The ever-popular sequel to the original Lion King. Fun-filled adventure that will please the young and the young at heart.
The Lion King 1½ is an ingenious sequel that retells the original film's story from the perspective of best pals Timon the meerkat voiced by Nathan Lane and Pumbaa the warthog Ernie Sabella. Anyone who has wondered how this odd couple met will find out here, beginning with Timon's flight from home following disgrace and his chance encounter with the sweet but lonely Pumbaa. With the arrival of young Simba Shaun Flemming, The Lion King's familiar tale is reborn via a fresh angle, fleshed out by returning characters Rafiki the wise monkey Robert Guillaume, Shenzi Whoopi Goldberg, and Simba's love interest, Nala Moira Kelly. While the retooled narrative proves a novel experience, The Lion King 1½ is really a vehicle for voice actors Lane and Sabella, whose comic performances are shamelessly, broadly funny. Matthew Broderick, Julie Kavner, and Jerry Stiller are also in the vocal cast. --Tom Keogh
