Dans la savane africaine, le lion Mafusa, roi des animaux, et Sarabi donnent naissance à Simba. L’héritier pourrait grandir en paix s’il n’y avait Scar, le frère de Mafusa, dont la soif de pouvoir va le pousser à commettre l’irréparable… Pour le grand plaisir des fans de dessins animés, Le Roi Lion, le plus grand succès des studios Disney (sur le fil, semble-t-il, avec l’aquatique Nemo) sort enfin dans une édition exclusive double DVD. Pour l’occasion, Disney a fait les choses en grand et il y a largement de quoi contenter le chaland : pas moins de deux versions du film, un karaoké, des jeux, des scènes coupées et une suite de documentaires savoureux, appelés “safaris”, sur les différents stades de fabrication du film. Un DVD plein de surprises et de magie. Un vrai bonheur au niveau de l’animation. Un cadeau idéal ! —George Maubeuge

Editorial Review

How good-looking is the restoration of Disney's popular animated film? Take a look at the serviceable but dull film clips incorporated in the plethora of extras and compare them to the vivid gorgeousness of the film presentation. This “special edition” also adds a 90-second song (“Morning Report”) that originated in the lavish stage musical. To Disney's credit, the original theatrical version is also included, both restored and featuring two 5.1 soundtracks: Dolby Digital and a new Disney Enhanced Home Theater Mix, which does sound brighter. As with the Disney Platinum line, everything is thrown into the discs, except an outsider's voice (the rah-rahs of Disney grow tiresome at times). The excellent commentary from the directors and producer, originally on the laser disc, is hidden under the audio set-up menu.

The second disc is organized by 20-minute-ish “journeys” tackling the elements of story, music, et cetera, including good background on the awkward Shakespearean origins at Disney where it was referred as “Bamlet.” The most interesting journey follows the landmark stage production, and the kids should be transfixed by shots of the real African wildlife in the animal journey. Three deleted segments are real curios, including an opening lyric for “Hakuna Matata.” Most set-top DVD games are usually pretty thin (DVD-ROM is where it's at), but the Safari game is an exception–the kids should love the roaring animals (in 5.1 Surround, no less). One serious demerit goes to the needless and complicated second navigation system that is listed by continent, but just shows the same features reordered. –Doug Thomas
