I was so overwhelmed by the number and quality of the additional features, I almost forgot about the main attraction itself, the Lion King, presented in digital format with enhanced animation.
Right from the opening song I was brought back to the magical land of Pride Rock, home of Simba, Pumbaa and other beloved jungle friends.
This timeless classic tells the tale of a lion cub forced to leave his home, and his return to his rightful place as King of all Lions. Stunning imagery, amazing animation and Award-winning songs combine to create one of the most spectacular animated movies of all time.
