    The cinematography was apt.
    It was a beautiful Art.

    In the circle of life we are all connected.

    1. Yeah!..Mufasa to Young Simba"In the circle of life we are all connected".

      According to Mufasa " Everything you see exists together in a delicate balance. As king, you need to understand that balance and respect all the creatures, from the crawling ant to the leaping antelope".

  9. The Lion King in 3D,the characters look incredible,but some are soulless and lack emotional weight.The visuals are excellent .The songs and story are fun and amazing,this is the kind of movie that the entire family can enjoy.

  10. Nollywood aspire and rise from mediocrity. *I know we have a few gems in the industry*
