Get The Lion King on Blu-ray and DVD TODAY!

Hearing that The Lion King had been made into a live action movie was something I was honestly unsure about. Having lived through the first version of the movie in cartoon format it was hard to think of it in any other way. But having watched it now I have to say I really enjoyed the new adaptation. My daughter on the other hand isn't quite as on-board. Because she was little when she saw the first one and that's the way she remembers it and thinks that's how it should be. So I guess it's one of those movies you'll either really enjoy, be on the fence about, or just not be on board with. But who knows as she gets older she may appreciate it as much as I do.

If you haven't seen it yet here's a small clip to wet your taste buds for what's to come:

Disney’s “The Lion King,” the worldwide phenomenon that brought the Pride Lands’ iconic characters to life in a whole new way, arrived on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray™ and DVD TODAY! Directed by Jon Favreau, the summer blockbuster, which reigned supreme with audiences worldwide — earning over $1 billion at the global box office and an A CinemaScore — journeys home with all-new bonus features, music videos and an exclusive extra for Digital consumers.

In-home audiences will feel the love as they trek behind the scenes and to the African savanna through “The Journey to ‘The Lion King,’” a three-part documentary that explores the film’s creation. It features visits to the Playa Vista production facility where talent, including Donald Glover (voice of Simba) honor and elevate the animated classic’s iconic music; discussions with Favreau and team who used cutting-edge technology to create photorealistic animals and environments; and filmmaker and cast reflections on the timeless tale that has moved generations. Extras also include “More to Be Scene,” layer-by-layer progressions of some of the film’s most iconic moments; lyric video for “Never Too Late” by Elton John and music video for “Spirit” by Beyoncé; sing-alongs to the film’s unforgettable songs; and a feature on the “Protect the Pride” campaign, which focuses on protecting and revitalizing the lion population.

In “The Lion King,” pioneering filmmaking techniques bring treasured characters to life in a whole new way. 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. The all-star cast includes Donald Glover as Simba, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter as Nala, James Earl Jones as Mufasa, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Scar, Seth Rogen as Pumbaa and Billy Eichner as Timon.

And just in time for Halloween I also have this fun Simba stencil you can download, print and use to carve your Halloween pumpkins!
