I literally spent 10 minutes thinking of how cool a name that would be. And how he would tell his teachers and classmates it’s pronounced like Simba’s Dad’s name…
I know I’m weird.
So I finally got around to watching the movie…
As soon as I heard the Circle of Life playing, I felt my eyes start tearing up. I don’t know exactly why, but it must have been my childhood emotions welling up from within and finally letting loose once it heard something of the past.
I could remember every single detail as it came to me. I was basically in the theater alone and I was singing my heart out to each and every song, the lyrics etched into my memory, never to be forgotten, only to be remembered.
And I giggled like a stupid idiot when I saw Simba and Nala getting it on. Can you feel the love tonight? Every scene hit me harder than I expected, the 3D wasn’t as great, but the fact that it was here in front of my, on the big screen after so many years. I couldn’t believe it was happening.
I relived my childhood today, and I loved every single second of it. Rewatching it again, it taught me how much meaning Disney has in their movies, but we were just too young to realize it.
There’s only two things you can do with your past: Run away from it, or learn from it.
