I just spent my morning staring at my phone as I watched a trailer for The Lion King.
As I watched, I felt a familiar tug in my gut as my brain connected the two words that I’ve heard so many times over the past week: “buy it.”
The movie is coming out in a couple of weeks, and this time it’s being released in theaters on May 25.
It was the first time I saw the trailer, and as I turned the screen toward the movie’s opening, I realized the trailer had been floating above my head all morning.
As it turned out, the movie had already been screened at the Magic Kingdom for weeks, so I could already tell it was going to be a hit.
I started scrolling through the trailers I’d seen and decided that I’d be buying it.
I’d already seen it a couple times, and each time I’d been disappointed.
I thought to myself, “It’s a movie that can be bought, right?”
So, I clicked the buy button on my phone.
That’s how I ended up spending about a day and a half watching the movie, which I’ll admit, was a bit much.
But, as I sat there and watched the movie on a loop, I started to understand why the critics and the moviegoers loved it so much.
It had everything you’d want from a Disney movie: characters, action, music, a happy ending, and, of course, a heartwarming story.
I didn’t know what to expect.
But I soon realized that this movie is actually an adaptation of the original story by Oscar-nominated Disney animator Glen Keane, which is a masterpiece of storytelling and storytelling that I’ll never forget.
In Keane’s story, a group of animals is trapped in a box for centuries in a mysterious forest.
The animals eventually escape when a mysterious tree suddenly appears and brings the animals back to life.
Keane also wrote the story of the Mouseketeers, which includes characters like Snow White and Prince Charming, and he died in 2013.
When I watched the trailer for the film, I knew it was a movie for me, and it made me want to spend my weekend at the parks and buy it, too.
I’ve watched the original version of The Lion Kingdom about 20 times, so it was easy to see how much of the story was already set in stone, and I wasn’t going to need to look at the movie any more.
The movie itself, however, had a lot of new tricks up its sleeve.
First, it was released with a new soundtrack.
The original soundtrack was written and recorded by legendary producer and songwriter Tom Stoppard, and the film has also had the help of new composer Josh Groban, who is known for his work on The Lion Guard, Cinderella, and Beauty and the Beast.
And lastly, there were new visuals and sound effects.
As the trailer showed, the animation had been painstakingly re-done to look and feel like the original Disney animated film.
There were no new songs or sound effects, but I still found myself laughing.
As far as sound effects go, The Lion Queen and Beauty And The Beast both have very impressive soundtracks.
The Lion Prince and King Triton are both also well-known for their music, but Beauty And the Beast’s soundtrack is considered to be one of the best ever recorded.
I was definitely in for a treat as I looked at the trailer and started watching the film.
The next time I did, I would be prepared for anything.
The movie also features a special scene where the group is brought together and they have a long-awaited reunion.
The music was also improved, and there were even a few new scenes added.
I really enjoyed watching The Lion KING, and now that I’m a Disney fan, I plan on purchasing it as soon as it’s available for pre-order.
For the record, I am still waiting on my ticket for The Royal Tenenbaums.
Watching the trailer on my iPhone is a great way to get a quick glimpse into what’s coming.
But if you can’t be bothered to watch the movie in person, I think the best way to experience The LionKing is to check out the trailer online and then scroll down to the bottom of this article.
I think The LionKING will become my new favorite Disney movie.
