Circle of Life Review

Featuring three stars of The Lion King—Simba the lion, Timon the meerkat, and Pumbaa the waddling warthog—this film delivers a powerful message about protecting the world's environment for all living things. Part animation, part National Geographic–like film using spectacular 70-millimeter live-action footage, Circle of Life tells a fable about a "Hakuna Matata Lakeside Village" that Timon and Pumbaa are developing by clearing the African savanna. Simba cautions about mistreating the land by telling a story of a creature who occasionally forgets that everything is connected in the great Circle of Life. "That creature," he says, "is man." The lilting accompaniment is Tim Rice and Elton John's popular song, and James Earl Jones is the narrator.

For people with disabilities: Wheelchair accessible. Has reflective captioning and is equipped for assisted-listening and audio-description devices. It's enlightening for children and adults; a nap opportunity for toddlers. Squeeze in other attractions and see this before leaving.
