It's hard to believe that the 20th anniversary of Disney's The Lion King just passed. My wife and I were in college still, and having had our love for Disney movies rekindled with Aladdin, we couldn't wait to see film. The movie did not disappoint.
Not only did we embrace this film, but also took the plunge into all the marketing gimmicks that go along with a Disney release. We had the soundtrack, to which my wife and her friend sang along with at the top of their lungs while jumping on the bed. I was not impressed. I bought her a plush Simba that purred and I had a plush Pumba. What 21 year old wouldn't, right? I had ordered a God awful (in hindsight) Lion King sweatshirt from the Disney catalog. It had all the characters on front. I wish I could find a pic to share, but I can't and that shirt is long gone, surprisingly...
