This scene was added to the Lion King after the DVD was released. The song Zazu is singing was written for the Broadway version of the movie.

Check out my Circle of Life lip sync video, which I performed because of my undying love for the Lion King. UNFORTUNATELY, the sound IS slightly off from the video because Youtube is not perfect, making it SEEM like I'm off, but you can tell with when my staff hits the stage that it truly is a YouTube sync issue and not a lip sync issue. =)

This is such an inspiring movie. Even a kids movie can give you an entirely different perspective on life.

I can't tell if this is real or not, but subliminal messaging in movies have always been interesting
