Q: What was your first experience with the Lion King story?
A: I think my first experience of the Lion King had to be maybe when I was between the ages of 5-7. I just remember watching it in class one day and just being so fascinated by all these different animals, not so much about the story at that time.
Q: Why do you think people relate to Lion King?
A: I feel people relate to the Lion King because even though this movie was made over twenty years ago, it's life lessons and messages about forgiveness and family are still relatable in today's society.
Q: What has the story of Lion King taught you?
A: The story of the Lion King has taught me a variety of things, like running away from your problems doesn't solve anything, that some people in this world are just plain evil, and that you should always forgive yourself.
