YES, ABSOLUTELY! I remember that when I first saw the movie when I was 4, I was bawling my eyes out. It felt like I had Lost my own dad, the best thing I have in the world, and I was in hysterics that whole evening. I REFUSED TO EVEN FINISH WATCHING THE MOVIE! I continued watching it the Weiter day, but just after that scene when the hyenas start chasing Simba. I can get through it now, though, and the gorge scene is now my favorite. :D
Also, when I looked up the translation to "Lea Halela", I kind of teared a bit.
