The Lion King
Not a lot of folks realize that The Lion King is actually based on William Shakespeare’s play Hamlet. The movie itself is one of Disney’s crowning achievements. Don't get us wrong... the original tale of the Prince of Denmark is one of the greatest ever, but the combination of that story with an unforgettable score and beautiful animation makes the whole greater than the sum of its parts.
