The Walt Disney Signature Edition Blu-ray release of The Lion King is this week (Aug. 29). In case you needed any more convincing, Walt Disney Home Entertainment has released more snippets from the fun and fascinating bonus features. These clips take fans on a virtual visit to the recording booth during production of the 1994 animated classic for a look at the making of the film’s acclaimed songs and scenes.
In the clips, see Nathan Lane (voice of Timon) in action and hear his recollections of performances breakthroughs; check out footage of Whoopi Goldberg, Cheech Marin, Jim Cummings (the hyenas), Jeremy Irons (Scar) and James Earl Jones (Mufasa) recording “Be Prepared;” and more delightful nibbles of ’90s voice acting history.
The Lion King: Walt Disney Signature Edition is also available now on Digital HD.
