I so wanted to be able to say that this movie was so good, unlike most disney sequels. This movie is rather average, EXCEPT if you've seen the original Lion King.
This is a companion to The Lion King, not a sequel. It mocks the original movie, even mocking movies in general. This movie is about Timon and Pumbaa watching a movie. They keep pressing the pause button on the remote at really inappropriate places.
I was disappointed that there wasn't more footage from the original movie. Or even new footage of the original scenes from different angles. Too often it only catches the beginning or end of a scene.
If you haven't seen The Lion King, don't bother with this movie UNTIL you have seen it. Then by all means, watch this one. I give this four stars but I have a funny feeling that might be too lenient.
