SHOWED MY 4 YEAR OLD NIECE THE LION KING FOR THE FIRST TIME...

  1. What I thought she would be into:
    Obviously she would be hooked from the incredible Circle of Life opening especially because she loves animals and songs. Same logic for why she would be rapt during I Just Can't Wait to be King. Timon and Puumba would clearly be her favorite and make her life with their bug eating shenanigans and Hakuna Matata living. Rafiki and his blue butt. And then it would end and she would immediately want to watch the glory again.
  2. What she actually was into:
    Apparently just the Lions fighting. Because that's all she wanted to play for an hour after. "Ok, now you're the bad lion and I'm the other one" and then she'd attack me and try to swipe my face with her paw.
