This riotous comedy will have you in stitches as you are taken back to the beginning with the lovable comic duo Timon the meerkat and his portly pal Pumbaa the warthog. Way before Simba's time and introduction into the wild, Timon and Pumbaa take centre stage in this memorable adventure.
Stuck in his homeland and always dreaming of the high life, Timon is taken off digging duty and instead placed on sentry watch. Frightened of the colony's reaction when he fails to report a hyena attack, Timon decides to up and leave and set out on his own.
Not long after, Timon comes across Pumbaa, a perplexed warthog in the jungle, and they soon strike up a great friendship. All of this is happening simultaneously with Simba's birth and his presentation to King Mufusa and the animal kingdom up on Pride Rock. The Lion King 3; Hakuna Matata views some of the events from the original Lion King through the eyes of this mad duo - giving the story a slightly different angle!
Featuring the original voice cast from The Lion King and the much-loved music of Elton John and Tim Rice, The Lion King 3; Hakuna Matata is a must own on DVD and video. The movie also introduces two new vibrant characters - Timon's Ma (Julie Kavner, The Simpsons) and Uncle Max (Jerry Stiller, The King of Queens) that will keep the whole family entertained time and again!
The two Disc DVD is loaded with hilarious and star-studded bonus features including Timon and Pumbaa's virtual safari and deleted scenes. The Lion King 3; Hakuna Matata is available at all major DVD and video retailers from 12 May 2004 and is rated G. Make sure you add this one to your Lion King collection!
