The Lion King Animated Storybook

A “virtual storybook” does not begin to describe The Lion King Animated Storybook (Disney Interactive – ages 3-9). Production values here far exceed the average CD-ROM. And why shouldn’t they? The bulk of this disc is taken directly from the movie, and that, of course, is the big draw. The artwork is gorgeous and the vocal talent of the all-star roster – James Earl Jones, Whoopi Goldberg, et al – is unbeatable. Timon the Ferret (Nathan Lane) is your guide. You have the standard choice of read or play modes, occasional games, and help with hard words from Rafiki the Monkey. This title doesn’t break new ground, but kids don’t care. It’s more of The Lion King and that’s good enough for them.

– August 1995
