The Lion King DVD/Blu-Ray Review & Giveaway


My boys know about The Lion King but until this week they have never had the opportunity to watch the movie.

Simba, Mufasa, Nala, Timon and Pumbaa are back and better than ever this fall when Disney?s “The Lion King” roars into theaters and homes in breathtaking 3D. A special two-week theatrical extravaganza kicks off Sept. 16, 2011, showcasing the Oscar®- and Golden Globe®-winning film on the big screen in Disney Digital 3D™ for the first time ever, and its highly anticipated home entertainment debut kicks off October 4, celebrating the Diamond Edition release of the epic movie “The Lion King” in high-definition Blu-ray™ and Blu-ray 3D™.

The Blu-ray debut marks the first time “The Lion King” has been available in any form since 2004. Featuring pristine high definition picture and sound, the Blu-ray creates an incredible at-home experience with a host of picture and sound enhancements, interactive features and bonus content, including a new set of hilarious animated bloopers.


  •  “The Lion King” = Blu-ray 3D + Blu-ray 2D + DVD + Digital Copy™ 2-Disc Blu-ray Combo Pack (for the suggested retail price of $39.99 U.S./$46.99 Canada)
  •  “The Lion King” = Blu-ray 2D + DVD 8-Disc Trilogy (for the suggested retail price of $100.00 U.S./ $115.00 Canada)
  •  “The Lion King” = Blu-ray 3D + Blu-ray 2D + DVD + Digital Copy
  • “The Lion King 1 ½” = Blu-ray 2D + DVD
  • “The Lion King II: Simba?s Pride” = Blu-ray 2D + DVD

And the one-disc DVD Edition will be available on November 15.

My take:  The visual aspects of this DVD is breathtaking…you feel like you are right there in Africa with Simba each and every step of the way,the colors are simply spectacular.   The boys sat mesmerized throughout the entire movie they absolutely loved it.  I waited until they were in bed before watching  The Lion King: A Memoir-Don Hahn which was very informative.  Did you know that they brought in lions so the animators could watch their movements?  How cool is that!!

  1. When it first came out on VHS we purchased it and watched it all of the time. When DVDs came out, we never replaced it, so it’s been years…I’d love to see it again, and for my toddler to get his first chance at seeing it.

  2. I can’t wait to watch the Lion King because it will be the first time my little daughter will see it! That is always fun.

  3. I can’t wait to watch the Lion King again because even as a child, the soundtrack and visuals for this movie blew my socks right off… and now I’m an animation student!
