The Lion King made a lot of money for Disney, not only as a movie but as a soundtrack as well. In fact, The Lion King soundtrack had the famous song, Circle of Life sung by Elton John on it. The Lion King did, however, make a lot of money in the box office. In fact, it became the second highest grossing film of the year for 1994. The only film to beat how much it made was Forrest Gump which is one of the best movies of all time. The total gross of how much The Lion King made over the course of its lifetime was 329 million dollars. Now that is a lot of money to be made by a cartoon film. However, when you watch this great movie you are going to forget that you are watching a cartoon. This is because the movie is very well put together, and everyone in your family is going to love watching it. This movie is one that you are going to want to run out to the store and buy right away. However, it may not be as easy to go out and get as you may think. This is because Disney has so many movies that they have made, that they cannot sell them all at the same time. Thus, only every once in a while will The Lion King be on sale to buy at the store. If this is a movie that you want, you have to go online and look for it. This could be your only chance to own this great movie.
When The Lion King first came out, I had the joy of going to the movie theater and watching it on the big screen. This is a moment that I will never forget as long as I live. However, if you did not get a chance to see it you are going to have to get it on video. This is because The Lion King is one of those movies that you are going to need to see. This is one of those movies that you are going to want to add to your DVD collection. So if you have not had a chance to see this one of a kind film, I think you should waste no more time in going to go pick it up.
