Celebrate The Lion King Movie With This Free Puzzle

Sharing is caring!

I hope you have been preparing because the day has finally arrived. A day many Disney movie fans, including my own family, have waited a long time for. July 19th, which is the day that The Lion King movie (live-action) was finally  released in theaters. My kids have been preparing by watching the original Lion King, listening to the new soundtrack and talking about their theories for this live action movie for months and now its time to celebrate. 

Can you believe the original, animated Lion King movie came out in 1994? I was 14 years old, but I can still remember the emotions and excitement I felt after seeing it. Let’s also not forget listening to the soundtrack over and over again.

Hopefully this new Lion King live-action movie will evoke some of those same emotions, especially with its message. To celebrate and so your kids can be prepared, I have a free, printable Lion King characters crossword puzzle to share with you. 

What is the message of the Lion King?

One of my most favorite things about Disney’s The Lion King is the message. I hope the important messages of friendship, family, strength, bravery and courage are still as strong in this new live-action movie.

There are also some very meaningful quotes throughout the movie that will have you thinking about life, love and loyalty.

Who are Simba’s friends?

There are lots of animal characters within The Lion King, but there are definitely some fun-loving ones like Simba’s friends.

Simba’s two best friends are Timon and Pumbaa. They are right there beside him through thick and thin, and also to teach him the meaning of Hakuna Matata.
