Animated Short – DC Comics Characters Meet “The Lion King”

Warner Bros. animator Hayk Manukyan posted the following video and message on his personal Facebook page, showing off the short animation he and some fellow animators put together, mashing together the DC Comics characters with “The Lion King”.

“Now that the Teen Titans GO! movie is out (digitally) I can finally share my work,” he wrote. “Last year, I got to design and animate this entire Lion King parody sequence (minus three shots). I put my name in the corner of all shots I animated. The three without my name were done by Disney vets Bruce Smith and Chris Wahl. Chris Wahl was actually an animator on the original Lion King (on Mufasa). It was an honor getting to meet them both and work with them.”
