Blu ray screencaps – The Lion King. I thought the elephant graveyard scene had some fabulous animation with smoky dust visible in the air as the young lions are pounced upon by the hyenas, obviously some of what you see in these scenes is computer animation mixed with traditional animation but it works so well. The musical number, I just can’t wait to be King, featured bright and psychedelic animation which reminded me a lot of a sequence seen in Dumbo.
