The Lion King


(out of 5)

One of Disney’s most lucrative films is this lovingly animated classic about a young lion (voiced by  and  at different ages) who returns from being exiled from his pride to reclaim his birthright from his evil uncle (played with delicious villainy by a scene-stealing ). This animated Hamlet works thanks to a smooth combination of elements, its serious drama compounded with the comic relief of supporting characters as well as a gorgeous song score by Elton John and Tim Rice (incidental music by Hans Zimmer).
