Unpopular opinion I know. But........I guess the lesson here is: if you did something bad in the past, better hope it comes back to bite you in the butt and you can find a loophole that it isn't your fault anymore! This movie is trying to be something it's not: a coming of age story. It's not that different from Cinderella or Aladdin, just a lot more pretentious.
I saw this about 20 years ago, and it was one of the best memories I had of seeing a film in a cinema. I remember crying so much over this one :D So I revisited this, and I can definitely see why I liked it so much, all those years ago. Sadly, not enough to keep me interested these days..
Yes I had a childhood... but until a few days ago I had never this film. My parents were so smart that they bought the VHS of the Lion King 2 without me ever seeing the original story. Anyway, it's cute and lovely... Pumbaa, Scar and the hyenas are all so awesome.
A great film in which the soundtrack stands out (Academy Awards were right this time). Just a little note to the violence: a story to children with two brothers, a uncle and nephew solving problems only by fighting (and this one is considerable in the film), isn't really the best example.
