The Lion King.  It wouldn't be quite so bad if the recent DVD releases didn't have extra garbage songs added to make it fresh and new.  What was wrong with the movie before, and why can't I get the movie to play without extras?  I guess I could say the same thing for Beauty and The Beast.  Does Disney not get that plenty of their revenue is adults buying a movie they saw as children for their own children (or themselves)?  I want a movie to be the same as it was when I was young, not edited because someone thought they can make more money if they keep altering the movie and adding songs without the original performers.  Do they think we can't tell the difference?  This has led to me only really enjoying Disney movies that were released to DVD for the first time.  Mulan and Tarzan are still the way they were released in theaters and watchable.  I expect when they re-release in a few years some new junk will be added trying to get people to purchase again.

You should be able to choose the "Original Theatrical Release" for TLK in the option screen.

Beauty and the Beast is dependent on what version you have. The single-disc DVD release from years back only has the one video track with that stupid "Human Again" song, but the recent DVD release of the film has the original theatrical video.

The song kept me from buying the Lion King, and the version of Beauty and the Beast I have is the one with the song stuck in it rather then the new version.

I won't be buying a new copy even if I can finally turn off the song. The fact anyone thought it was a good idea to add it soured me.

I did forget to say thanks for the info. Looking back I might have come off rather pushy.
