From the day we arrived on the planet, we were waiting for our most beloved Disney animated movies to be made into a breathtakingly realistic CG remake with a new original song by Beyoncé. But despite the retread that Jon Favreau’s The Lion King inevitably ended up being (to both greater and lesser effect than the original, depending on who you ask), there’s more to see than could ever be seen in the theatrical version. That’s right, The Lion King is finally coming to Blu-ray and Digital soon with all-new bonus features and additional content. Disney has set the Blu-ray and Digital release dates for October 2019.

Disney announced that The Lion King will arrive on Digital in HD and 4K Ultra HD and Movies Anywhere on October 11, 2019, followed by physical releases on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD on October 22, 2019. Different bonus features will be available on both Digital and physical releases, with Digital consumers in particular receiving an exclusive extra that “playfully conveys the importance of the dung beetle both in the film and the African savanna.” Customers who pre-purchase on Digital will also gain access to “Perfecting the Pride,” a feature following the filmmakers on a research trip in Africa.
