The Lion King

IMDb Rating: 8.5

Rotten Tomatoes Rating: 93%

Disney had explored the talking animal film genre extensively by the early 1990s. However, The Lion King, released in 1994, gave this cliché a fresh and epic twist.

The original song and score by Elton John lifts the film to a different level.
