We are Disney fanatics in my house and love to watch the classics as a family. Let's face it, Disney movies make the best family movie nights, in my opinion! And The Lion King is a good old family favorite. Aside from the sad moments it's a fun film filled with good music, lovable characters, humor, romance, and action. And while many immediately think of Simba when they think Lion King.... I think Pumbaa!
Yes, it's true. I have a soft spot for the warthog and his pal, Timon. So I was so excited to get the chance to check out The Lion King 1 1/2 because these two really are the stars of the show. These two are true characters with real personalities. They are voiced by the original cast and the film is full of appearances by other original favorites.
In this film Timon and Pumbaa take center stage and let you know the real story. From before Simba walked into their lives through helping him save the Serengeti. You get a behind the scenes look through their eyes. Let's just say it's a much more comical point of view.
This quickly became a family favorite and we watched it twice in one weekend! The laughs just keep coming with this dynamic duo. Check it out today! And don't forget to check out the bonus features. Our favorite was Timon and Pumbaa's Vacation Safari. In this feature Timon and Pumbaa watch home movies of their friends at Disney's Animal Kingdom. And since we were just there it was even more exciting. Oh, and look who we met while visiting Animal Kingdom!
