Hilarity reigns in the motion picture comedy-adventure that takes you waaay back to the beginning before Simba's tale began...and beyond! From their uniquely hysterical perspective, Timon and his windy pal Pumbaa -- the greatest unsung heroes of the savanna! -- reveal where they came from, how they helped Simba save the Serengeti and what really happened behind the scenes of THE LION KING's biggest events. This essential chapter of THE LION KING trilogy features the orginal all-star voice cast as your favorite characters and music by Elton John and Tim Rice. You will feel the love for every outrageously funny moment!
The Lion King 1½ is an ingenious sequel that retells the original film's story from the perspective of best pals Timon the meerkat (voiced by Nathan Lane) and Pumbaa the warthog (Ernie Sabella). Anyone who has wondered how this odd couple met will find out here, beginning with Timon's flight from home following disgrace and his chance encounter with the sweet but lonely Pumbaa. With the arrival of young Simba (Shaun Flemming), The Lion King's familiar tale is reborn via a fresh angle, fleshed out by returning characters Rafiki the wise monkey (Robert Guillaume), Shenzi (Whoopi Goldberg), and Simba's love interest, Nala (Moira Kelly). While the retooled narrative proves a novel experience, The Lion King 1½ is really a vehicle for voice actors Lane and Sabella, whose comic performances are shamelessly, broadly funny. Matthew Broderick, Julie Kavner, and Jerry Stiller are also in the vocal cast. --Tom Keogh --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
