    Way to go Lion King! I hope Disney continues to re-release movies in theaters. It was wonderful to this and Toy Story 1&2 on the big screen again 🙂

And I do have a couple of questions for you if it’s allright. Is it just me or does it look like some of these responses appear like left by brain dead individuals? 😛 And, if you are writing at additional social sites, I would like to follow everything new you have to post.
