A clever retelling of a classic tale from skewed p.o.v. of supporting characters.
Whimsical and fun, The Lion King 1 1/2 is an enjoyable romp behind the fake scenes of a real movie.
It is creative, and that's alone enough to rocket it to the top of the Disney sequel heap.
"The Lion King 1 1/2" is a very clever "syncquel" that's entertaining in the beginning but weighed down by a premise and format that seem ill-suited for a full-length feature.
Clever and mostly charming--most kids will enjoy.
In no way does The Lion King 1 1/2 measure up to the standards set by the original movie, but it does add an enjoyable twist to the fable.
Quite inventive for a Disney straight-to-video release . . .
This is clearly the best video sequel that the mouse house has produced to date. Hakuna matata!
This may become known as the gold standard for straight-to-video cartoon releases.
Most Disney straight-to-video sequels are bunk, but here is an entertaining exception.
The Lion King 1 1/2 is visually beautiful, musically delightful and slap-the-knee-till-it's-raw funny! There are oodles of fun filled hours and super-wide smiles awaiting you.
While the young cubs will delight in The Lion King 1-1/2, there is also a treasure trove of pop culture references and dialogue-asides especially for adult film buffs.
I think this is what one would call a total clusterf-ck.
The Lion King 1.5 is hilarious, has a nice story that connects with the first, and is just a much better sequel than The Lion king 2.
It stands ut from theatrical disney productions because of its inventive way of retelling the original story from diffeent characters prespective.
A childhood favourite and a classic! A must see!
