THE LION KING 3D (U, 89 MINS); Also released this week...

ELDERLY lion Scar (voiced by Jeremy Irons) plots to usurp his brother, the majestic King Mufasa (James Earl Jones), and seize control of the grasslands in a fragile alliance with the hyenas. The scoundrel orchestrates a devilish plan to kill Mufasa and newborn cub Simba (Jonathan Taylor Thomas), the rightful heir to Pride Rock, by luring them into a canyon during a wildebeest stampede. Mufasa dies saving his son from being crushed under hoof. Poor Simba is overwhelmed by guilt - inflamed by Scar's cruel words - and he flees his homeland, finally collapsing in the jungle where he befriends the eccentric double-act of neurotic meerkat Timon (Nathan Lane) and flatulent warthog Pumbaa (Ernie Sabella). Years later, the now full-grown Simba (Matthew Broderick) chances upon his former sweetheart Nala (Moira Kelly), who tells of Scar's despotic reign.

Filled with anger, Simba returns to Pride Rock to overthrow Scar and save his family from extinction.
