Do you think I need to introduce it to you? The Lion King is one of the greatest cinematographic success of history, and even the greatest success of the Disney Company. A masterpiece.
The Lion King is often seen as the best animated film ever made, and although the opinions may differ on this, it surely has great qualities.
The story of The Lion King is the story of a lion cub's journey to adulthood and acceptance of his royal destiny. Son of Mufasa, Simba witnesses the murder of his father by Scar, who drives him away from the kingdom. Lost in the jungle, he meets the famous Timon & Pumba, where he will learn "Hakuna Matata". But he will soon find out that he has a greater destiny than that...
The film has become a worldwide box office success, and even led recently to a Broadway musical. It was re-released in American theaters in 3D on September 16, 2011, again topping the box office.
Two big publications (People.com and ABC.net) posted interesting articles recently, to celebrate the 20 years of The Lion King.
They contacted me so I could post a link to their article, so here they are!

If you aren't using an ad blocker, you've surely noticed it by now : I am putting back ads on the site.
Wait! There's a good reason for this.
To put it simply, I am soon going to leave my current job, and I will be creating my own micro-company. (more on that later)
This means that I will have more time to dedicate to the site, so I'll be able to do much more than currently!
For example, I could add support for more languages, create a new and improved interface, correct all the remaining bugs etc... All the things I wanted to do but never could, because of time [...]
