In the 1970s, Disney’s animated feature film The Lion Heart debuted in theaters.
At the time, it was the highest-grossing film of its time, and it spawned a cult following.
Since then, many of the characters have been adapted for animated films, including the lion cub and his brother, the lion, and the dragon, among others.
The Lionheart is a Disney film, but it has been dubbed by critics as “the worst animated film ever made.”
Here are six ways to celebrate the film’s 80th anniversary.
Celebrate the Lionheart in the theater!
The original animated film was released in 1975.
It is a beloved Disney film that was also inspired by The Jungle Book, and features an all-star cast including the voice of Donald Duck and a cameo from Tarzan.
If you’re in the mood for a little film-making fun, consider heading to a movie theater.
The theater is the perfect place to catch a movie, play an instrument, or even hang out with your family.
Make your own Lionheart cake!
If you like to watch movies with your kids, make your own movie cake.
In the original film, the lions are portrayed by animators who created the characters with puppets, and so the characters were never created with actual animals.
If the movie had been shot in the real world, the Lion Heart could have been made into a cake and eaten by all the kids at your neighborhood picnic.
Go on a tour of the Lion Kingdom!
While most of the film is set in the Kingdom of Lion, it’s the Lion’s Kingdom where you’ll find the film itself.
Visit the Lion Town, where the film takes place, and you’ll see a variety of animals and characters from across the Kingdom.
And while the film does not feature the famous lions, there are plenty of other animals and creatures in the film.
This is a great opportunity to see some of the original animated films in the form of a special, animated cake.
Make a special gift for your favorite Disney fan!
If a fan of the Disney films is your favorite movie-goer, then you may want to make a special donation to The LionHeart Foundation.
It’s a nonprofit organization that supports Disney productions.
The Foundation has raised more than $3 million for the LionHeart over the years, and its mission is to “support the vision and visionaries of the world, and to foster creativity in the arts, education, and entertainment of all ages.”
If you’d like to help, check out their website, and make sure you give a little something back to the organization.
Make an animated cake with your favorite character!
You can make your very own Lion Heart cake with the character from the film, and take it home with you as a gift for someone who loves the film and wants to celebrate.
Here are some ideas for your cake: A lion and a lion cub (or a lion and two lions) from The Lion’s Heart.
The cake would look like this: Make your very favorite cake with Tarzan’s signature lion face.
A lion cub wearing a costume from The Jungle book.

Play a song or dance with your Lionheart character.
Buy the film again for your family’s birthday!
It’s not only a great way to celebrate The Lion Hearts 80th birthday, but you can also make a great gift to someone who is not a fan.
There’s a great deal of fun to be had with this film, so be sure to add it to your collection!
Have a great Thanksgiving!
