The Lion King

Scary scenes. Some of which may be too intense for very young children.

About this Film

The Lion King

ODEON says...
From Disney Live Action, director Jon Favreau's all-new “The Lion King” journeys to the African savanna where a future king is born. Simba idolizes his father, King Mufasa, and takes to heart his own royal destiny. But not everyone in the kingdom celebrates the new cub's arrival. Scar, Mufasa's brother—and former heir to the throne—has plans of his own. 

The battle for Pride Rock is ravaged with betrayal, tragedy and drama, ultimately resulting in Simba's exile. With help from a curious pair of newfound friends, Simba will have to figure out how to grow up and take back what is rightfully his.

Disney's The Lion King 3D is the best disney film of the year 2019. The 3D effects and the CGI are excellent. Jon Favreau is the best director. Donald Glover is brilliant as Simba & Beyonce is brilliant as Nala. Go see it in IMAX 3D. You'll love it.

Same as 1994

I love the Lion King! It's one of the most exciting films to ever come out of Disney. However all I'm getting from this is a shot by shot, expressionless take on the original film here. I'm sure families and younger audiences will enjoy the film.

This film was brilliant from start to finish. Please do not let others views spoil The Lion King for you. Great cast, great songs, great effects, beautifully done.
