The Lion King in real life

Everybody knows my favorite Disney movie is The Lion King. And why shouldn’t it be, since it’s based on Hamlet, has everything a good story should have (an awesome story arc, romance, fights, and the fulfillment of the main character’s destiny), and features my favorite and most awesome animal in the whole wide world?

So when I saw these pictures featuring the real-life versions of Simba and company, I couldn’t help but post about it. The idea of nature mimicking the film is too exciting to not blog about.

So here it is, four awesome pictures of the Lion King in real life:

The Lion King forever lives on in our hearts ❤
