Samuel E. Wright (Kron) and Max Casella (Zini) were both part of the original Broadway cast of Disney's "The Lion King" stage musical in 1997. Wright portrayed Mufasa, while Casella originated the role of Timon. Alfre Woodard who voiced Pino would later voice Sarabi in The Lion King (1994)'s 2019 Live Action Reboot. See more »
The opening scene takes place in North America, yet several animals are present that belonged to other continents. The Oviraptor, the dinosaur that steals Aladar's egg, was native to Asia, while the large amphibian Koolasuchus only lived near the antarctic circle. See more »
Some things start out big, and some things start out small, very small. But sometimes the smallest thing can make the biggest changes of all.

In Danish theatres, the opening scene was cut by 2 seconds (Where the Carnosaurs bites down on another dinosaur). See more »
This was yet another example, when it came out in 2000, of the latest strides being made in animation, computer-or-otherwise. At the time, I thought to myself, "Man, this just gets better and better all the time." Six years later, I am still saying that but with newer animated efforts.
Some of the scenes in here look so real you wouldn't know they were drawings. The colors are particularly good in the opening minutes. They are just stunning at times.
The story is pretty interesting, too. It's not great, but not boring, either, and not too kid-oriented. Adults can enjoy this. In fact, I was surprised at the amount of violence. That, and some of the jokes actually make this more for adults than kids in many spots.
I recommend the movie for its story and innovative techniques.
