There is a new classic ready to be shared with your family! It is time to celebrate as the The Lion King is now available on Blu-Ray. It is now a part of the acclaimed Walt Disney Signature Collection!
Although I was in college when The Lion King first came out, I remember watching it with my roommates. Years later, as a mom, it continues to be a family favorite. My youngest and I even saw it on Broadway when she was little.
I’m so excited to share with you that The Lion King Blu-Ray is available today! The Circle of Life Edition has some great bonus content. It also comes with a Limited Edition Film Frame that led to a discussion on what film is in my house. These digital girls needed a lesson!
Special Features included in The Lion King The Circle of Life Edition:
- Includes Limited Edition Film Frames
- Sing-Along Version
- The Recording Sessions
- Visualizing A Villain
- Inside The Story Room
- Nathan And Matthew: The Extended Lion King Conversation
- Classic Bonus Preview Reel
- Deleted and Alternate Scenes
- Bloopers and Outtakes
Two of our absolute favorites from the Bonus Content are the addition of “The Morning Report” and the Sing A Long. Score!! The Morning Report is a song that was added for The Lion King on Broadway. Animators went back to the movie and added it. This is why I find Disney so amazing. Even after a movie is complete, they continue to add amazing features that audiences will love. There is also the Bloopers and Outtakes that my girls absolutely loved!
Scar is definitely a true villian in The Lion King. Did you see my post of the Deja View exhibit in The Walt Disney Family Museum? Andreas Deja is the animator who created Scar. You have to see his sketches!
I mentioned that in the Bonus Content, there is a Sing A Long for your favorite songs. Of course, we had to choose Hakuna Matata. It means No Worries for the rest of your days… Look at me, I’m jumping ahead. To celebrate the release of The Lion King Blu-Ray, we went to the Disney website for some inspiration and of course, we found it! Click on Timon and Pumba below to visit the site.
On the Disney website, we found a link for Printable Play Masks that were perfect for us to enjoy the bonus content of The Circle of Life Edition of The Lion King. We love the songs and I thought it would be a cute idea if we used them as we followed the sing a long of one of our favorite movies of all time. Click on the picture below for the link to all the masks.
We got into the Sing A Long spirit and enjoyed using our masks to become the characters and have a great family moment.
