After supper we watched "The Lion King," which we haven't seen in several years. I'm pretty sure the boy didn't remember having seen it before. The girl (10) was able to ask why Mufasa sounds like Darth Vadar. She's pretty good at picking up the similarities in voices from one (animated) film to another.

Speaking of animation, when Lion King was released in 1994, it was the height of animation--and now its scenes of water, fire, and animals moving are so flat when compared with the fire scenes and flowing water as rendered in "The Incredibles."
