The Lion King 3D: Movie Review

Sep 29, 2011

The award-winning 1994 animated Disney movie The Lion King has returned to the silver screen once again to transport a whole new generation of viewers to the heart of Africa, but unlike the first time 3D enhancements will make audiences feel like they are in the middle of animal kingdom politics. Find out more in this Kidzworld Movie Review!

The Lion King tells the story of Simba, heir to Mufasa, king of the lions at Pride Rock. Mufasa teaches his son about how to be king, how to protect their lands and The Pride, and especially about staying away from the dangerous shadowy lands outside of the Pride Land. Simba’s traitorous uncle Scar desires the crown and tricks Simba and his friend Nala into falling prey to the evil hyenas who have invaded the pride lands, and who try to kill the lion cubs. Not realizing his brother has been plotting with the hyenas and has turned against him, Mufasa looks to Scar to help him after saving the cubs, but Scar let’s a terrible tragedy occur so that he can inherit the crown, and Simba flees the Pride Lands in shame thinking that the accident is his fault, letting Scar step into the crown. After fleeing to the wastelands Simba is discovered by a friendly meerkat, Timon, and his warthog pal Pumbaa. His new friends help him forget his troubles and learn to survive without The Pride, until one day he unexpectedly crosses paths with Nala and is drawn back to The Pride to reclaim his birthright.

When it was first released The Lion King was the cutting edge of 2D animation technology, and one of Disney’s most popular animated films by far, starring the voices of celebrities like Whoopi Goldberg and Nathan Lane. Adding 3D to the mix has brought back to life an already spectacular-looking film, and revamped it for a new generation of Disney fans. The Lion King also features an unforgettable soundtrack (written by Elton John and Tim Rice) that won two Academy Awards and spawned a popular Broadway musical. Once you’ve seen this film you won’t be able to get Hakuna Matata out of your head for weeks! But The Lion King 3D is a special limited-time release, so go and see it before it’s gone!
