The Lion King is one of the greatest animated movies of all time. It has a great storyline that includes amazing characters and not to mention the excellent blend of songs which include, Circle of Life, Hakuna Matata, and Can You Feel the Love Tonight. This movie features a great mix of humour, drama, and many emotional moments. It presents the story of a lion cub named Simba, who is the son of powerful King Mufasa. After Simba's evil uncle Scar murders Mufasa, he is led to believe that he is responsible for the tragic death of his own father and is ultimately forced to leave the kingdom away from his family while also losing his throne as king to Scar. In his exile, he makes new friends and lives a happy life in the jungle. When he matures, he is able to realize that he must defeat Scar and claim his rightful throne as the Lion King. This is a masterpiece made by Disney and I truly recommend for everyone to watch it. 5/5

I am sure that almost everyone has seen this classic Disney film at least once in their lives. Of course that’s an exaggeration, although it is very true that this film is super popular. Simba is a young lion who is the main character of this film. His uncle, Scar, is plotting to take over the throne since Simba is next in line. Mufasa, the current king, is the father of Simba. Scar intentionally causes Mufasa to die and blames it on Simba, who believes him and flees the kingdom. However, Simba eventually learns that it was, in fact, Mufasa who killed his father, not him. Will Simba gain his kingdom and retake the throne which rightfully belongs to him?

"The Lion King" is filled with great characters, but best of all, it has some of the most wonderful songs put to animation. The credit goes to Elton John and Tim Rice were selected for Academy Awards for the song "Can You Feel The Love Tonight". On top of that, Hanz Zimmer won for the Best Original Score. I love who they picked to play both the young Simba Jonathan Taylor Thomas and the adult Simba Matthew Broderick. It took 29 writers to come up with the story, but they made a classic when they were all done. There have been so many "Lion King" products and books that I hesitated to even write a review. It deserves to be praised and not forgotten as some instant hit. "The Lion King" will be like other Walt Disney Classics. Future generations will still be enjoying the beauty of its story and music.
