I picked up my copy last night and watched the first half of the movie before bed (man how I love that movie). Anyway...I was very surprised at how seamless "Morning Report" fit into the film...BUT...I felt it was unecessary. I went back and watched the original sequence and remembered how cute it was (with Mufasa spinning his finger around to tell Zazu to turn around). The song was not needed at all. It was well done, and did fit the tone of the film well, but why bother? There was nothing wrong with it before. Also, for some reason Jeff Bennett's voice gets on my nerves. I guess maybe it's because he does a lousy British acccent (he does Professor Porter in Legend of Tarzan too...badly). This brings me to another topic...slightly OFF topic, but related to voice actors. Why do they have the "new" character voices on the same darn movie? The first thing we hear on the Lion King DVD is the Jeff Bennett Zazu...and then when you play the film it's Rowan Atkinson...I HATE that. Snow White did it too with the Magic Mirror. Sleeping Beauty too, with the fake Merryweather...It's not so bad when the new voice is on a completely unrelated film, but when it's on the DVD of the movie the original came from, don't people notice??? Anyway...I'll shut up now. I'm curious what others thought of the new DVD. P.S. Bill, if you have the CAV laserdisc...keep it and don't get the DVD.
