It probably doesnt have any fans on here but I find it very odd they are making changes to the show now, if it aint broke! especially The Morning Report which was specially animated to be added to the movie for its DVD release a few years ago and any future cinema reissues. Its also one of the stronger new songs in the show

Yeah this info has been switrling around for weeks
It is strange that they want to change it now though, i will agree its too long as it stands now and the songs they are cutting dont really bother me.

I like the show actually, its the most inventive of the Disney shows
Namo i love u but we get it already....you don't like Madonna

Very disappointing, when The Morning Report was cut when I saw the show recently in Vegas, as Princeton says one of the stronger songs.

I too am a fan of 'The Lion King' - technically, I think it's incredible.

I'm not too fussed on 'The Morning Report', whenever I watch the DVD, I always make sure I watch the original theatrical version rather than sit through that each time.
Everything in life...is only for now.

I hate this show. It was such a let down after so much hype. After the first five minutes it is a train wreck.

They could cut 99% of the show as far as I'm concerned LOL. Bored me silly.
