Simba idolizes his father, King Mufasa, and takes to heart his own royal destiny. But not everyone in the kingdom celebrates the new cub's arrival. Scar, Mufasa's brother, and former heir to the throne, has plans of his own. The battle for Pride Rock is ravaged with betrayal, tragedy, and drama, ultimately resulting in Simba's exile. With help from a curious pair of newfound friends, Simba will have to figure out how to grow up and take back what is rightfully his.

It's a pretty film but doesn't feel necessary. I didn't watch it the whole way through, it did not seem to add a whole lot to the original and I got bored. I don't think this was a good animated film to make into a live action version.

This is a fantastic movie for the little ones and for those who loved the original Lion King that came out in 1994. The songs were well done, and many of the characters got more backstory than the original. My favorite part of this remake is the accuracy that Disney did in representing animal behaviors and mannerisms (and I'm speaking as an Animal Science Major). I strongly recommend this movie for all ages, the Circle of Life is something we all need to remember everyday.

The facial expressions tho...

The film proved to be a surprising treat, with the CGI effects going over better than I thought it would. The animal cubs warmed my heart, but there was nothing overly extraordinary about the film that isn't in the original '90s version. The remake follows the same pattern without straying (except for the occasional spare joke or line that wasn't in the original film).

For those who watched the original animated feature, don't expect the same kind of spark. The new music was pedestrian and slow. Also, there is a big difference being able to invoke the willful suspension of disbelief with animation and those animals that look real. The story line is the same old patriarchal BS. How much more interesting would it have been to have the lionesses kill Scar and take over themselves. Another quibble- the male lions could not have contributed to the new generation as they were not equipped with the right equipment.

Fantastic. Just like watching Disney and National Geographic at the same time. Very pleasant to watch. Everything is synchronized and believable at the fantasy level. Nice dialogues. Although the plot is the same old but the presentation is totally different. Highly recommended.

Saw the original animated move when it first came out on VHS. I was so impressed I watched it a couple of times with our kids. Then in my 60's saw it on stage a couple times and liked it a lot. We got the DVD yesterday and watched it and it was another wonderful experiance. The color and sound was fantastic. It was another way to experiance a lovely story, the circle of life created by Disney.

Beautiful and nostalgic.

The animation: breathtakingly beautiful and detailed. The story: breathlessly copied from the original hand-drawn version (plus a couple of comical Easter eggs from other Disney animated movies). The Biblical references mentioned by the reviewer below are there but not as obvious (or as numerous) as those to Shakespeare's Hamlet.

Young Simba: What's a motto?

Timon: Nothing, what's a motto-with-you?

Pumbaa: Nice!

Timon: Boom!

Over 100 quotes in IMDb already, thanks to the contributors; this exchange is my favorite:

Hyena: Looks like we'll be having pig for dinner. Plump and chubby.
Pumbaa: Chubby? Did he just call me chubby?
Timon: Uh-oh.
Pumbaa: It sounded a lot like he just said "chubby". Which would be a mistake because... I will not be made to feel ashamed of who I am.
Timon: Oh, boy.
Pumbaa: I may run from hyenas... but I will always fight a bully
