I'm sure everyone has a movie or song or tv show that they loved growing up.
Mine is Lion King. I haven't seen it for years. And all the sites that stream videos either don't have it (Netflix) or require you buy it (amazon prime ?). So when I saw that my store had a few copies I got it.
Tonight I will be spending watching my favorite Disney movie. :bounce: :P

The Lion King. Released in 1994.

Enjoyed by Dragon Wings while she was growing up. Enjoyed by me while I was working on my college degree.

And that's another entry for "When Random Comments Make You Feel Old", thank you for playing!

Love love love Lion King.

Came out during a very tough time in my life. Helped me to learn that bad people get thiers in the end and I need to keep on being good.

I have the soundtrack, the swahili soundtrack and saw the broadway musical. Still get goosebumps during Circle of Life.

I had one of those nostalgia moments myself on Thanksgiving. XD After seeing the rather-terrible preview of the Broadway version of Newsies during the Macy's Parade, I decided to watch the movie. Before that, I hadn't watched the movie in years. I can still quote the entire movie word for word and still know all the songs. XD

*joins Peds in the cane shaking* I graduated from high school in 1994

I love Lion King. The hubby and I had a hard time not signing out aloud when we went and saw it in the theater this year (the re release)

So jealous! I saw advertisements for it and wanted to go but didn't get the chance.

And yeah, I'm with you Kanalah, Circle of Life is awe inspiring.

I believe I was 6 in 1994. :devil:

Hmm. I always loved Beauty and the Beast, and The Aristocats. The Lion King was good, but too sad! Although Scar doing "Be Prepared" is delightfully evil. :D

I remember when "The Lion King" came out on video.

I was working at one of the local video stores and had to piece together the giant cardboard advertisement display for it.

I was 25.

I saw the Blu-ray version of 2001: A Space Oddessy for sale at my local Hell-Mart.

popped that in my player and drifted back to when I saw it at the theater in the 1960's.

I saw that movie in English class, maybe, sophomore years. Idk. Definitely one of those classics I need to watch (or rewatch).

I was watching Lion King with my 4 year old daughter... so there :p

I will admit to being dragged out of bed when I was 5 years old to watch the live pics from Apollo 11!

Now, where did I put my zimmer frame? :lol:

LOVE the Lion King! I was raised on Disney movies though really. My nostalgic thing of late, though, seems to be Saved by the Bell. I mean, the original one, with Zack, Kelly, Slater, Screech, Jessie and Lisa. That show made up a good part of my late childhood/early teen years, and I still enjoy it to this day, at thirty years old!

My youngest child as born in 1994. Lion King was the first indoor sit down movie I took my oldest to and she was 4.

hMy memory is an old one (Yes I am pushing 50). My movie quote is "If you can't say something nice, don't say nothing at all" It is from the first movie my parents took me to see. Can anyone quess what movie.

I just started high school when Lion King came out. My cousins made me take them to see it when I babysat them. I think I have seen it at least 20 times.
