So let me just start off by telling you all that I have massive chills. I just finished the movie and am seriously covered in goosebumps. I love that Disney can STILL to this to me, with a movie I’ve seen a dozen times or more. Guh.
So The Lion King. How great is it? I know you all love this movie, just based on the notes on the posts this week. It’s definitely a favorite. So I know you’re all with me when I say that this is probably one of Disney’s best movies. From the music, to the animation, the colors, the characters, the voice actors for those characters, everything about this movie is exactly spot on.
So I don’t bore you with my endless rambling about how much I love this movie, I’m going to take a quick second to mention the stage show. I was really tempted to post some of the music this week, but this blog is devoted to the animated movies, so I refrained. That being said, if you’re ever interested in checking some of it out, Fuck Yeah Disney Songs, has a ton of it up. Honestly, and I know this is going to sound blasphemous, I like the Broadway soundtrack better than the movie one. Oh, and if you ever get the chance to see the live show? Do it. Don’t think about it. Just do it. I swear to you that it’s worth it…just for the opening number. You will be blown away. :D
Okay mini rant over, on to question time. We all know that Mufasa’s death in this movie is seriously tragic, and emotional. How many of you still cry every single time it happens? I know I do. Every. Single. Time. So the question is what do you think is the saddest scene in any disney movie? What made you cry the most? Mine is definitely Mufasa, and the scene where Ray dies in Princess and the Frog. What about you?
King of Pride Rock - The Lion King
This is the score that plays over the last section of the movie, the fight between Simba and Scar, and then the end when Pride Rock is restored and Simba becomes king. It’s freaking gorgeous and I adore it, so I figured I’d put it here for you guys to listen to. :)
I don’t know if you posted this already, but in honor of the 3D and Blu-Ray versions coming out soon, Disney released bloopers for TLK too!
This is so hysterical! I haven’t seen this before, so definitely thanks for submitting it. And thank you to the other person who submitted as well! (The best part is right at the end. ;))
