The toys are mistakenly delivered to a day-care center instead of the attic right before Andy leaves for college, and it's up to Woody to convince the other toys that they weren't abandoned and to return home.
How far did Simba go when he ran away from home, t's a question many have perhaps wondered, but given how Chinlund was tasked with re-creating the world of The Lion King in realistic fashion, he actually had to calculate it out. "I remember watching the ginal Lion King] movie and never could figure out how far Simba ran away for him to grow up independently. How far away did he actually run?" Chinlund mused. "I love the first film but geography was a huge problem for me on that movie. It's an animated movie so they used the available slipperiness of illustration to change scale. Pride Rock changed shape and scale throughout the movie so I don't think it was their intent to deliver like a tight geographical piece, but it did frustrate me as a designer." And so Chinlund set out on building a world map to answer the question. They decided that Simba was out there three or four days crossing the desert before he wound up on the shore of Cloud Forest, so if a cub travels about 12 miles a day, Chinlund gives the rough estimate of 50 miles See more »
Simba and Nala would never mate., Given the pride dynamics, there's no way that Simba and Nala aren't related. At the very least, they're cousins, but more likely they're actually brother and sister. So they wouldn't be feeling the love tonight. See more »
Life's - not fair - is it my little friend? While some are born to feast - others spend their lives in the dark... begging for scraps. The way I see it you and I are exactly the same, we both want to find a way out.

The Disney logo has a hand-drawn animated design and resembles the 1960s Disney logo, the same design used in Jon Favreau's previous Disney film The Jungle Book (2016). See more »
This is by far and away one of my top movies of all time and definitely a movie that I can say the lines pretty much the whole way through.
After thinking about "what I was disappointed with", I would say the following:
1. The broadway voices of Nathan lane, Ernie sambella and Jeremy irons really added that punch to the characters that you "don't know that you're missing till it's gone". Here I feel these characters fall flat with the "less projecting voices" and it was very noticeable. Seth Rogan was the best, but still, the missing "broadway aspect" these voices carried made the movie fall flat where it just could have been cast better???
2. So many of the little humorous exchanges with the hyenas and with rafiki were taken away. Part of the magic of the lion king was in the humor which was lost in this film. They did try and compensate a little, but I feel the laughter was just not there. Whoopi goldberg and cheech Marin were comedians, why was this not explored more to bring new comedians in for the hyenas roles?
Without the booming voices and humour, you realize that the movie is lacklustre where you are left with the story and the cinematography only. The cinematography is fantastic and I know this is a super hard movie to live up to the original, but I feel a lot of the magic that make this movie "a whole package" was just not there.
Did not feel the same about Aladdin remake - another movie that was with huge shoes to fill (duh, robin williams) and the Aladdin remake was absolutely fantastic.
