Disney released The Lion King 1 1/2 and The Lion King 2: Simba’s Pride on Special Edition Blu-ray Combo Pack in March! With all the lovable characters, you can revisit the story from Timon and Pumbaa point of view in The Lion King 1 1/2. Find out their origins and how they had gotten wrapped up into all the mess in the original The Lion King!
This is a great duo set, especially if you have the original. AND it features some fantastic special features! Let’s see what’s inside each of the movies!
Hilarity reigns in the motion picture comedy-adventure that takes you waaay back to the beginning before Simba’s tale began…now more fabulous than ever for the first time in a 2-disc Blu-ray Combo Pack!
From their uniquely hysterical perspective, Timon and his windy pal Pumbaa—the greatest unsung heroes of the savanna—reveal where they came from, how they helped Simba save the Serengeti and what really happened behind the scenes of The Lion King’s biggest events.
This essential chapter of The Lion King trilogy features your favorite characters voiced by the original cast (Nathan Lane, Matthew Broderick, Ernie Sabella plus Julie Kavner and Jerry Stiller) and music by Elton John and Tim Rice. You’ll feel the love for every outrageously funny moment.
