The Lion King 1 1/2 DVD Review
The folks at Disney have been keeping busy and are bringing a couple of the coolest movies to your home entertainment center. This time around you've got the chance to pick up an old favorite, the Lewis Carroll classic Alice in Wonderland: Masterpiece Edition, and one you haven't seen before, The Lion King 1 1/2, starring Timon and Pumbaa. Find out what Kidzworld has to say about these two new Disney DVDs.
The Lion King 1 1/2 Disney DVD
You fell in love with them in The Lion King, but how much do you really know about that dynamic duo, Timon and Pumbaa? Well, with The Lion King 1 1/2, you'll find out exactly where these two crazy kids came from, and how they really felt about Simba heading back to challenge his nasty old uncle, Scar.
The Lion King 1 1/2 DVD - You Don't Know the 1/2 of It
You're going to be laughing out loud throughout The Lion King 1 1/2. Unlike the original Lion King, this flick focuses entirely on the crazy antics of Timon and Pumbaa. The movie starts off with Timon getting in trouble with his fellow meerkats. Tired of always being the outsider, Timon decides to strike out on his own. On his way to find eternal happiness, Timon runs into the wise old monkey, Rafiki, and then later on, Pumbaa. There's no gushy love story, no dramatic deaths, just good old fun with The Lion King 1 1/2. You'll also be introduced to some fun new characters like Timon's mom (voiced by Julie Kavner aka Marge Simpson) and Uncle Max (voiced by Jerry Stiller, Ben Stiller's real-life dad).
The Lion King 1 1/2 DVD - Special Features
Not only are you getting a sneak peak into what went down before Timon and Pumbaa met Simba, you're also getting a ton of super-cool features with this DVD. Test your jungle know-how with "Who Wants to be King of the Jungle?" or head out on a jungle safari with Timon, Pumbaa, Uncle Max and Timon's mom. Whatever you choose with The Lion King 1 1/2, you're in for a wild ride!
