It's The Ciiiiiiircle Of Life!

Kittens are basically useless at everything, which makes them perfect stand-ins for Disney movie reenactments. Some grownups with a lot of time on their hands corralled a small child and a bunch of behbeh kittehs for a somewhat comprehensive reenactment of “The Lion King,” songs included. They’re no Jonathan Taylor Thomas, but they’ll do! [Mashable]
