Q: What was your first experience with the Lion King story?
A: When I first saw the Lion King I thought the story was very intense. I'd never watched a child's story that showed so many intense and sad scenes. When Simba's dad dies, when the lionesses and hyenas fight, it was the most dramatic animated movie I'd ever seen.
Q: Why do you think people relate to Lion King?
A: I think we can all relate to the story of the Lion King because we all experience loss and sadness, we all feel guilt and blame sometimes. Buts it's a really powerful exciting thing to watch someone be brave and do what's right.
Q: What has the story of Lion King taught you?
A: A few different things: always be brave, don't be afraid of mistakes, learn from them, take responsibility for them, ask for forgiveness, and never give up.
