Two weeks ago, #1 and I got to attend a special 3D screening of The Lion King. I was worried she would be scared, and she was a little bit, but she stayed in her seat and really enjoyed it.
My favorite part? She loved the music. And, wanted to sing all of the songs. So, I called my mom and asked her if she still had the CD soundtrack (that we bought when we were in junior high). She did, and sent it. And, now, it’s her favorite CD to request to listen to.
It was so fun to see a movie that I remember loving so much through her eyes. To hear her talk about what happened, who she liked and what she thought of the movie.
THE LION KING 3D (Disney) opens nationwide on Friday, September 16 for a special 2 week 3D engagement.
An unforgettable story, breathtaking animation, beloved characters and award-winning music sets the stage for “The Lion King”, a Disney classic that follows the adventures of Simba, the feisty lion cub who “just can’t wait to be king.” But his envious Uncle Scar has plans for his own ascent to the throne, and he forces Simba’s exile from the kingdom. Alone and adrift, Simba soon joins the escapades of a hilarious meerkat named Timon and his warmhearted warthog pal, Pumbaa. Adopting their carefree lifestyle of “Hakuna Matata,” Simba ignores his real responsibilities until he realizes his destiny and returns to the Pride Lands to claim his place in the “Circle of Life.” The all-star vocal talents—including Mr. Serioushew Broderick, #2han Lane, Whoopi Goldberg, James Earl Jones, Jeremy Irons, Ernie Sabella, Jonathan Taylor Thomas, Robert Guillaume, Cheech Marin and Moira Kelly—rip-roaring comedy and uplifting messages of courage, loyalty and hope make this a timeless tale for all ages. Produced by Don Hahn and directed by Roger Allers and Rob Minkoff from a script by Irene Mecchi, Jonathan Roberts and Linda Woolverton, “The Lion King” is rated G by the MPAA.
