Packed with funny behind-the-scenes stories, Timon, Pumbaa and the rest of the gang reunite to explain what really happened when King Mufasa introduced his little heir and the secrets behind other happenings in the story. For instance, did you know that the real reason all the animals knelt before the festivities on Pride Rock was because Pumbaa’s gas made half of the animals pass out? And, did you know that it was Rafiki who taught Timon about Hakuna Matata? These are just a few of the behind-the-scenes glimpses the twosome will share from their point of view. In the film, Timon and Pumbaa will reveal where they came from, how they met, and why some of the greatest moments in The Lion King look a little different from their perspective.
Watch as Nathan Lane, Matthew Broderick, Ernie Sabella and the original voice cast bring to life some of the colorful new characters. You’ll also meet Timon’s protective Ma (Julie Kavner, “The Simpsons”) and “his paranoid Uncle Max (Jerry Stiller, “Seinfeld” and “The King of Queens”).
In addition to the new spin on this timeless story, there is a new song and music by Elton John and Tim Rice. The Lion King 1 ½, fun, yet unorthodox, is one trip down memory lane, even before Simba’s tale began, that will leave you and your children laughing throughout the film.
