You can find it and watch it online free of charge (that's what I do these days) since we got rid of the cable (nothing much good on anyway I think). But man did I love the Lion King, it was a great movie! Now I did cry but it wasn't the first movie to make me cry, don't know why but the first movie to ever make me cry was when I was about 10ish, 11ish and was watching Homeward Bound or one of those animal movies and they thought the dog the old one was dead, and I started bawling my eyes out...either that or it was Milo and otis (cat and dog movie). I can't remember... one of the two!
But yeah you're right The Lion King did rock, I did cry, and I watched it a million times when I was younger and it first came out. "Run, run away Simba" man just thinking of it I got that song in my head now "Hakuna matataaa---It means no worries...for the rest of your dayssss." and so on and so on yeahhhh that was a great movie.
