The Lion King A U film should be suitable for audiences aged four years and over, although it is impossible to predict what might upset any particular child.

U films should be set within a positive framework and should offer reassuring counterbalances to any violence, threat or horror. If a work is particularly suitable for pre-school children, this will be indicated in the ratings info.

Directed by Tim Story and starring Chloƫ Grace Moretz the movie is a mixture of live action and traditional animation, more like Who Frames Roger Rabbit than The Lion King.

Due to the pandemic the movie has been pushed back to 5th March 2021, right before the school Easter holidays.
