"Hakuna Matata" would mean never having to be subjected to The Lion King ever again, much less having Simba's growing pains coming at your face in 3D.

Restored and remastered, "Lion King" looks and sounds spectacular. Too bad about all those ads and the looney navigation.

You can't go wrong with The Lion King. It is as magnificent on the home screen as it was in the movie house.

Before there were talking toys, a search to locate a fish, monsters in the closet, and jolly green giants in the woods, there was the king, The Lion King.

Afraid to fly? Can't afford a plane ticket to Kenya? Though not as satisfying as a two-week trip around the world, it'll still take you that long to get through the features on this DVD edition of The Lion King.

The situation concerning the origins of "The Lion King" in "Kimba the White Lion" is one of the reasons why I like to call Disney's parent company Mala Vista.
