I'd also like to disclose that I know of only a couple of moments from the film through internet memes, like the "everything the light touches is our kingdom" thing, and some monkey dude holding a lion cub perilously over a cliff.

Then when I was 9 I bought a Dragon Ball Z pencil box and that was that.

23. OH MY GOD I DIDN'T KNOW HAKUNA MATATA WAS FROM HERE. I HAVE HEARD OF THIS SONG BEFORE. I AM NOT ENTIRELY IGNORANT.

Sexual tension replaced with crippling self-loathing. Just like real life.
