Just in time for LDOC (Last Day of Classes for you non-students), Lilly Library’s Animated April comes to an end as does this strange semester. All the votes are counted, and the results between the match of The Ling King and Mulan are in…
Offering his final remarks, Bracketologist Nathaniel takes you inside the fierce competition:Bracketologist Nathaniel Brown
We have a winner!! It was a close and grueling affair. At one point during the contest, just three votes separated the two combatants. However, pulling it out at the very end with a 169 – 162 victory is…THE LION KING!
Drawing strength, determination, and grit from Mufasa and his other ancestors, Simba “remembered who he was” and defeated the mighty warrior and worthy adversary, Mulan.
We would like to thank you for your participation in this event. We understand the unique and tough times we are experiencing currently as humankind with the COVID crisis. We hope we have provided a bit of levity and fun in an uncertain and scary time. Thanks to you, we received the most votes we have ever received in the 3 years of these themed brackets during this final round. Thank you so much for your participation! Thanks for your suggestions as well for future brackets – we can’t wait to see what 2021 brings!
In case you were wondering, Lilly’s inaugural 2018 March Movie Madness featured Sports Movies with Rocky winning. Lilly’s March Movie Madness in 2019 was a Superhero Edition featuring Marvel vs. DC brackets where Black Panther was the victor.
Thanks again for your participation and we will see you down the road!
