One of the greatest movies of all time was Disney’s: The Lion King (1994). It was a bold choice for Disney to produce because at the time, many of the children’s films released were stories of never ending hope, but this was a story of a different sort. It was based loosely off of the story of Hamlet. Hamlet, mind you, is only the single most popular play of playwright William Shakespeare, says the Time Out London Theatre. 

Much of the reason why The Lion King is the best is because it, as per Disney tradition, is a musical movie. The 3 most popular songs therefrom are Circle of Life, Hakuna Matata, and Can You Feel the Love Tonight. All three of these, written by the legend, Sir Elton John won academy awards in 1995 according to

The motion picture itself had received 2 Oscars, according to the Internet Movie Database and it is the number one movie of its kind within their ranks.
