As I child I remember watching The Lion King on video and being completely overwhelmed by the enormity of it all; the sight of all those animals, the music, we just loved it. Years later I was lucky enough to attend the musical The Lion King in theater, although I was not a child anymore the story was not less impressive, in fact, I was even more in love with it and I still get goosebumps listening to the recording of the musical.

If you missed out on seeing The Lion King back then (or you just want to relive the experience) or if you would love to share this beautiful story with your children you are in luck because yesterday The Lion King has been released on Disney 3D and Blu-ray High Definition, available for a limited time only. The award winning story has been restored and remastered for an even more amazing movie experience the whole family can enjoy. My kids immediately fell in love with the songs and Hakuna Matata is their new favourite slogan.

The Lion King tells the tale of lion cub Simba, destined to take over from his father as king, who runs away from his Uncle Scar and his home with the intention of never coming back. But luckily he meets the hilarious Timon and Pumbaa and after going on plenty of fun and exciting adventures with his new friends he returns to take his rightful place, after all, he is the real king of the jungle.
