5 reasons why I adore The Lion King

Since subscribing to Disney Life UK, I’ve been making my way back through the Disney classics. Recently I watched the Lion King, one of the best movies ever, and it reminded me how much I adore the film – one of Disney’s most successful creations. Today I’m going to talk to you about why I love this movie!

1. The incredible soundtrack.

Elton John and Tim Rice’s music is just so perfect for this movie. Circle of Life, Hakuna Matata and Can You Feel the Love Tonight are some of my favourite Disney songs of all time. I actually sang Can You Feel the Love Tonight at my big sister’s Wedding!

2. The characters.

From Simba and Mufasa to Timba and Pumba, there are so many brilliant characters in the Lion King. Each character has their own personality, which makes them so memorable. Rowen Atkinson is so great as Zazu. They couldn’t have picked a better actor for that role!

3. The important messages it teaches you about responsibility.

At the end of the movie, when Nala tries to get Simba to come home to Pride Rock, it teaches us that sometimes we have to face up to things that we’re scared of and assume our responsibilities, for the greater good.

4. The fact that the movie focuses on family.

The father-son relationship between Mufasa and Simba teaches you so much about family and that we should do everything we can to protect our loved ones.

5. The gorgeous animated landscapes.

Doesn’t Pride Rock and the surrounding kingdom look luscious? One day I’ll hopefully get to go on a proper safari in Africa, but until then, I’ve got the Animal Kingdom Lodge at Walt Disney World to look forward to.

Are you a Lion King fan too?
Thanks for reading my blog today.
