Before the long-running Broadway play and successful live-action remake, there was this animated hit from Disney Studios. Following a young lion cub as he returns from exile to seize the throne, it featured some of the best songs in movie history. Hans Zimmer’s original music score was equally superb, winning both a Golden Globe and an Academy Award.
