It never ceases to amaze me how film animation has advanced. Producer/Director Jon Favreau’s The Lion King is the current example of how realistic it has become.
But that’s not the best aspect of this wonderful film. It’s theme of “the circle of life” as one moves from "no worries" childhood to purposed adulthood is an excellent lesson for both young and old.
If you have children, this is a must-see. If you are a child at heart, this is a must-see. If you think you are too sophisticated for this type of fare, this is a must-see.
If you really can’t get the message, at least you’ll be delighted by the antics of Pumbaa (voice of Seth Rogen) and Timon (voice of Billy Eichon).
I give The Lion King a 4.7 out of 5.
