You won’t want to miss the re-release of The Lion King now in 3D at your local movie theater. This limited 2 week engagement, which starts September 16leads up to the re-release of The Lion King from the Disney vault into DVD on October 4.
I’ve told you how much I LOVED the re-release of The Lion King 3D here on MomStart in my posts about meeting the people involved in The Lion King and how The Lion King became 3D. I can’t encourage you enough to go see it on the big screen with your children. Parent’s, you’ll fall in love with it all over again, I promise; your children will simply fall in love with the magic of The Lion King in only the ways a theater can. There is just something about a movie in the theaters, right?
Well, the next best thing to seeing The Lion King 3D in the theater is taking the movie home. Until you can take purchase your own 3D or BluRay on October 4, think about these little magical movie treats from the Disney Store:
Green your routine with a young Simba and young Nala shopping tote for only $2.50. If you’re at the Disney Store load it with your other favorite Lion King must haves, then reuse it over and over again for grocery shopping, wrapping a birthday present, storing your child’s toys, a quick grab-and-go playground bag
Get your 3-inch collectable Vinylmation Lion King tradeables for only $9.95. You’ll fall in love with these Mickey Mouse shaped figures. You don’t know what you have until you’ve made the purchase, so complete your set by trading your duplicated. I wonder who the mystery character is; my guess is either Ed or Mufasa. My 4YO has the Rafiki; he loves it, though the staff is removable and he tends to misplace it.
Find your child’s favorite Lion King characters for them to snuggle with at night. You can choose from different price ranges, from $8.50 to $59.50. My 2YO loves to snuggle his young Simba “mini bean bag” plush, which is $8.50, however you can purchase two for $15 OR you can get the mini plush series of young Simba, young Nala, hula Timon, and luau-pig Pumbaa for only $30!
Bring home the Best of the Lion King on CD for only $9.00 and it’s eligible for FREE super saver shipping if you aren’t subscribed to Amazon Prime. Best of the Lion King includes your favorite songs from The Lion King, The Lion King 1½, The Lion King 2 Simba’s Pride, Rhythm of the Pride Lands, and The Lion King on Broadway. I like having this new CD in our library for some new kid-tunes! Best of all, with Amazon, you can go green and purchase the MP3 of each song for only 99₵ which is $11.88 for the whole CD!
