The Lion King 1 1/2


Hilarity reigns in this all-new motion picture starring Timon and his windy pal Pumbaa – the greatest unsung heroes of the savanna! Featuring the original voice cast and music by Elton John and Tim Rice, “The Lion King 1 1/2” takes you waaaay back to the beginning before Simba’s tale began…and beyond!

In this all new comedy adventure, Timon and Pumbaa reveal where they came from, how they met and why some of the greatest moments in “The Lion King” look a little different from their perspective. Tag along as they search for their dream home, raise a rambunctious young lion cub and help Simba save the Serengeti. It’s a whole new story that includes glimpses of some of the events you’ll remember from “The Lion King.” The original voice cast return for this hysterical musical tale. With all your favorite characters, the music you love and more, get ready for some king-sized fun with Timon and Pumbaa!

Dove Review

This was a great continuation of the original through the eyes of Timon and Pumbaa. I always loved the original, and a lot of times the sequels are not as good as the originals, but “The Lion King 1 1/2” was put together beautifully. With the same voice cast, it made it even better. This Disney DVD pack has many bonus features including games and great documentaries that let you dive even deeper into “The Lion King.”
