Ed's behavior may suggest that he has brain damage or is mentally challenged. However, in The Lion Guard (2016), a similar character named Cheezi (like Ed) has his tongue sticking out of his mouth in some parts of an episode but unlike Ed he is more intelligent and speaks clearly. Supervising animator Dave Burgess jokes that Ed is really the smartest of the Hyenas but "pretends to be dumb" See more »
When Simba comes back to Pride Rock, he looks out at it, and you can see dead trees on Pride Rock. When Nala comes and looks at it they are gone. When Timon and Pumbaa come and look at it, the trees are back, but when the storm movie in they are gone again. After that scene, the trees are there for the rest of the movie. See more »

When the movie was released on DVD in October 2003, it offered two versions of the film: The "Special Edition" (the 2002 IMAX re-release), and the "Original Theatrical Release". The "Original Theatrical Release" is actually identical to the 2002 IMAX/"Special Edition" re-release, except that it opens with the memorial card to Frank Wells, following the Walt Disney Pictures logo. This includes the pouncing lesson scene. The Original Theatrical Release on the 2003 Platinum Edition DVD release omits the original scrolling end credits sequence and it contains the different end credits from the 2002 IMAX/Special Edition re-release. All of the other edits that were made to the 2002 IMAX re-release (the cleaned-up animation, etc.) are also present in this version. See more »
Delightful animated feature from Walt Disney Pictures about a naive young lion cub destined for greatness. Born the son of a beloved and authoritative king he's groomed to be the next ruler of the kingdom, but along the way he encounters tragic detours at the hands of his villainous uncle and scheming hyena henchmen. Years later—as an adult—he decides to embrace his destiny and take his proper place in the Circle of Life. Warm, intelligent, laugh-out loud funny film is a triumph in every aspect; unforgettable songs, snappy dialogue, remarkable animation, and a stellar cast of voices make this a treat for all ages. A rousing adventure that you can enjoy again and again, and arguably one of the finest animated films ever made. ****
