Hakuna Matata: The Lion King is Now On DVD and Blu-Ray

1 Comment 05 October 2011


Yesterday I was in Costco and as I was perusing the vitamin section I hear the strains of a song I know, all too well, coming from the electronics section —

Everybody looooook left!

Everybody loooooooook right!

Everywhere you looooook I’mmmmmmm

…standing in the spoootttttliiiiiight!

And right there, in the middle of Costco, I surprised myself and everyone around me by practically shouting Zazu’s line —


Which led to this tweet.

Oh yeah. I’m totally that girl.

The Lion King has always been my ultimate favorite Disney movie. I knew every line, every song, every word to this movie (and apparently still do). I even had the soundtrack. It didn’t hurt, of course, that I was 11 years old with a huge crush on Jonathan Taylor Thomas (who is the voice of Simbaa).

Then of course there is the very cool connection of my cousin, Ernie Sabella, being the voice of Pumbaa in the movie. Not that he knows me, or anything, but related we are. And at 11 years old? That made me like, totally cool.

Of course, The Lion King has just been re-released in theaters in 3D, but as of yesterday, October 4th, it’s also available as The Lion King: Diamond Edition on Blu-ray 3D & Blu-ray Hi-Def Combo Pack. You can save $5 on your purchase with the coupon below (click the image to be redirected)!

And of course, the folks at Disney always have such fun items to go along with each release – I love these Fun Food Ideas (featuring Pumbaa, of course!).

And these coloring and activity pages (which are always such a hit in our house!).

So, if you’re looking for something fun to do this weekend with your kids, try out some of these fun food ideas and then pull up a tub of popcorn and pop in The Lion King. I know we will be. (And I’ll try not to annoy the kiddos by singing every single line, but hey – I’m not making any promises.)
