The Lion King

 (1994)

The Lion King Blu-ray delivers truly amazing video and audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

A young lion cub named Simba just can't wait to be king. But the sudden death of his father, Mufasa, and the treacherous actions of his Uncle Scar lead Simba into exile and ultimately on a hero's journey of self-discovery. Adopting the "hakuna matata" philosophy of his comical jungle guardians — a warthog and a meerkat (Pumbaa and Timon) — Simba eventually comes to terms with his destiny and returns home to Pride Rock to help put things right.

For more about The Lion King and the The Lion King Blu-ray release, see the The Lion King Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.5 out of 5.

Starring: Matthew Broderick, Jeremy Irons, Rowan Atkinson, Whoopi Goldberg, James Earl Jones, Nathan Lane
Directors: Roger Allers, Rob Minkoff

The Lion King Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

Hakuna matata indeed. Fans needn't bother with worrying about Disney's devotion to The Lion King; the studio's 1080p/AVC-encoded video transfer is nothing short of spectacular. Colors are bold and brilliant, black levels are deep and inky, contrast is impeccable and when the sun peeks over the horizon... well, you had better hold on to your breath. Even then, prepare to have it taken away. Again and again and again. The playful palette of "I Just Can't Wait to Be King," the terrifying earthtones kicked up in a stampede, Simba's misadventures with Timon and Pumbaa beneath the lush and lovely canopy of the jungle, Simba and Nala's evening walk, his heavenly vision of his father, even the bleak, smoky depths of the Elephant Graveyard and the sickly greens and yellows that accompany Scar's rise to power; it all looks magnificent. Detail and clarity are exceptional as well, be it by way of the animators' crisp, fluid lineart, the background painters' brush-stroked skies and plains, the CG artisan's perfectly rendered contributions, or the slightest imperfection in the hand-drawn animation. Best of all, Disney's encode is immaculate. Artifacting and aliasing are nowhere to be found, banding is kept to the barest of minimums, and the print is nearly spotless. (Eagle-eyed videophiles will spot a few specks of dirt/specks scattered throughout, but every instance I noticed was negligible and appeared to be present in the original source.) Kudos to Disney. The studio continues to put out the best animated presentations on the market, even when it comes to seventeen-year-old catalog animation.


The Lion King Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

It isn't very often that an animated film's lossless mix gives me chills, but The Lion King's DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 surround track did just that, and did so more than I care to admit. Simba's presentation to an ecstatic kingdom, the thunder-rumble of Mufasa's voice (not to mention his hair-raising roar), the choir of insects buzzing across the plains, the energy of the film's songs, the terrifying chaos of the wildebeest stampede, the chanting voices that accompany Hans Zimmer's score, the acoustics of Scar's cave, Simba's struggles and battles... I can't imagine a single second sounding any better than it does here. Dialogue is clean, clear and weighty, roars ripple across the soundfield, rear speaker activity is aggressive, directional effects are oh-so-convincing, pans are extraordinary, and dynamics are pitch-perfect. Just close your eyes and listen as the wildebeest careen through the canyon, as the hyenas cackle in the caverns, as Simba's paws crish crush through the underbrush, as Mufasa claws his way up the cliff face toward his treacherous brother, as Zimmer's music rises and soars over the Pride Lands. I thought Disney's transfer was breathtaking, but its lossless track requires an entirely different grading scale. As catalog animation AV presentations go, The Lion King just can't wait to be king.
