Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: The Lion King, more than any of the recent wave of Disney animated features, has the resonance to stand not just as a terrific cartoon but as an emotionally pungent movie. – Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: Even with its flaws, this latest Disney animated feature once again delivers what its audience wants. Too bad flesh and blood films can't be this consistent. – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times, Aug 2, 2015

Fresh: It bears repeating that The Lion King is quite entertaining as children's fare goes these days. But Disney has established a standard so high on animated features that anything less than a classic leaves you feeling that something's missing. – Gene Siskel, Chicago Tribune, Jul 31, 2013

Fresh: At this point in animation history, we can expect no less than perfection from Disney, and they deliver. – Jami Bernard, New York Daily News, Feb 9, 2018

Nuff said! Everybody knows that!!

5 stars isn't enough

This movie is the one i have been waiting for. I complained to Itunes that they had ever Disney movie under the son but the one i wanted. not only was the movie good but the musical score was top notch with songs like...I Just Cant Wait To Be King...Hakuna Matata and the big one the song that was played on the radio so much i almost got sick of it the Circle Of Life. this movie just couldn't fail. it had all the elements that a great movie needed. If you see only one Disney movie Lion King should be it. But i dont think just seeing Lion king will do it for you if u like good Animation Disney is a solid animation Nation.

Brings Back Memories!!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this movie!

Can't wait to watch it with my family!
