  • Hi, just thought I'd create an interesting thing for discussion.

    When was your first time seeing the Lion King and do you have any nostalgic feelings towards it?

    I saw it when I was 3 or 4 years old (so young!) and used to have it as a taped recording on VHS. (Now I have it on DVD)

    My cousin is also a big fan and saw it when his father passed away so the film gave him some closure

    • I’m pretty sure I first saw it when I was around 7 years old, but I already knew the story back and forth just from reading it in those gigantic Disney Story Collection books. XD And I saw the sequels shortly after. I’m not sure when it became my favorite franchise, though. I think I’ve just always liked lions, TLK or not. ;D

    • I don't remember when I first saw The Lion King. My parents were strange and mostly bought us crappy Disney sequels, so I saw Simba's Pride from a very young age. I don't think I actually saw the first one until a few years later.

    • Same here. I saw the sequal a few years later when I was about...8 or 9

    • The weird thing is because I was only 3, when Mufasa died, I asked "Mama is he diead?" and she said yes. And I was just like "Oh." At that young age I did know what dying meant, but I was too young to understand that it's supposed to be a sad thing. So I never cried like most people do when watching it. But the  background music of the emotional scene still strikes me

    • Same. When I was younger, Mufasa's death scene didn't really bother me at all, but now I almost tear up every time I watch it.

    • I don't remember watching The Lion King for the first time, but I had loved it by the time Simba's Pride was released. So, I most likely first watched it on VHS in 1995.

    • I was four years old as well when I first saw the Lion King and bought it. I'm a big fan of this movie I'm quite willing to buy Lion King merchandise even though I'm now 29.
