What is “The Lion King”?
Did you know that you can now find game-by-game stats of everyone, including Austin Rogers, who has won 10 or more games on Jeopardy!, here on the site?
Many settings from The Lion King, including Pride Rock, and the gorge where Mufasa was killed, were inspired by Hell’s Gate National Park in Kenya.
(As an aside: The show’s writing staff has been significantly better this season when it comes to naming the correct year for Oscar-winning films. They got their wording dead-on correct again this time. The Lion King was released in 1994.)
Delivery before December 25 is unlikely on any orders at this point. However, you can still get all of the items from The Jeopardy! Fan Online Store. Here are our top sellers; all prices are in US dollars!
