The Lion King: Special Edition

5

Fresh from its IMAX re-release, Disney's 1994 classic returns in a two-disc set to restate its claim as one of the finest animated features ever made. Good timing, too, given Finding Nemo's just outstripped its record box-office take.

Part Bambi, part Hamlet, The Lion King follows furball Simba as he flees into exile after being blamed for his dad's death. What follows is an age-old tale of betrayal, heredity and redemption, spiced up by great songs, jaw-crashing animation and a farting warthog. What more do you need?
