The “live action” (in fact brilliant CGI) new version of Disney’s 1994 animation.  After the murder of his father, a young lion prince flees his kingdom only to learn the true meaning of responsibility and bravery.

For more information, including a full cast list and reviews, go to:


Favreau delivers in a superb display that invokes just the right amounts of nostalgia, repetition and modernisation. The CGI has been upgraded from the (still impressive) Jungle Book and does nothing to take away from the heart of a much-loved original.”  UK Film Review

It’s impossible to deny the film’s appeal. Those who have never seen the 1994 The Lion King will “ooh” and “aah” at the cute animals and shrink away from the nasty ones. Those who have seen the 1994 version may be overtaken by nostalgia and sentiment. “  James Berardinelli

“Jon Favreau’s The Lion King is an enjoyable remake and harmonises warm feelings and splendid tech effects for a story that continues to inspire.”  The Upcoming
