Video Shows Us How They Made the “Roars” in Lion King

Lion King is one of the most iconic and classic Disney films of our generation. It has gotten quite a number of sequels, spinoffs, and remakes into various TV shows and Broadway shows since it was first released in 1994–almost 25 years ago already. The kind of talent that’s involved in a Disney production is unbelievable. They’ve given us so many great films in the past and continues to do so to this day. However, Lion King will always be one of the best ones. Perhaps one of the few things that make Lion King special is the soundtrack, or better yet–the incredible sounds of all the animals in the film.

We’ve always wondered how Disney was able to incorporate all the animal sounds in the film. Did they go to the zoo to record whatever animal they could? What about all the lion sounds? Did someone brave the lion enclosure just to get the perfect sound bite? Turns out that they didn’t need to. In this video, we get a short glimpse into how the production company made the “roaring” lion sounds in the movie, and it was done simply with a microphone and an empty trash bin.

Hard to believe? Watch it for yourself. The video features actor Frank Welker, who is known for quite a few roles in movies including as Megatron in the Transformers franchise. In Hollywood, he also happens to be the voice guy, as he’s got some pretty impressive talents in making various sounds, including animal sounds. We see him on this video roaring into a trash bin to create the echoing sound of a lion’s roar. The result was pretty amazing. Welker also happened to be the voice of Abu from Aladdin. Some other famous animated animal characters that Welker has voiced in the past includes Scooby-Doo, Dino from Flintstones, Dollar the Dog from Richie Rich, Donkey Kong Junior from Saturday Supercade, and many, many more.
