The Lion KingDVD - 2011 | DVD ed.
From Library Staff
Catchy music, silly characters, and an emotional storyline make this Disney story a forever favorite.
A boy's father is murdered by his uncle, who then assumes control of the kingdom. The boy spends half the story procrastinating and feeling sorry for himself before finally seeking revenge. Hamlet, you say? No, it's the Lion King, silly!
Looking to tell the story of Shakespeare's Hamlet to the crayon crowd? Never fear, The Lion King is here. The evil uncle kills his brother to gain power while the dead king's cub runs away think he is at fault for his father's death. All beautifully executed as a memorable musical.

Timon: Pumbaa, I don't wonder; I know.
Pumbaa: Oh. What are they?
Timon: They're fireflies. Fireflies that, uh... got stuck up on that big bluish-black thing.
Pumbaa: Oh, gee. I always thought they were balls of gas burning billions of miles away.
Timon: Pumbaa, with you, everything's gas.
