Lion King

The Scoop

Parents who grew up in the ‘90s will be chomping at the bit to take their kids to the new live-action version of The Lion King. If you were a child of the ‘90s, you’re probably looking forward to the iconic songs such as “Hakuna Matata.” We hope you won’t be looking for the song “Be Prepared,” though, as it’s been dropped. The good news is, a new song written by Elton John, Tim Rice, and Beyonce will be featured. Other than these small changes, the movie is supposed to stay pretty true to the 1994 animated version. It will, however, have some necessary adjustments to match the true African Savanna and its wildlife.


Our Take on The Lion King

We expect this to be a solid family movie. But with the real African beasts in action, parts of this movie may be a little intense for sensitive kids. If leaders plan to watch this movie with their pre-teens, we’d suggest giving parents a heads-up first just to make sure they know about the violent and frightening scenes.
