Another great straight-to-video sequel/spoof, that's worth a theatrical treatment.

My Take: A funny take on THE LION KING, posing as a sequel. Surprisingly amusing.

Surprisingly, "Lion King 1 1/2" is actually another funny straight-to-video, that's worth a theatrical treatment. I don't see why Disney released this straight to video, and release crappy movies like "Chicken Little" and "Return to Neverland" theatrically. Those movies are better off seen in the video stores (in the "new releases" area), rather than seeing their theatrical posters outside the theaters.

This one is merely a spoof of the first film (although the events in "Simba's Pride" hasn't taken place yet), on Timon (voiced by Nathan Lane) and Pumbaa's (voiced by Ernie Sabella) point of view. We get to see them make fun of the events in the first film. Original voices from the first film, like Matthew Broderick, Woopie Goldberg, Cheeche Martin and Robert Guillaume, return to their voicing roles from the first film, while Julie Kavner and Jerry Stiller give some hilarious comedy relief as Timon's mom and grumpy uncle.

So doesn't this sound fun. Maybe not now, but go watch it for yourself. The fact that it's not that serious in its plot makes it the more enjoyable. It's kinda like MST3000 with Timon and Pumbaa.

Video movie rating: ***1/2 out of 5.

The Lion King 1½ Review: It exists.

Just in case you forgot, this movie started a trend of forced memes. The horror, The horror! OVERALL MOVIE: 3/10 I prefer Mystery Science Theater or Rifftrax better.

Best Disney sequel?

It seems like most people agree that this is the best direct to video Disney sequel ever made! Granted, that's not quite saying that much, but it's still something. This was loosely based on "Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead" which was appropriate for Shakespeare Month. The opening song with the meerkats is probably the best in the movie. I'm going to have to mention the show "Timon & Pumbaa" which was a completely wacky spin off with these two characters. I doubt it's canon, seeing as how it was just a goofy cartoon that didn't really mean anything.

Timon and Pumbaa really are quite funny in this movie. Despite the title, it doesn't take place between the original and "The Lion King 2: Simba's Pride". The entire movie is actually being watched in a theater by Timon and Pumbaa, kind of like "Mystery Science Theater 3000". I'm not going to spoil the ending, but it's really one of the funniest you could ever ask for in a movie like this. The animation here is quite impressive. I guess I can thank Disney for giving us at least one solid decent video sequel. ***
