The Lion King was a big part of my childhood, so imagine my delight when I discovered the remake of the movie making a comeback in theatres this 2019.
To top it off, The Lion King Monopoly (US$33.99) board game complete with music will be released this 22 April 2019 at all Walmart outlets.
This iconic masterpiece was created in commemoration of the animated film’s 25th anniversary and allows fans to take on the character of Simba, Nala, Mufasa, Scar, Timon, or Pumbaa.
I’m such an ardent Simba fan and I think I will hog this character piece for all the games. Sorry, not sorry.
The character pieces are coloured in gold tone that looks good enough to be collectable pieces and displayed.
The creators sure do know how to treat fans with nostalgic film references. Properties you can purchase in-game are all adapted from the film, such as the glorious Pride Rock and the ghastly Elephant Graveyard, which might ring a bell to you.
The inclusion of this mini Pride Rock that plays music from the film takes the experience to a whole new level. Press the yellow button and it will play the opening seconds of Circle of Life. How cool is that?
I can’t wait to get my hands on it though, at this moment, its release date in Singapore is still unknown. We can always ask a friend who’s overseas to help bring it home. Let us wait in anticipation till then.
Dates & Times: Available On 22 April 2019 At All Walmart Outlets
