The Live Action remakes that Disney have been making in recent years have been a huge hit in our house, and The Lion King was no different. Now this fantastic family film is out to watch at home, in digital or blu-ray / dvd so I’m sure we will be watching it again and again! If you did not see it in the cinema, then it’s definitely worth picking up a copy so that you don’t miss out.

In The Lion King, pioneering filmmaking techniques bring treasured characters to life in a whole new way. Simba idolizes his father, King Mufasa, and takes to heart his own royal destiny. But not everyone in the kingdom celebrates the new cub’s arrival. Scar, Mufasa’s brother — and former heir to the throne — has plans of his own. The battle for Pride Rock is ravaged with betrayal, tragedy and drama, ultimately resulting in Simba’s exile. With help from a curious pair of newfound friends, Simba will have to figure out how to grow up and take back what is rightfully his. The all-star cast includes Donald Glover as Simba, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter as Nala, James Earl Jones as Mufasa, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Scar, Seth Rogen as Pumbaa and Billy Eichner as Timon.

To celebrate the home release of The Lion King, we have some fun activity sheets to share with you. My daughter and I had lots of fun colouring and doing these activities together before watching the movie (use the link at the bottom of this post to download the files)
