      5. protoluigi

        I’m happy you review the animated classic because that’s at least an old movie! If you a NC on the live action one I would groan!

    2. JMJ077

      Get it? Iron Maiden? Jeremy Irons? Also, Scar acts like a maiden.

    3. Destiny McIntire

    4. Comrade Drill

      You are too underestimated

    5. Justin Coleman

      11:22 : my favorite/the best mufasa death joke. 9:26 ,. 1 of the Hardest snes level. 20:59-21:00,. My favorite joke.


      me : I hate advertisement and nothing can change my mind Nostalgia Critic : *uses advertisement* Me : I LOVE ADS


      Who knew the best part of nostalgia critic was the sponsors

    8. James Garcia

      What do u think of the lion Guard tho

    9. Brody Swinehart

      I went and saw a iron maiden concert they are good

    10. Isaac Primous

      The sponsor parts of these videos make my day

    11. Ana Wolf

      You know what? When you think about it, Scar's behavior after Mufasa's death is more than evil, it's messed up: He can't kill Simba himself, I mean, the whole point of sending him to the graveyard and later the plot with the stampede is partially this, besides not being able to take down Mufasa himself: If he did, his scent would be all over the body along with marks of his claws or teeth. He can lie about marks in Mufasa's paws by saying he was trying to help, but not with fatal wounds (even as I child I got this, pretty obvious). So, the next best course of action when Simba survives is to send the hyenas after him... What does he do? He basically shatters Simba further by saying his father died because of him, implying how devastated his mother will be and then saying the only thing he can do now is to leave his home forever. And only then Scars sends the hyenas. This is how much Scar resented/hated Simba for being next in line, he isn't satisfied with just killing him and takes the chance to twist the knife. Pretty messed up for a Disney villain, guys...

    12. Jacqueline Goodman

      8:54 would've been a good time to bring up those faces competing with the willy Wonka creepy face. Those faces are terrifying.

    13. Johanna Fernandez

      Express vpn fairy=look listen Navy=look listen Express vpn=navy Navy=Express vpn Navy and Express vpn=old navy😱

    14. CrownRock1

      I had no idea that Jim Cummings sang that part. Jim Cummings is amazing. My childhood is a lie, and I'm okay with it.

    15. Monika Tamelyte

      Jeremy Irons didn’t sing the last part because he lost his voice after he basically screamed the line “You won’t get a sniff without me!”

    16. Nemo Windsor

      Didn't twitter get offended at you because you protected predators and exploited your friends and put them in harm's way and made them uncomfortable by asking them to do sexist scenes? Maybe you need to put some sunlight on a real apology.

    17. Nadine Craft

      Simba will build a wall to keep the hyenas out.

    18. Nadine Craft

      Oh wow I didn't know Jim Cummings sang parts of be prepared! I thought that only Jeremy irons sang it.

    19. Nadine Craft

      The colors are messed up in the digital remake. Simba looks less yellow? He's not as golden yellow as he should be.

    20. Nadine Craft

      Yeah that morning report song they shoved on the lion king special edition DVD absolutely sucked.

    21. Klever Kitsune

      lol... shadman joke

    22. The Listing Show

      Hates fart jokes, makes a poop joke. You're a unfunny, hypocritical idiot, Doug...

    23. C. Curry

      Can you please review City of Ember

    24. Hitskull01

      I must agree be parpared is the best song in the movie

    25. Reggie Waring

      Hey people! I figured out a way to force him to do reviews of movies that he hates Duck tape him to a chair and play hacoona matatta on a infinite replay until he breaks 👍

    26. Doug Briglmen

      It's a shit I took an hour ago I'm very proud of it😂 And yet you keep complaining about fart jokes🤣

    27. ScatteredHoloGrapedrin k

      How is scar the gayest thing in the movie even though Timon and pumba

    28. George B. Pryor

      The fact that for courageously taking responsibility and facing evil Simba is rewarded with betrayal and persecution isn't a writing a flaw, it's deliberate and mirrors the crucifixion story of Christ.

    29. changestrangers

      I totally lost it when Doug snuck in the old "5 second Lion King" joke.

    30. Max Well


    31. Ally Hart

      Lion King 1 1/2

    32. BlueDiamonds103

      Hey Critic, Ed was also voiced by Jim Cummings!

    33. Fox Animates

      29:44-30:36 I think Doug was channeling his inner Ian Malcolm impression

    34. Nigel Cooper

      Love the reference to Jeremy Irons playing Scar by having him saying “SEEEEEXXXX!” when you compare the differences between the DVD and VHS

    35. Awesome dude

      I still loved this movie

    36. Duo Yuy

      Just wanted to say I have now had 2 DREAMS about Doug Walker.... And its really strange O_O

    37. Joshua Ruiz

      Lion attack 3:53

    38. Fragonborn Entertainment

      The thing about The Lion King is that if you look at the plot on its own, it's a generic fantasy story about the son of a king being exiled for a crime he did not commit by an ambitious uncle who seeks to do evil and eventually returns to take his place as king. However, what the movie does with this tale is what makes it special.

    39. Yang Gang

      Free Kimba

    40. MajorLeagueZombie

      the remake was AMAZING! it was just like this one! it's amazing!

    41. Noah Blair


    42. Casey Mcilan

      Now. Give all the live action remakes the Disneycember treatment.

    43. emerson is dead

      Honestly, I didn't mind the "live-action" remake. I think there were some actually funny jokes but the fact that they barely did Be Prepared was unforgivable.

    44. idiotlimrocks2

      8:10 Seriously?! I know not everyone likes “The Morning Report” song but, that DVD gave you the option of choosing to watch the original or the Morning Report song. So, I don’t get why people are still complaining about that. I think it’s nice to have that from the musical especially since it was cut from the musical in 2010

    45. Another Person From Norfolk

      Who knew a furry version of Hamlet would end up being so appreciated

    46. Toontastic Gaming

      Simba: "What's that shadowy place". Mufasa: "That's the live action remake son, you must stay far away from it".

    47. Teenage Jesus

      Not a big fan of Timon and Pumba? I'm not a big fan of you.

    48. Morten Aanstad

      Totally agree when it comes to "Be Prepared"; I was never a big fan of "Hakuna Matata" or "I just can't wait to be king" (even as a kid), and I only liked "Can You Feel the Love Tonight" when I heard Elton John sing it. "Circle of Life" is good, but I think the entire animated sequence overshadows what I feel about the song on its own. "Be Prepared" however is something I think as epic both in the film and on its own, and it's also the Disney song I have listened to in most languages since Scar is perfect in any language (the same goes for the song in general)

    49. Pl4STAT10N FOR3V3R

      20:14 when u showed that clip my cat walked in my room...

    50. wayne julian

      why can disney stop being lazy and start going back to the beautiful animation they were known for

    51. LPSAllisonTV

      16:57 he just found a way to make mufasas death funny. Absolute madlad.

    52. Joseph King

      isn't the animated remake of the live action remake basically when Disney remasters their old movies to rerelease?

    53. Average Turtle

      “The most popular song in the movie is about dodging your responsibilities.” Me: So hakuna matata is the same as Let it go. That explains a lot

    54. John Striker

      23:26 FUNNY FACE INDEED! xD

    55. Sam Kresil

      "It`s a shit I took an hour ago. I`m very proud of it."

    56. dear god why

      9:53 biggest self burn I've ever heard.

    57. レイ·ライト -Raylight

      Simba? Don't you mean *_Kimba the white lion_* ... oh wai-

    58. Johny Fuentes

      Remember when Doug had real hair

    59. Elsie

      Christopher Robin wasn't a remake...

    60. Elijah Frederick

      6:49 And Zira loved that bitch?! 😂😂

    61. Jose Salinas

      They're crocodiles.

    62. Storm Rider

      You acknowledged lion Guard? Wasn’t expecting that

    63. Corum Sorensen

      24:01 Mufasa is God apparently.

    64. Why I woke Up


    65. Why I woke Up

      The worst remake in this video is critic not shooting the gun.

    66. NeverMindGaming

      I just got done watching the older movies

    67. Ambrose Ruhlman

      Not only is the Lion king only an okay movie, it is shamelessly plagiarizing Kimba the white lion, an anime from the sixties. Pretty much anyone defending the lion king is only doing it because of nostalgia and not wanting to accept that it isn't original, so please don't be a fuck in the replies

    68. Chantel Carter

      Why doesn't anyone ever bring up Jason Weaver as young Simba's singing voice?

    69. Michael Reading

      It’s safe to say the nostalgia critic is not legit anymore. I mean tagging on The Lion King...really?! Well it was nice being a fan while it lasted

      1. Michael Reading


    70. Segev Stormlord

      Just for you, NC: "C'thulhu f'taghn." What a wonderful phrase! "C'thulhu f'taghn..." It's the End Of Days! It means C'thulhu... rising out of the haze! It's a prophecy... we'll all soon see: C'thulhu f'taghn!
