From the moment The Lion King was first released in 1994 it became an instant Disney classic, with audiences the world over falling in love with the characters, story and amazing animation. The film was joined by an award-winning soundtrack that introduced us all to the magic of the Circle of Life and taught us about Timon, Pumbaa and Simba's Problem Free Philosophy, Hakuna Matata.
Set the stage for the adventures of Simba, the feisty lion cub who "just can't wait to be king". But his envious Uncle Scar has plans for his own ascent to the throne and he forces Simba's exile from the kingdom. Alone and adrift, Simba soon joins the escapades of a hilarious meerkat named Timon and his warm-hearted warthog pal, Pumbaa. Adopting their carefree lifestyle of Hakuna Matata, Simba ignores his real responsibilities until he realises his destiny and returns to the Pride Lands to claim his place in the Circle of Life.
Featuring the all-star vocal talents of Matthew Broderick, Nathan Lane, Whoopi Goldberg, James Earl Jones, Jeremy Irons, Ernie Sabella, Jonathan Taylor Thomas, Robert Guillaume, Cheech Marin and Moira Kelly, The Lion King is a rip-roaring comedy with an uplifting message of courage, loyalty and hope, an ageless tale for all ages.
