With the Voice talents of
Jeremy Irons as Scar
Matthew Broderick as Adult Simba
James Earl Jones as Mufasa 
Nathan Lane as Timon
Whoopi Goldberg as Shenzi



and my personal fav....Rowan Atkinson as Zazu,
it's no wonder why the Lion King is still the highest grossing traditionally animated film so far!
 
Not only is this film a beautiful piece of art in motion with the gorgeous background of Africa and the skillful way the animators captured the graceful movements of the lions, but the musical score composed by Hans Zimmer adds that extra theatrical perfection! (The Lion King is a Twist on Hamlet!)
 
I remember watching this movie in theaters with my then 5 year old sister and being glued to the screen...and nothing has changed! The songs are great and memorable...in fact I still have hakuna matata still stuck in my head
And the characters are lovable and entertaining!
 
A great Disney Classic...yes, I think it's considered a classic...sigh...I'm old... to add to your collection!
