From the magnificent music opening over breathtaking African plains to its electrifying finale, The Lion King is a triumph. Disney's masterpiece tells the incredible story of the love between a proud lion ruler, Mufasa and his son Simba - a naïve and curious cub who must struggle to find his place in nature's great "circle of life". Befriended by a host of warmhearted characters, Simba experiences some of life's most glorious moments and toughest challenges. But before he can take his rightful place as ruler of the Pride Lands, Simba must overcome great fear and adversity - climaxed by a blazing battle with his evil and greedy uncle, Scar. This 1995 Oscar winner features music (including Best Original Song) by Elton John and lyricist Tim Rice and score by Hans Zimmer. This Disney epic reigns supreme with warmth and emotion, rip-roaring humour and stunning animation.

This bluray release of the lion king is presented really well. The main menu was specifically designed for the bluray release, with a nice menu that jumps between the locations found in the movie and has nice music playing. The last time I watched the lion king was on VHS. Watching closely on the bluray, the quality is so good and the video bit rate is so high that when you look closely, you can see the actual frame by frame animation as the drawings move from one frame to another. When you pause on some objects, you can see the actual hand drawing/sketch lines, which is amazing ! The quality is amazing. Further, when you pause the movie, there is a small display in the bottom left corner of the screen where you can easily select which chapter you want to skip to.

This is a beautiful cut of the film and comes with many lovely extra features, but I do note that it doesn't say "Diamond Edition" anywhere on the package.
