In order to power the city, monsters have to scare children so that they scream. However, the children are toxic to the monsters, and after a child gets through, 2 monsters realize things may not be what they think.
The toys are mistakenly delivered to a day-care center instead of the attic right before Andy leaves for college, and it's up to Woody to convince the other toys that they weren't abandoned and to return home.
A young lion prince is cast out of his pride by his cruel uncle, who claims he killed his father. While the uncle rules with an iron paw, the prince grows up beyond the Savannah, living by a philosophy: No worries for the rest of your days.

The premiere for the IMAX version of the film in New York had a strange request on the invitations: "No nannies." (In other words, "You are more than welcome to bring your children to this movie, but we sent the invitation to you and not to them for a reason.") See more »
When Rafiki parts the grass to show Simba the Dream Pool, he pulls aside the grass on Simba's right (and holds it there). However when Simba passes through the gap, the grass on his left is also pushed aside as if by some invisible hand. It springs back once he's through. See more »

Life's not fair, is it? You see, I... well, I shall never be king. And you... shall never see the light of another day. Hmm-hmm-hmm, adieu.

When the movie was released on DVD in October 2003, it offered two versions of the film: The "Special Edition" (the 2002 IMAX re-release), and the "Original Theatrical Release". The "Original Theatrical Release" is actually identical to the 2002 IMAX/"Special Edition" re-release, except that it opens with the memorial card to Frank Wells, following the Walt Disney Pictures logo. The Original Theatrical Release on the 2003 Platinum Edition DVD release omits the blue Walt Disney Pictures opening and closing logos and it uses the same opening and closing logos as the 2002 IMAX/Special Edition re-release. This includes the pouncing lesson scene. The Original Theatrical Release on the 2003 Platinum Edition DVD release omits the original scrolling end credits sequence and it uses an edited version of the same end credits from the 2002 IMAX/Special Edition re-release purporting to be the end credits from the Original Theatrical Release. All of the other edits that were made to the 2002 IMAX re-release (the cleaned-up animation, etc.) are also present in this version. See more »
The Lion King is a great film. Along with a great story (inspired by William Shakespeare's Hamlet), terrific animation, and an all star cast of voices, there are the lessons that are learned from this film (despite being a little rough for the younger children). Like responsibility and honor.
I rank this animated film among the great films I have ever seen. It was part of my childhood and it is a film experience I will never forget. And hopefully, you won't either. A++
