Favorite Overall Moment
Sorry this is late! And what a task stands before me in this category. How on Earth am I supposed to pick the best overall moment in any Disney movie? Hmm…let me think about this…ah, I’ve got it!
Yes, this is most definitely the one. And not just because my attitude while doing this challenge is basically, “When all else fails, pick something from The Lion King.” All joking aside- the “Circle of Life” scene in this film is a masterwork of visuals, music, and pure exhilaration. The words of the song are so meaningful. The sight of all the savanna animals is fascinating and beautiful. And ultimately, when the number culminates in Simba’s recognition as the next king, it all just becomes….I don’t know, life-affirming? Either way, “Circle of Life” is undoubtedly the greatest opener to a Disney movie, and quite possibly one of the greatest openers for film in general.
