So far for Senior Week, we’ve already well established that I’m a freak. Cold Han Solo, waiting in lines for hours, but this is where I go over the edge. The fact that, as a compulsive poster collector, I have more posters in my flat file than I have on my walls. So I figured it was time to give some of those posters…
Video editor Ryan Shukis has re-edited a bunch of Disney movies to create the trailers that would market Disney animated films to grown-ups. His latest is The Lion King, which takes on a much more heartwarming tone than in the original trailer.
Sure, the heroes in Disney movies are supposed to embody desirable traits: bravery, kindness, a sense of adventure. But sometimes, it's the villains who have the most to teach us about the world — in their successes and their failures, too.
If you don't count Pixar movies (and I don't), the best Disney movie as far as I'm concerned is The Lion King. It's not even close. But even though I've seen it so many times, there are many more fun facts that I had no idea about: like how Mufasa's roar was made from a bear, a tiger and a F-16. Here's more.

All was quiet on the arid plains of Africa when, suddenly, hundreds of animals rushed out of hiding and in a lumbering stampede ran towards Pride Rock, the highest point on the Serengeti.
Almost 20 years after The Lion King pounced into our hearts as a tear-jerking classic, Disney is bringing the pride back in an...interesting way. A new animated series aimed at preschoolers, Lion Guard, will air on Disney Junior and the Disney Channel starting November 2015. It will feature Kion, Simba's son,…
We're fans of Honest Trailers because they cut through all the bullshit from every Hollywood blockbuster there is. No movie is untouchable—including The Lion King. Like so many (all?) of Disney movies, it is so full of wrong. Their versions of the movie songs are especially hilarious. Enjoy!
This year marks that 20th anniversary of Disney's The Lion King. In celebration, Disney is rereleasing the Lion King soundtrack, which has 30 minutes of new music. That's right 30 minutes of new animal songs! The album can be preordered here.
Disney's Lion King movie remade entirely with BABY KITTIES. We did not think it was possible for animated cats to get any cuter. It is.

In addition to voicing Fred from Scooby Doo, Abu from Aladdin, Nibbler from Futurama, Megatron from Transformers, and about a zillion other animated characters, veteran voice actor Frank Welker provided sundry big cat snarls for The Lion King simply by yelling into a garbage can. And here's more of Welker on the job.

The days of heroes who talk normally are gone, thanks to the raspy Christian Bale. Check out Denzel Washington's take on a sore-throated hero, in this video peek at the making of Eli. Then watch him disarm 16 post-apocalyptic henchmen.
