Rating: Pretty good!
Lion King 1 1/2 is a prequel-sequel to the original Lion King. It includes the original cast of Nathan Lane (The Birdcage) as Timon, Ernie Sabella (The Lion King), and Matthew Broderick (Ferris Bueller’s Day Off)!
The story was pretty decent! It shows how Timon and Pumbaa met each other and how they were pretty much in the first Lion King movie the whole time! However, there are some BIG plot holes in this movie, like how Timon and Pumbaa distract the hyenas during the final fight with Scar and Simba which would prevent them from hearing Scar blame everything on the hyenas.
The songs are just as catchy as the original movie, but most of the songs in this movie are just reused since it is technically the first Lion King all over again. My favorite from the new songs is “That’s All I Need” sung by Timon.
Overall, The Lion King 1 1/2 is a pretty good movie and gives the two best characters from the original movie the screen time they deserved! This is one of the good Direct-To-DVD Disney movies, which is really rare, so I definitely recommend watching this!
