You’ve wandered into the topsy-turvy world of Tulgey Wood, the blog of writer and historian Jim Fanning. Tulgey Wood celebrates artistry and creativity (and sometimes just plain madness): movies, animation, TV, books, comics—and of course Disney, lots and lots of true-blue, through-and-through Disney, including D23 and Disney twenty-three Magazine, and Sketches Magazine and the Walt Disney Collectors Society. Tulgey Wood is so fun, fascinating and full of frolicsome photos and facts, it’s scary. So wander through the wonder of it all, and enjoy.

The Journey

On October 7 2003, Disney DVD released The Lion King as a Platinum Edition DVD. The 2 Disc DVD set was also released as a special Collector's DVD Gift Set that included a DVD Companion Book. The Lion King Special Edition: The Journey (pictured) was written by yours truly (with the retelling of the Lion King narrative by Disney historian Christopher Finch). In this special book I relate the behind-the-scenes story of the creation of the film, from development and story to music and animation to the addition of the newly animated "Morning Report" to the film especially for the DVD. (I also wrote the DisneyPedia-like bonus documentary about the real Lion King animals featured on Disc 2.) I don't know how many of the millions who obtained the bestselling Lion King DVD sought out the Gift Set but if you'd like to read the book, the Collectors Set can still be found online, at Amazon.com, for example.
