Title Best
Lion King, The: Special EditionR4
    From what I can gather, the Region 4 release misses out on:
  • Trailers for Brother Bear, Sleeping Beauty: SE, George of the Jungle 2, Finding Nemo, Santa Claus 2, and Mary Poppins: SE)
  • Disney Enhanced Home Theatre Mix - Dolby Digital 5.1

    It also appears the Region 4 release misses out on some of the extras found on the laserdisc release including:

  • The Making of The Lion King
  • Storyboard pitches
  • Early concept featurettes

    The Region 1 DVD release misses out on:

  • Disney Enhanced Home Theater Mix - DTS 5.1 soundtrack

    Overall, I would recommend the Region 4 release purely based on the video and audio quality alone. I am a little disturbed that the making-of documentary on the laserdisc did not make it to this Special Edition DVD release, and would hope that it was not moved aside to make room for all the featurettes on The Lion King phenomenon.
