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.

Not as exciting as watching the original animation nor the theatre musical... computer animation didn’t do justice

This new version of The Lion King is fine. It's beautifully made and visually appealing to watch. But really, it doesn't add anything new or different to the animated 1994 movie. Other live action remakes of classic Disney animated films have often added new elements to the story, such as new interpretations of certain characters and slightly different plot points, but this movie doesn't seem different much at all. And it didn't really feel like a "live action" movie, it just felt like a fancier animated movie. So while I liked it OK, if you've already seen the 1994 version, there's no strong compelling reason to see this version.

I enjoyed this adaptation, though I do think the animated version is still the best!

The "Lion King" is a DISNEY rip-off of "Kimba the White Lion" produced by Iwao Takamoto back in the 60's. All they did was change the name of the main character from Kimba to Simba. There was "Boss Claw" the evil lion now named "Scar". There was a royal Mandrill advisor named Daniel Baboon. Hyenas once again portray the snickering henchmen. Utter Hollywood Plagiarism!

Visually interesting, but if this does not scare kids too much, it should. Some messages in it seem bungled, for a kids movie.

Worth seeing once to see what it is like.

An amazing, jaw-dropping experience which I'm so glad I got to watch it in the theatre when it first came out. Glad to be able to watch it again at home on DVD, still a wonderful experience!

Good remake, but I feel like the original is better. The cast is solid and it's great to hear James Earl Jones as Mufasa again!

It was a nice adaption to the original. Original still my favourite as some of my favourite lines and scenes were not in this remake.
"what do you want me to do dress in drag and do the hula?" "They call me Mr. Pig" were missing.

It's a pretty film but doesn't feel necessary. I didn't watch it the whole way through, it did not seem to add a whole lot to the original and I got bored. I don't think this was a good animated film to make into a live action version.

Mufasa: Everything the light touches... is our kingdom. But a king's time as ruler rises and falls like the sun. One day, the sun will set on my time here, and will rise with you as the new king.

Young Simba: What's a motto?

Timon: Nothing, what's a motto-with-you?

Pumbaa: Nice!

Timon: Boom!

"Everything you see - exists together in a delicate balance. While others search for what they can take, a true king searches for what he can give."

Over 100 quotes in IMDb already, thanks to the contributors; this exchange is my favorite:

Hyena: Looks like we'll be having pig for dinner. Plump and chubby.
Pumbaa: Chubby? Did he just call me chubby?
Timon: Uh-oh.
Pumbaa: It sounded a lot like he just said "chubby". Which would be a mistake because... I will not be made to feel ashamed of who I am.
Timon: Oh, boy.
Pumbaa: I may run from hyenas... but I will always fight a bully

I said it sounds like Mufasa's voice from the cartoon. My brother said it's the same person. I heard father in the original but here he said dad. When Simba was introducting Zazu to Timon and Pumbaa, Timon said, Oh wow, it's a puffin. Everyone laughed, we did too. they laughed at i hope its a quiet death you know just not a lot of chewing it remines me of beauty and the beast i said i was saying to myslef if i don't say guest a and he did everyone laughed how they ran after saying that i said hes already talking to her i thought he will call her like in the origanl movie and he thought it was mufasa but he said to get away from his mother then she said Simba and so did Scar later Simba said I'm nothing he didn't say that in the cartoon this looks fimilere i said in theathers and then he said i said oh he said it too and again my brother laughed how young simba said no that his dad falls and simba said murrderer they laughed that he sad did he just call my chuby and he said bully scare said he fooled the hayenas that wasn't in the cartoon and simba said that fool the hayens just like you fooled me and in the end simba got married and had a new baby with Nala and he relly was the king of the prides lands and we had Lion king Cookies that i planed to bring to theathers to watch eat to watch during the movie and now watching the dvd at home i forgot to eat them again they are honey gram cookies from Wall- Mart we bought cause the new movie was coming to teathers. and i brought my stuff toy Simba to watch the movie along with.
