For a very long time, the fans of Lion King were waiting for a long time to see the realistic CG remake of the movie. The movie also featured an original song by Beyonce. If you couldn’t watch the movie in theatres or if you want to go enjoy the movie at home then this is your chance as the Blu-ray and Digital release of the movie is very close. Disney has set the Blu-ray and Digital dates and there will also be bonus content.
The Lion King DVD, BluRay Release—
The Lion King DVD and Blu-ray is going to be released on October 22, 2019. It will be available on Digital HD from Amazon Video and iTunes on October 11, 2019.
It was announced that there would be different bonus features for both Digital as well as physical releases. The Digital consumers will receive an exclusive extra that “playfully conveys the importance of the dung beetle both in the film and the African savanna.” The customers who pre-purchase on Digital will have access to “Perfecting the Pride,” which is a feature following the filmmakers on a research trip in Africa.
In both the versions, there are bonus features that dive into the film’s creation and there are also music videos for the original songs by Elton John and Beyonce.
The story of the movie follows a lion cub, Simba. Simba idolizes his father, King Mufasa. However, not everyone is happy about Mufasa’s rule in the Savannahs. Scar, who is Mufasa’s brother and former heir to the throne has made his mind up and believes that he could make the kingdom his own. The battle for Pride Rock is filled to the brim with betrayal, drama and tragedy. Ultimately, the battle results in Simba being exiled. So, Simba must grow up with his new friends and take back his throne.
