The Lion King: Ten Years Old by Akril15 The Lion King: Ten Years Old by Akril15
On May 24th, Disney's The Lion King turned ten. Wow. Has it really been that long?

Here's my contribution to the movie's 10th Annniversary. It's the entire main cast and a large host of supporting actors. I worked for quite a while on this thing, and I think it was worth it, in spite of the anatomy and lighting problems and the unintentional asymmetry.

(The reason Timon and Pumbaa aren't there is because it didn't seem logical to include them alongside Mufasa, since they made an appearance after his death...besides, they've been getting enough attention in the wake of The Lion King 1 1/2.)

You were the one that made the animation with the song "Toy Soldiers" right?

Yes, I did. It's only on my TLKFAA account, though.

It's all right -- I was just a little puzzled by your question, that's all.

HEY that's right! It DID come out on my birthday, my seventh, and I went to go see it in the theatre, and I've been in love with it ever since...and now I'm 23. Holy crap.

Hehe, I like how Rafiki is comforting Scar, and how he and Sarafina's tails are kinda playing the lion version of footsie XD.

Thank you!

Come to think of it, the 15th anniversary of TLK was this year. Time sure does fly.

I don't know why but I really love the expression of the faded cheetah.
I can just imagine it says that the story would've been better about them.

Nala's mom and Scar's tails are entwined does that mean anything?

Actually, no. I just had their tails touching to complete the "circle" formed by the main characters.

Thank you! I miss 2D animation too. This 3D stuff is amazing, but it just doesn't have the charm and spirit of those older 2D films. I'm addicted to 2D computer games too.

Oooh, I just love this. It's gorgeous. Unique idea, but it's really working.

I see what you mean about Timon and Pumbaa, and you've actually brought a thought to my mind. I wonder what Mufasa would have thought of them... :)

Anyways, great job. Love how the other animals of the kingdom are silhouetted. It's an awesome effect!
