Disney The Lion King Bluray Giveaway Review


MBE partnered with Disney Studios for this review and giveaway

Animation You'll be Convinced is Live Action

One of my favorite Disney movies to see on the big screen this year is The Lion King (2019). Now available on Digital and starting October 22, audiences will be also be able to enjoy this technologically-advanced family movie masterpiece on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD.

The storyline -- the drama of a lion cub, the dad he looks up to, and the wicked uncle who seeks to rise above them both to crown himself king of the jungle -- follows the 1994 original animated movie closely.

Talent Behind & In Front of the Cameras

Using Disney's The Jungle Book (2016), which won an Oscar for best achievement in visual effects as the foundation, Director Jon Favreau took this year's The Lion King remake to the next level. The result in his latest endeavor is animals and scenery that looks as real as what I personally experienced on my family's dream trip African safari earlier this year.

With original songs by Tim Rice and Elton John, performances by Beyonce (who also plays the voice of Nala), and magnificent voice over articulations by icons like James Earl Ray as Mufasa, Chiwetel Ejofor (the evil Scar), Donald Glover as Simba and Seth Rogen (the comical Pumbaa), this is a film multiple generations will appreciate in various ways.

However, as speaking from the perspective of a mom, as much as I think this is technically amazing, I have to tell you that this movie is rated PG. It's rated that way for good reason: there are several very realistic-looking, graphic sequences of violence and peril that may be way too scary for younger and more sensitive viewers. So you'll definitely want to consider that before your kids watch this.
