Given the beautifully realistic nature of the flick, the scenes that might have spooked your kids in the original are next-level in the live-action version. Parents should prepare for their kids to jump when Simba and Nala are being chased by the hyenas in the elephant cemetery, and while it's beautifully done, the second Scar stops singing "Be Prepared," the classic high-energy scene kicks off, and boy, is it a wild ride.
As for the infamous stampede scene that's so emotional it still brings grown men to tears? It's just as well put together, but even more heart-wrenching. While the time between Mufasa trying to rescue Simba and the young cub finding his father seemed to elapse far faster than I remember, it's still just as heartbreaking. Heck, most of the adults in the room were crying, so expect that your little ones may need some consoling.
