ABOUT THE LION KING:
An unforgettable story, breathtaking animation, beloved characters and award-winning music sets thestage 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."

Alone and adrift, Simba soon joins the escapades of a hilarious meerkat named Timon and his warmhearted warthog pal, Pumbaa.
