I've developed a very strong, mysterious allergy to the Lion King. After the animated move and the stage musical, enough already.
I can't watch it anymore or I break out in spots.

Great front image with all the animal activity hidden in plain sight within the mane . . . seen before on X-MEN: APOCALYPSE

and AMERICAN PSYCHO

to name but two but also works well here appealing particularly to fans of M.C. Escher . . . front art looks proper old school although not so keen on the back . . . great to see the lion by himself as king in all his majesty for the first time on a steelbook :thumbs: . . . 'hidden' images save this front art from looking like a taxidermy head and the savannah colours look totally gorgeous.

I suspect zavvis is going to be the same, which is unfortunate. I don't know, but something is bugging me about this art, I am sure I've seen this before...…,

I have these disturbing images in my mind , something to do with an almost naked Sean Connery, and weird floating heads.....

Following the large single image seen/soon to be seen on nearly all of the previous live-action steelbook iterations (in the UK) - apart from THE JUNGLE BOOK (2016) - including DUMBO (2019), CINDERELLA (2015), BEAUTY AND THE BEAST (2017 ), MALEFICENT (2014), ALADDIN (2019), ALICE IN WONDERLAND (2010) and replicating the poster image in an artistic way:-

Similar style been done before on steelbooks - not counting WARCRAFT (lol) - with these the closest but not however with the same painterly look:-

I like the shadow animals. Everything else about this release is underwhelming to me. I'll wait for a WWE if I really like the movie.
