it was ok.,
This review is from: The Lion King 3: Hakuna Matata [DVD] (DVD)
This film takes you back before the beginning of The Lion King, and neatly fills in all the gaps that you never realised existed.
Timon is the "Flik" (A Bug's Life) of his community, clumsy and discontent with his lot in life, and sets off to find his dream home, where he can fit in. He meets up with Pumba, and the friendship begins.
The animation is great, the original cast give an excellent performance, the jokes and puns are non-stop, and there are new songs that are very catchy.
There's a funny karaoke sing a-long where you need to keep an eye on the insect that's setting the timing, and somehow excerpts from "Fiddler on the Roof", "The Good The Bad and the Ugly" and other themes fit right in.
Brace yourself for the finale, that involves synchronised swimming, para gliding, and a huge cast of characters.
Its 77 mions long - kids kinda lost interest towards the end.
This is one of Disney's better sequels. It isn't a "Toy Story 2", but a far better movie than many other direct-to-video disasters we've seen. It's laugh out loud funny, but children may not get all the jokes
