The Lion King Rises: 'Dark Knight Rises' Trailer Parody (VIDEO)

Anticipation for "The Dark Knight Rises" is already reaching a fever pitch, in part thanks to the prologue that began running ahead of select screenings of "Mission: Impossible" this past December.

As usual, enthusiasm breeds parody, and we've been particularly enjoying this mashup of "The Dark Knight Rises" audio with "The Lion King." In fact, it's a little unsettling how well it works.
