The fact that I don't see the crocodiles just sititng there doing nothing doesn't bother me. It's not going to effect my enjoyment during that song, and certainly not for the overall film.

It looks like the exact same scene, just differently animated.

How does this affect the overall content of the movie?

when they did the IMAX version, they touched up a lot of the animation, most notably the Mufasa's Ghost sequence but apparently a little bit here and there, so it would look better on the IMAX screens. then with the DVD they used the touched-up version for both the regular 1994 version and the special IMAX version, rather than the original animation for the 1994 version. i wouldn't go so far as call it censorship since as far as i know nothing's been taken out.. but a blunder for sure not to include the original animation on the original theatrical version.

i'm by no means an expert on the film, i've only seen it a few times and when i watched the DVD last week i couldn't tell any major changes.. i'm sure they are and they could be easy to see if compared side-by-side but i don't think anyone but the most die-hard animation fans will notice anything..

Doesn't look bad too me. Looks more like they were "finished" rather than "butchered".

WORD DonnachaOne. I could email 'em to ya...they'd probably get their faster...
Let's get nitpicky, shall we Chicken Little..?

from the link:
3D Zazu talks to you for a good 2-3 minutes before the menu screen appears. Are you surprised, though? I’m not. Everyone loves this kind of crap, right?
From the moment Zazu appears, he spends the first 54 seconds flying to Pride Rock...he then spends exactly 22 seconds talking before the options come up..
Here, this will blow your mind. Ready for this? There are some crocodiles that have a few seconds of screen time in the “I Just Can’t Wait To Be King” sequence. Remember them? Here’s a screenshot from the original film on VHS:

[Insert slow loading screenshots from VHS here]

Well, for some reason, both versions of the Lion king on DVD have replaced the above drawings with this blinding, horrible crap:

[Insert [what the poster thinks is] slow loading, blinding, horrible crap here]

Oh my friggin god, WHY??! Hahahahaha. Can anyone explain this? ‘Cause I’ve never been so curious in my life. Apparently, both the drawings AND the composition needed to be fixed for the DVD release. Wow, ‘see how much better it looks, now? Even the birds were 'improved'.

If they were gonna rework some scenes, why couldn’t they rework the retarded Simba/Scar slow-motion fight scene at the end? Of all things to mess around with, why the crocodiles?
So...it's okay to rework the "retarded" Simba/Scar fight, but not the crocodiles..? Perhaps Chicken Little should get a job at Di$ney so s/he could pick and choose what they want to "improve"...

No worries, I got 'em.

Took TEN MINUTES ON A T3 CONNECTION, but I got 'em. I figure everyone's trying to get onto his personal page at once...

The eyes on the crocs do look a little weird, I might point out. UN-disney. Then again, the original crocs looked undisney too...

When those pics started to load, I thought they were gonna show the crocs w/o the birds in their open mouths. But, it's just the same scene that was reworked so no biggie to me. As much as I would've liked the original animation, I can live with this.

Same thing I was thinking, I thought for sure the birds would have been taken out. While a little odd to look at I don't mind the new animation much.

It wouldn't be a Disney release without them messing with something...

Honest to God, I think they do this sometimes just so they can log onto the Internet and laugh at all of the complaints.


To me, this isn't the end of the world. But, then again, I'm a pretty damn casual fan of this film. I can fully understand it upsetting people who are big fans (and, given the bank this one made at the box office, I suspect there are more than a few). I still have my LD box set for this one... I'll probably hang onto it for a bit until I see what other changes were made, and what supplements didn't make the transition to DVD.

Wow.

That is not even remotely a problem. In fact, I think looks better, but then again I'm not an Animation nerd. Just a DVD and Music nerd, thank you .

Looks more like they redid the whole scene, as opposed to fix it up!
