DVDizzy.com presents The Lion King Blu-ray + DVD Giveaway

Win the much-anticipated return of Disney's beloved animated classic, available October 4th!

Disney animation roared to new heights in 1994 with the release of The Lion King. Following in the footsteps of the highly successful Beauty and the Beast and Aladdin, The Lion King lived up to its title with a princely domestic gross of over $300 million. That made it the top-grossing film of 1994, though its crown was handed over to Forrest Gump when Gump's theater count expanded to coincide with its 1995 Oscar season glory. Even so, The Lion King's earnings made it the biggest animated film ever and ranked it fifth on the all-time domestic list. Though twenty or so films outgrossed it since then (ignoring so much inflation), The Lion King recently shot back up the list with the most popular return theatrical engagement of this century. In its 3D and 2D reissue, the film topped the North American box office two weeks in a row, outselling Brad Pitt's acclaimed drama Moneyball, the family film Dolphin Tale, and other new releases given a significantly higher number of theaters. There is a chance that today's new openings could also bow before the King. If so, it would become only the second film this year to win three weekends in a row. To quote the wise baboon Rafiki, "The king has returned."

The demand for the film is all the more impressive considering that the movie returns to DVD and debuts on Blu-ray on Tuesday, October 4th in Disney's Diamond Edition Blu-ray + DVD, a Blu-ray 3D + Blu-ray + DVD + Digital Copy combo pack, and in a 8-disc Trilogy Collection accompanied by Blu-rays and DVDs of its two well-received sequels.
