    Hello,

    How many different versions of the LION KING are there on LD?

    I only know of 2 versions. The deluxe box set and a standard movie only letterboxed edition.

    Are the transfers/sound the same between these?

    Is there a P&S version out there I should be wary of?

    thanks in advance,

    Jim

    I can only remember those two versions, but I may be wrong.
    The CAV box set has a somewhat cleaner image than the CLV disc, but of course you deal with the extra side changes/disc changes. I usually watch the CLV version (I have both), but if I'm in a real picky mood I'll watch the CAV discs[​IMG]

    I have the CAV boxed set that I got just a few months ago on ebay. Great set. I also only know of the movie only CLV single disc and it's letterboxed too. AFAIK, there was no P&S release on LD.

    There are only the two releases mentioned. The box set is the favored one.
