Simba Plays Batman In The Lion King Rises

Of Course!

Be prepared, everything about this parody is perfect. I love The Lion King and I love Batman but I never imagined I’d see them together and certainly not like this. I don’t even know how or why YouTube user MovieMaestroTen (Brad Hansen) thought combine the two but we are so, so glad he did. I’m not ashamed to say Michael Caine doing the voice of Zazu almost made me lose it.
