This is a beautiful movie, and easily one of the all-time greatest films. It's pretty close to perfect in almost every way - the visual design, the voice acting, the music, the story, the writing. A timeless and ageless classic.

Rewatching The Lion King for podcasting purposes (coming soon to a podcatcher near you!), I'm surprised by how quickly Simba grows up and indeed, how short the movie is. Were it made today, there might be more to his adventures in exile. I'm also rather shocked at how violent and sexual Disney's animation films were in the 90s (holding up Hunchback as another example). But memorable songs, gorgeous animation, a strong voice cast, nothing shocking there. My memory didn't fail me there. There's a reason this one has become an enduring classic worthy of Broadway shows and various spin-offs, and it's not the over-reported Hamlet connections (they're rather thin, again, wait for the podcast). It's everything I mentioned plus the sense of a new world opening up based on African rather than Western iconography (in a way, this is the Black Panther of its day), the Circle of Life opposed to the hyenas' death cult in a struggle for dominance, overlaid with a Shakespearean (ok, fine, you made me say it) body politic that makes the King's morality manifest in the land. It leaves you wanting more because they only really scratch the premise's surface. Disney fully acknowledges how important this was to them by putting Pride Rock behind the castle somewhere in their Wonderful World animation.

Very well-executed, but some of the attitudes that are promoted are pretty hard to stomach.

Pretty good animation. But it just can't touch Miyazaki's best work.

Masterpiece, one of the best from Disney, probably the best soundtrack of all
