Delicious and Cute Lion King Recipes

Disney’s The Lion King roars into theaters this weekend! Journey to the African savanna where a future king must overcome betrayal and tragedy to assume his rightful place on Pride Rock.

The Lion King, directed by Jon Favreau, features pioneering filmmaking techniques, welcoming back to the big screen iconic characters that audiences have long treasured — but in a whole new way.

The original The Lion King is loved dearly by so many, myself included! And I can’t wait to see and hear the movie this weekend! (Hakuna Matata has been stuck in my head all week!)

    Eeeek these foods are so dang cute I can’t even handle it. When I was a kid, I painted Simba onto a rock for my sister – so those pancakes definitely caught my eye right away. I can’t wait to see this movie. I think I’ll be going to the drive-in theater to watch it with my hubby soon (once the crowds die down a bit haha)

    That roll-up cake is so cute! I’m sure it would look more like a Pinterest fail if I tried it haha. I saw the new movie on Friday and I wasn’t the hugest fan but the animated will always be one of my all-time favorites.
