The Lion King 1 1/2
Based on the classic film The Lion King, this movie focuses on primarily Timon and Pumbaa's view on the various events that occurred in the original movie. Throughout the movie, Timon meets back up with his family, and both Timon and Pumbaa must become a father-like figure to Simba after his father passes away. The original DVD release (re-releases remove most if not all of them) contains four games accessed on Disc 2:
• Timon and Pumbaa's Virtual Safari 1.5: This 8 minute journey follows Timon and Pumbaa, along with their families, on a fun-filled ride created by themselves. The interactive part of the safari comes when you must choose a path. There are many paths to choose from, all based on rides found at the actual Disney theme parks. The adventure can be played many different times and still have different outcomes.
• Who Wants to Be King of the Jungle: This parody of "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?" is hosted by Meredith Vieira. As Timon, you must guess all of the Lion King related questions correctly in order to become the king of the jungle. You can also "Phone an Animal" or "Poll the Herd" if you are unsure of the answer, which you can use three times. However, the herd is not always correct, so make sure to use your lifelines carefully.
• Find the Face: Many familiar Disney characters are coming to see the premiere of Timon and Pumbaa's brand new movie. You are tasked by Timon to find exactly who's in the audience. Use the silhouettes seen in the audience and pick the correct Disney character. The goal is to get as many correct as you can.
• Hidden Mickey Hunt: For years, many different Disney movies have had Mickey Mouse ears hidden throughout the movie. When you play the movie in this mode, there will be 20 new pairs of Mickey ears to find. When the ears show up, an symbol will show up on screen, giving you 30 seconds to find it. At the end, you can go back and look at the Mickey ears that you have found. All of the answers were originally available on the movie's website.
