8 Amazing Behind-the-Scenes Photos From the Production of The Lion King

From the Oh My Disney blog

Once upon a time there was a movie called The Lion King, and during that movie’s production something magical happened. And no, we aren’t talking about the coming together of the world’s top animators, the perfect verisimilitude of filmmakers, musicians, and actors, or even the wonder that was young Jonathan Taylor Thomas. We are talking about the day that real-live lions paid a visit to Walt Disney Animation Studios. Take a look at the photos from that wondrous day and be sure to note not only the King of the Pride Lands, but also the great ’90s fashions, and the awesome group of people that brought one of our favorite films to life:
