The Lion King Live Action Blu-ray Bonus Features


live action lion king bonus features

When the live action re-imagining of The Lion King hit theaters, you know I took my daughters to see it. And now it is available to take home! My girls have been BEGGING for it because they wanted to watch it with my husband, who was unable to go with us. While it wasn’t my favorite live action remake of the year (that goes to Aladdin), I did enjoy it. The Lion King Blu-ray is filled with amazing bonus features, that I am so glad I got to check out!

If you haven’t read my live action The Lion King review yet, be sure to check it out. This movie is worth a watch (especially at home), and I know my daughters will play it over and over. They love the songs and seeing how real the animals look.
