THE LION KING 1 1/2 (2004)

If you are going to watch a Lion King sequel, make it this one! This movie takes place during the time of the original Lion King, but from the point of view of Timon and Pumbaa. We learn what Timon and Pumbaa were up to before Simba came along and then watch what they were up to while Simba was off doing his thing. Unlike Beauty and the Beast: The Enchanted Christmas, this movie does it right. It doesn’t take anything away from the original and is just plain fun. We laughed quite a bit. I think this is one worth checking out that the whole family can enjoy.
