HA!! LOVE IT!!
This YouTube genius synced the audio Dark Knight Rises trailer to what looks like a 90's trailer for The Lion King to make the incedaballz video (watch above)!
The lip syncing is perfect (well done), but the best part is that when put up next to each other it's pretty crazy how similar all the stories are.
In fact, now that we think about it…. This just proves that Batman is just one big Disney rip-off!! OMGZ!!!
Side note: We know Batman came before the Lion King which was is probably a rip-off of Kimba the White Lion — all of which are kind of based off Hamlet. Let us have our fun.

We can't say we blame them!
With the stampede of audiences keeping the re-release of The Lion King atop the box office hill for so long, it only makes sense to bring more out the vault.
And Disney has decided four already! Here's the timeline:

After all this Lion King success, we'd imagine we'll probably be seeing a lot more Disney 3D re-releases soon!
Thanks to the $79.7 million that The Lion King 3D has grossed domestically so far, the Disney classic film has officially entered the coveted list of top 10 domestic highest grossing films of all time, with an overall total of $408.2 million!
Here's what Disney executive vp of distribution Dave Hollis had to say about it:

Disney’s 3D re-release of The Lion King won the weekend AGAIN!
The animated classic made 22.1 million in its second weekend, beating out some tough competition for the number one spot! Will this movie ever stop making money??
Somehow (perhaps the magic of Disney?) the 20-year-old children's movie trumped the new Brad Pitt / Jonah Hill baseball drama Moneyball, which ended its opening weekend in a close race with 3D family offering Dolphin Tale.
Moneyball grossed an estimated $20.6 million, while Dolphin Tale took in an estimated $20.3 million, but the order of the two films could switch once final figures come in Monday morning.
If this isn't proof that JTT is box office gold we don't know what is!
