The Lion King : 5 of 5
Of course, The Lion King is one of the best animated films ever made, so all I need to review is it's presentation on DVD! This is the third Platinum Edition DVD set, and even though I enjoyed the bonus materials of the last two (Snow White and Beauty and the Beast) more, this set still contains some really interesting and fun stuff to watch. I enjoyed each of the mini-documentaries covering different aspects of production, music, and even the Broadway show, and some of the games were fun (but once is enough). The new animation for Morning Report is pretty good, but it's so short that it doesn't seem like much of a big deal. The best features are the special home theater sound mix, which sounds incredible, and the excellent commentary, which features Don Hahn (whom I really admire) and the directors discussing tons of details as they happen in the film (like all commentaries should!). The movie itself looks wonderful, and I plan on watching it more than a few times!
