Disney’s The Lion King finally gets released on DVD on 31/10/03. In my opinion this was the peak of the modern era of Disney traditional animated films, even with the songs. It slowly went down hill from here. The DVD itself is a special edition and comes with an extra disk. The box set includes the following special features…

Audio commentary from the film’s producer and directors Rob Minkoff & Roger Allers
Deleted scenes
‘Making Of’ featurette
Abandoned concepts
Virtual safari
‘Personality Profile’ game
Interactive menu
Scene access

Gasp! “Interactive menu” and “scene access!” Surely not. Those really are special features. I wonder when they’ll stop listing scene access as a special feature. It’s like pointing out that you can skip tracks on a CD or fast forward through a video.

You’ll also be glad to know that they’ve added in another song. Oooh great! Sigh.
