The Lion King is a near perfect Disney film with its memorable characters, great soundtrack, and gorgeous animation!

This is one of the most popular and important Disney animated movies of all time. It's dark, emotionally stirring, and hard to watch at times. It has a great story about revenge and although the plot isn't entirely original, the movie handles it so well that it didn't bother me. The intro is very memorable and it will forever be remembered as one of the best movie intros of all time. I'm not going to spoil anything but a particular characters death is handled so well that it made most people cry bitter tears regardless of their age. It's probably the most saddest scene for any animated film. Like most Disney animated films, it offered adult themes which makes it good and enjoyable for grown ups as well. With some Disney films my nostalgia wears off but with this film, it gets better every time I watch it. Its final act has more action then you'd expect to find in a Disney film. I did rather enjoy the ending scene. Also, it has one of if not the best movie soundtrack of all time too. It perfectly fit the mood and setting of the movie and it's pretty catchy. It's a must see for all animated movie fans,

I am clearly some kind of heretic but after only seeing this for the first time last night I wasn't overly impressed. Of course I was already familiar with the story and most of the soundtrack so it was no great surprise, while I found the animation and comedy turns clumsy. I still want to see the stage show however...

Cheesy story having me believe Mufasa is not a dictator who eats his subjects, defying his brother's lament, poetically being killed by his own dinner. Very one-sided fascism is revelled here. Son heeds Scar's efforts to eat subjects after full-life-span, hopefully.

Box sets and alternate versions should not have their own entries on Flixster/Rotten Tomatoes. It makes things confusing.

Uno di quei film che ti riesce ad emozionare anche dopo la decima visione. Con una trama coinvolgente ed una colonna sonora intramontabile Il Re Leone Ŕ senza dubbio il miglior film d'animazione di tutti gli anni '90.
