The Lion King is one of my all time favorite Disney movies…apart from Toy Story. I love the way the movie was written and find the songs in it to be very catchy! The Lion King is the fifth title to join the Walt Disney Signature Collection, which includes groundbreaking films created or inspired by the imagination and legacy of Walt Disney, featuring timeless stories and characters that have touched generations. It takes its place alongside “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs,” “Beauty and the Beast,” “Pinocchio” and “Bambi.” How awesome is that?
