Projections: Hakuna Matata for 'Lion King'

10 Oct, 2011 By: John Latchem



After a ridiculously successful re-release in theaters, there’s no reason to think The Lion King won’t top the sales charts with its new “Diamond Edition” Blu-ray, especially since Disney’s previous Diamond Editions were chart-toppers.

Such a feat would be even more impressive considering the competition is quite heavy, with the debut of Fast Five ($209.8 million box office) and the first full week of Transformers: Dark of the Moon.

With Fast Five on a kiosk embargo, Transformers should repeat atop the rental chart.
