Is this normal?

We've never been concerned about what is on the tv because we don't bring anything past pg into the house.  Well my 3 year old was playing and I was dusting while we watched/listened to Lion King.  It's never bothered him before, but for the last week he's been crawling in bed with his dad and I crying about hyenas. Is this normal that he is starting to be scared of shows or is it something I did wrong?

Have you had the "it's not REAL" talk? It's just a fake movie?

I don't know what you consider late afternoon. It was about 3:30?

Just in time for bed... It's scary for kids even though its a G movie... You have to tell him its ok to be scared but simba is brave and you should be too..

Children have difficulty separating fantasy from reality until approx the age of 6. From my psych course.

Yeah it's normal. My daughter has seen scary movies before (jurrasic park, dracula, others I can't think of at the moment), and things that you would think would scare her don't. But you know what did scare her? The shadows in The Princess and the Frog, she was scared of shadows for like half a year!
