Simba, Nala, Timon and Pumbaa are Back For a Limited Time, Includes a New Timon and Pumbaa Bonus Feature

Available March 6, 2012 on Blu-ray™, DVD and Digital

Synopsis:    Hilarity reigns in the motion picture comedy-adventure that takes you      waaay back to the beginning before Simba’s tale began…now more      fabulous than ever for the first time in a 2-disc Blu-ray Combo Pack!
    From their uniquely hysterical perspective, Timon and his windy pal      Pumbaa—the greatest unsung heroes of the savanna—reveal where      they came from, how they helped Simba save the Serengeti and what      really happened behind the scenes of The Lion King’s biggest events.
    This essential chapter of The Lion King trilogy features your favorite      characters voiced by the original cast (Nathan Lane, Matthew Broderick,     Ernie Sabella plus Julie Kavner and Jerry Stiller) and music by Elton John      and Tim Rice.
