The four.
Hi guys, I just downloaded this movie a few months ago after not seeing it in many years. There are certain things that I dislike that I would to write it down here, so here we go.

The Story-line

The story was borrowed from another Shakespeare classic, Romeo and Juliet. While I think they kept the Shakespearean tradition going on, I personally felt that they should be more original towards the story. The movie also left me a number of unanswered questions that I'm going to voice out.
Worse of all, they never explain how the Outlanders were banish as they were never introduce in the first movie at all! Secondly, how are they related to Scar? Especially Zira herself.
Also, where were the hyenas during this time? Did Simba banish them or something? I guess not!

The Characters

While the characters are the same, the only disappointments are Zazu, Timon, Pumbaa and Rafiki. Why didn't Rowan Atkinson come back to voice Zazu? This I have always ask myself! Timon, Pumbaa and Rafiki had less screen-time too, I mean, isn't Rafiki suppose to be Simba's friend or something?

Warning the following article has things including:

Spoilers and Opinion

If you haven't watched the movie I suggest leaving or if you've seen the movie but can't understand that people are entitled to their own opinion then I also suggest leaving.

Also if you see a word all in caps, I'm not yelling I'm just proving a point...

Enjoy :^)


I've watched the show, movie whatever with nervous expectations. I was worried that it may either rise the legendary franchise or destroy it almost instantly. After watching I have mix emotions, Happy, sad, furious, disappointed and other emotions.

The only thing in the movie when I had the biggest smile that I had from the little movie is that; they kept a small clip of the classic soundtrack in the beginning (before it got to the edited part...) , the fact that Timon, Pumbaa, and Rafiki didn't lose their charm and the voices for both Pumbaa and Mufasa. That's really it.

Ok, when I found out that Kiara is a cub in The Lion Guard I didn't like it. Don't get me wrong. I am trying to make myself get used to the idea that Kion is a cub, not to mention the same age as Kiara according to what Disney just said. Yes, he is the second born but maybe he was from the same litter (making kiara and kion twins). So yeah.. he was born after Kiara and as it turns out he is the same age as her (not a big fan of that either).
By the way yes he is the second born because -for the last time- there is no Kopa! :P
However! It makes scenes from the second movie not make any sense!

1. The Hyenas.
First of all according to the teaser there are hyenas in The Lion Guard while in 'Simba's Pride" Nuka clearly says "This place is even creepier since the hyenas ran off"'. I mean seriously? Did they totally forget about that? Yes I like the idea of hyenas being in this series but come on now..
(except if they ran off when both Kiara and Kion were teenagers? I don't know..)

Honestly I think Nala takes more control of the Kingdom than Simba does. I mean, she doesn’t let him know that since she’s aware of Simba’s dire need to follow the in the footsteps of his father, but Simba is a very damaged and hotheaded lion that she balances out with her calmness and clearer thinking. So, Nala insists on following Simba everywhere and helping take care of Royal Duties so she can keep him grounded if things start getting out of hand with his emotions.

I did not write this. I though I would upload it since I totally agree. Found this on Tumblr

I was answering a question today under Forums because someone had asked "how we know so much about the characters and their back grounds?" Well I gave a pretty lengthy answer but it's worth mentioning again I think.

You see when you're as passionate about something as a die hard lion king fan you can understand where I am coming from. You see these characters as real, even though you know they aren't. It's about the extensive research into the minds and hearts of the characters we've come to know and love. I can't tell you how many what if? Stories and scenarios I personally have come up with and also have read and you know they always make sense in theory! But it's not the fact that it's not canon or that they will never (sad to say) make another sequel as good as the first but it's the fact that us fans have something to hold on to.

Let's take Kopa for instance,yeah,yeah we all know he doesn't really exist according to film canon but! That doesn't mean he doesn't exist! He exists because someone thought it would be cool to make a a continuity where Simba has a son instead of a daughter. And the way I see it, is that it's just an alternate universe...

An archetype is a model device commonly used in media, and there are quite a few of them present in The Lion King. Sometimes archetypes are used to allow the viewer to make a better connection with a character or narrative, sometimes they are used to symbolise something important, and sometimes they are used simply because it makes sense to do so. Here are just some of the archetypes used in the 1994 animated movie...

Reluctant Hero
This is, of course, Simba. The Reluctant Hero is a common archetype used in a lot of movies, and is normally the protagonist. Simba is the good guy and the rightful king to the Pridelands, even though for a large portion of his life he would rather leave the past behind him. It takes a lot of encouraging from other characters until he finally returns home and faces the antagonist Scar to take back his kingdom.

Wise Old Man
This character archetype is almost always present in a work that contains a Reluctant Hero, and acts as a guide or mentor to them on their journey. The Lion King's Wise Old Man is Rafiki. While Rafiki is present a number of times throughout the film, his Wise Old Man...

Rumours persist that Disney intend to film all the old school animated movies as live-action remakes. If a Lion King remake is green lighted, here is how I think they should proceed:

1. Make an adaptation of the musical- with "The Madness of King Scar" intact. That song, along with the "One By One" sequence, gives us a touch more detail as to why the Pride Lands went to hell during Scar's time as king. The original movie is kind of like "Fuck you, The Pride Lands are falling because Scar is the bad guy!" whereas the MUSICAL establishes the fact that the hyenas are destroying the Pride Lands.

2. Utilise "He Lives In You". I can see Mufasa singing that.

3. Seeing the animal's faces move is a little bit alienating. It's like watching the dogs talk in Snow Buddies. Maybe their lines could be like an inner monologue or something. You know like the Snake from Conan The Barbarian or Wishbone from Wishbone.

4. DO NOT MAKE THIS CGI OK! THAT WOULD SUCK! IT WOULD BE A SLAP IN THE FACE TO FANS EVERYWHERE!

The Lion King remains to this day my favourite animated movie. It has spawned two sequels and a Broadway musical, among other things. However, as it has happened so often in the past with a lot of films, the sequel is a path to the dark side.

Whereas darker and edgier sequels like The Empire Strikes Back and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets have worked and done their predecessors justice, The Lion King 2 fails miserably.

THE GOOD:

It is refreshingly different to see a Disney sequel that picks up immediately after the events of the first film.

It is also refreshingly different to see a Disney sequel that doesn't come out six decades after the original.

"He Lives In You" is a great song... and so is "Upendi". Too bad the rest of the songs had to be so depressing...

Rafiki the Matchmaker? Now that was a subplot with great potential. Unfortunately, we have to spend a lot of the film with a teenage lion voiced by that lame-boy Andy Dick...

1. She does not listen to her parents when they tell her that the outlands are dangerous and that she should never go there, however she gets angry when her father doesn't trust her. How will he trust you if you keep being disobedient?

2. The fact that she knows nothing about self defence and sucks as a fighter (I assume) doesn't stop her from going to the outlands. (I'm talking about the teenager Kiara who "can" think logically). Why would you go to a dangerous place when you can't protect yourself in the first place? Pretty much everyone can outmatch her.

3. After the ambush, when Simba was badly injured and was lying on Pride Rock the only thing she cared about was Kovu "Daddy, it can't be true". This is not about Kovu.. It's about your father's life who barely made it out of there alive so stop being so selfish and get your facts straight.

4. She knew Kovu for barely two days. You can't love him and he can't love you. "He loves me, for me!". No. No one can trust someone after only two days that much! How can she be so naive?

PLEASE READ part one if you haven't read it yet it will give you better sense in what's going on in this story





Timon gets up and goes in front of Simba, Timon:" Simba, I'm sorry I was annoyed by what you two did to me and again I'm sorry do you forgive me?" Simba didn't say anything but then looked at him Simba:" (sigh) I forgive" he says giving a slight smile then giving Timon a hug. Night has fallen as Nala once again laying in the dead almost just ground grass, decided to stay out and look at the stars with her face still sore from the abuse of Scar, as she looks up rubbing her sore face as her mother finds her wondering where she's been. Sarafina:" there you are, what you doing out here" Nala:" looking at the stars... the only thing that keeps me sane" she says as her mother looks up at the night sky then lays next to her daughter to join her. Sarafina:" beautiful night" Nala:" it is, if only we had a better king to enjoy it with" with her hinting about Simba which her mother didn't catch Sarafina:" you know my father told me that he was told by Mufasa's father, that the great kings of the past are up there from those...

The next morning in the jungle Timon is the first to wake up as he looks around noticing that Simba isn't where he usually sleeps, Timon:" did he really sleep there all night?" Timon leaves Pumbaa to sleep as he goes to looks for Simba, Timon went to the area where they looked at the stars the other night and Timon found peaceful sleeping Simba who looks like he's in a very intense dream or nightmare by a guess of him moving his back paws rapidly. (In Simba's dream) In his dream it's about him, his father, Nala, and mother, it shows him throwing his father off the cliff as Nala and his mother looks at him in shame with full hatred as he tries to explain but seems like no word is coming out of his mouth, as both Nala and his mother leave him where he is as his dead father says " why Simba?" but wasn't long until Timon woke him up. Timon:" hey seemed like you had a bad dream so I woke you up" Simba:" yeah I did and thanks" Timon sits next to him " wanna talk about it?" Simba nods no with his ears still flatten on his head Timon:" it'll make you feel better if you tell me" Simba:" (sigh) you wouldn't understand which is probably best not to tell you, plus it's in the past" Timon...

In pride rock Scar is eating his full leg of a antelope as he gets flashbacks of him eating with his family or just his mother which Mufasa and his father was the ones to eat together. Scar stops eating and sighs Scar:"(sigh) why must sorrow flashbacks haunt me now" he says to himself not having the appetite to eat anymore. Scar then sneaks to the very top of pride rock where the only way up is to take a slanted path behind pride rock, once he got up there he takes a look at the very slowly drying up kingdom then at the grey colorless sky. Scar:" (sigh) mother if your up there watching I hope I didn't disappoint you, I couldn't hold in my jealousy any longer, I mean you would agree he was being favorited by father way too much then needed." "mother if I have disappointed you, what is there left to care for anymore from me, the kingdom is slowly dieing as I know it but I have no control over that, and I thought being king would be the only thing to make me happy when you died but I feel no happier but I still want to be king, please mother I ask for help!" a tear comes from Scar's eye as the wind picks up as a figure of a glowing lioness appears behind him.

It's a bright sunny day at the jungle as young cub Simba is usually and always the first one up but this time he wakes up being the last one to wake knowing after the death of his father and having to run away there is no one to impress or make proud anymore. Simba gets up and stretches then looks around Simba:" I wonder where Timon and Pumbaa are?" he says talking to himself as he walks going to find his two new best friends. He first looks at the pond where the water of a waterfall ends and is also where they drink, Simba:" not here" he says taking a drink of the water then walking away, he looks where they eat grubs which is a big log and several openings in trees surprisingly not there either " where are they, they're always here" says walking towards another direction. Simba decided to take unfamiliar paths, he takes a path that is taking him to a area where he finally finds Timon and Pumbaa hanging from couple of vines like a hammock.

Simba:" what are you guys doing?" he says confusingly Timon looks " oh hey Simba, we're hanging on theses vines called a hammock" Simba:" a ham what?" Pumbaa:" a hammock, you lay in it, it's like a bed but in the air" Simba:"...

First off; Yes, I do realize It was clearly meant as a parody of the first film and not as an actual serious midquel. At the most it was to give a backstory for Timon and Pumbaa's friendship. And yes, I know that some jungle scenes between Timon, Pumbaa and Simba were written by the first film's creators but since we don't know which ones, I wouldn't regard them at all as canon.
And I'm 99% certain that they weren't any of those parenting scenes because they completely and utterly contradict their motto "Hakuna Matata" and from the first film it appears their relationship were bachelor friends, not dads and a son. Plus, I can not see Simba calling, much less accepting, anyone as a father figure after losing Mufasa. Especially after losing him the way he did.

Don't get me wrong, I like parodies and I do have a sense of humour. But I've been a huge, passionate fan of The Lion King since 1995 when I first saw it as a child. That is, it's not just a movie to me - it's also a story that meant a lot to me already as a child and something from my childhood that's left me with many dear memories.

Simba, Mufasa, Scar, Nala, Kiara, and all the other characters in the lion king have virtues to teach. They all have some sensible things or emotions to voice out... disseminate. Yes, it is given that Scar became a sort of a villain but we've got to check his background before we judge him.
Scar was originally named Taka and we will be discovering why later.
Mufasa and Taka always loved each other when they were young but their was one thing that broke their bond: the title of being king. Taka can never be a king because he was born second to Mufasa. Although he tried very hard to outdo his older brother, he really never succeeded. The king Ahadi, their father always favored Mufasa, neglecting his other son, resulting in the major change of character of Taka. Taka grew bitter and hateful. Time passed and Ahadi grew old. Taka got his vengeance then, he got Mufasa and his father alone and with the blinking of an eye, slit old Ahadi's throat. Mufasa and Taka then had a fierce fight. Mufasa scratched the eye of Taka... that's where his scar came from... Mufasa triumphed over his brother once more.

Kiara and Fluffy blend as one cub
Many annoying comments from fans who believe Kopa is Fluffy which isn't true.

Here are 10 different comments from them from Youtube:

1. "that can't be Kiara, in these movies the males are yellow and the females are beige-colored, and that baby is yellow."

2. "that's there first child Kopa....he is a boy and Kiara's older brother."

3. "ok at the end it is not Kiara it is Kopa before the making of the lion king 2 they changed it 2 Kiara instead of being it Kopa =3."

4. "I am not a fan of lion king, but still kopa is true!"

5. "the cub is not Kiara. It's supposed to be Simba's and Nala's son, Kopi. The reason he wasn't in the second because he died as a cub. Sad I know. Look up on the story of Kopi. You'll learn more. Sorry to be a downer."

6. "OMG KOPA" XD (pointing out at Fluffy)

7. "2:18 Here comes Simba and Nala's cub, Kopa. That cub is not really Kiara (I'm not wrong). Kiara is really born on Lion King 2: Simba's Pride."

Here's another one-shoot story I wrote.
Disclaimer : I do (not) own Lion King

“ Nala!, Are you awake ?” whisper Simba, a golden lion cub and the future king of Prideland.
“Yes, “ replied Nala, stepping out of her sleeping spot where she sleep with her mother. “What do you want ? Don’t tell me you had another ‘cool’ place to show me” . Nala was a cream colored cub and well… just another cub from the pride
Recently, Simba and Nala go to the Elephant Graveyard. It’s the place that had been forbidden by Mufasa, the great king of the Prideland who also happen to be Simba’s father. They were chased by three Hyena as soon as they landed their feet on the graveyard. Luckily, King Mufasa come to save them and scarred the Hyenas.
“ Come on, “ samba hissed. “ follow me “.
Sighed, Nala got up and follow Simba’s lead. They arrive at the plain near Priderock. It was dark ‘cause it was in the middle of night.
“So, what is it ? “ Nala asked.

This is fluffy/Kiara
Ok the other night I was just playing a random lion king scene in my head. (Don't ask me why I just do that sometimes). Anyway and It hit me. Think about the first scene in the second film. When timon and pumbaa are saying how they are going to teach the new baby,saying: "look at the little guy". Then rafiki corrects them by saying "it's a girl."

Ok now let's think. If we deleted that scene from the movie the story would flow and nothing would change. So why did they incorporate that in the movie? And the answer is... That's right fluffy was indeed originally supposed to be a boy,I mean think about all of the books, the trading cards everything called it a boy. But then when it came for a sequel they scrapped that idea because they didn't want to how should I put this,they didn't want to repeat the first movie so they shook it up a bit and made it a girl. So that's why timon and pumbaa acted so surprised they were symbolizing everyone out there who thought that the new baby was going to be a boy. But you say,"lionkingartist I'm still not convinced".Ok here's some more proof then. Think back to the circle of life scene where Mufasa meets rafiki and they have a buddy...

its been a while since they had released the lion king in 3d or the movie itslef in genral so lets talk about making the lion king in new Anamtion they use today right here in 2014 a sequel to the Lion king 2 simba's pride would be nice right? yes it would but they would end up using the old anmation instead of the new becuase if they used the new anmation the movie simply would not look right on the count of that i would say they first should redo the movie one at time first the lion king 1 then 2 . we must understand that disney wil l not do so, the piture i provided should give you a understanding of they would look. im sure now days for the kids we see in this world the new anamtion is i would say perfect in there eyes the characters they make today look realthink about it the water on the mountain were the princess from brave climbed and drunk from looked lie real water.
one thing that i dont like is how they made the Lion gaurd for little kids becuase lion king is made for all ages. but even there anmation is like the new ones they use today it doesnt make any since. i think that we should step up and redo the lion knig movies with the anamtion we use today like in...

Then I saw someone running towards my direction. I asked the lioness if she okay?
She Replied With an accent "I'm Alright".
I Asked " Why Are You Running"?
She answered " Hunters they are chasing me I think I've them and I lost my pack and got separated from them".
She started Sobbing.
I answered "I'm sorry."
I asked "What's your name"?
She Replied" Desary."
I promised her "I'll help you get back to your pack"
She replied" Thank You, Thank you, Thank you.

What?

And they don't have a clue.

Who?

They'll fall in love and here's the bottom line:
Our trio's down to two.

Oh.

Ze sweet caress of twilight.
There's magic everywhere.
And with all this romantic atmosphere,
Disaster's in the air!

Can you feel the love tonight?
The peace the evening brings
The world, for once, in perfect harmony
With all its living things.

So many things to tell her,
But how to make her see
The truth about my past? Impossible!
She'd turn away from me.

He's holding back, he's hiding.
But what, I can't decide.
Why won't he be the king I know he is,
The king I see inside?

Can you feel the love tonight?
The peace the evening brings.
The world, for once, in perfect harmony

From the day we arrive on the planet
And, blinking, step into the sun,
There's more to see than can ever be seen,
More to do than can ever be done.
There's far too much to take in here,
More to find than can ever be found.
But the sun rolling high
Through the sapphire sky
Keeps great and small on the endless round.

It's the circle of life.
And it moves us all
Through despair and hope,
Through faith and love.
Till we find our place
On the path unwinding.
In the circle,
The circle of life.

It's the circle of life.
And it moves us all

Nala started humming queen undenied. "Queen undenied. Yeah.'' Nala looked around to see if there was any gazelle or buffalo, and saw nothing. "Wow! How does mother expect me to hunt when there is nothing?' Nala suddenly saw a small figure, Scurrying around in the savannah grass. She crouched down to see more of its figure and found out it was a hare. She pounced on the hare and killed it with her bare sharp claws. She licked blood off her teeth. ''All in a day's work.'' She picked up the hare in her teeth, And runned to look for more prey. ''Oh so the prey must be in the grasslands having their cup of tea!" (Guys, my version of cup of tea meant drinking water okay XD) Nala shouted, '"Grasslands here I come!" Nala ranned laughing into the grasslands and tumbled onto the ground as her tail tip flicked on her head as a swarm of dust fell off her. She saw a strange male lion that looked just like simba. "Huh?' But suddenly nala saw a waterhole full of buffalo then looked back at the male lion. But suddenly nala thought '"One body of buffalo will have to do, Then I can check out that male lion and see if it's simba!" She saw that the male lion was heading towards the jungle, And then...

After nala shouted got it, She looked back as the pride was counting on her and sighed and sang a little song to help her feel better. ''What am I? What is this?'' Her beautiful voice reached the meadows silky wave. ''Why am I starving myself. What am I doing? My pride is counting on me, And I'm counting on myself.. Simba is gone, But really.. I am aware... He's out there all alone.'' Nala kept padding along as she kept singing the song. ''Really? Am I just a lead huntress or am I scar's reign? Heck no. Let's show.. That I'm a lead huntress and very brave!" Birds flew around nala, As it made a smile on her face. Nala leaped onto the rock by the water hole. "I'm gonna be queen undenied! Satisfied for my pride!" Nala's singing suddenly sounded like rythmn. (Please correct me if this is typed wrong.) ''And when the animals all make noises, And shout it all out! I'm queen undenied!" Nala leaped off the rock as all animals followed her lead. "Come on! I'll show you how to get this rock off your head. And it's the way you be queen!'' Nala sang a high note. "Queen undenied!"

Nala looks out to her home, Thinking about her mother. What if her first hunt failed? What if she got herself injured? All those thoughts were really distracting on the hunt, So nala returned home without a scrape of the dinner she really needed. Sarafina saw her starved daughter come home without any food. 'Nala? Did you even hunt?" Nala coughed. 'I'm sorry mother, But my thoughts have distracted me from the hunt. and they were really bad." Nala explained to her mother. Sarafina put an angry look on nalas centermeters. ''Nala. I am not letting you go home emptypaws. You have to fill you're self up!' Nala looked in her mother's eyes in sorrow. "But?'' Sarafina yelled. ''No buts! Now get out there and hunt! Remember nala, You're the lead huntress and the pride needs to eat. Your loyalty and experience in hunting can help us.

Cub Vitani
Vitani has light tan-colored fur that is slightly tinted orange, electric blue eyes with dark eye shades, and a tuft of hair on her head. As a cub, she was briefly the same size but a little older than Kovu. She has very bright fur compared to most of the Outsiders. As a child, her fur was almost orange in some scenes.
As a young adult, she bears a close resemblance to her mother, Zira, and her hair tuft starts to recede as well as gain dark ear rims. She also has freckles, and is thin and lanky, yet very muscular like all the other Outsiders. Her fur becomes more yellow and Pridelander-like, though it stays very bright. She, like Zira, has triangularly-shaped, almost glowing yellow eyes with beady irises. She is more scruffy, though, with thicker eyebrows and slightly longer and unkempt fur.

Personality

As a cub, Vitani is shown to be mocking and snarky, as she doubts Nuka's ability to lead. Like her mother, she is violent, wanting to engage Kovu in a fight as soon as Zira drops him. Unlike Nuka, she doesn't seem to care too much about Kovu being the Chosen One despite not being Scar's son, though her mother has taught her to be hateful...

Kopa got up and shook his body to life. He bounced over to his mum, Nala, and pressed his paw up against her face in an attempt to awaken her. Her eyes fluttered open and she mumbled something under her breath.
"Mum, can I go out to play?" Kopa put on a cheesy grin,"Pu-leeaasee?"
"Your just like your father"
"So is that a yes?"
"Go ahead, but be careful, because if your anything like your father, I'm sure you'll get yourself into lots of mischief!"
Kopa bounded out of the cave opening and strait down into the grassy Savannah. As he was running through the grass he saw a big rock which reminded him of Priderock. He slowly crept over to it then sure it was safe of any dangerous snakes or lizards walked to the top of it and pretended to be his dad ruling over the kingdom.
Suddenly he saw some grass russle in the distance. Curious, he backed down of the rock and into the long grass and ever so quietly moved to see what had made the noise. As he moved closer he climbed upon a smaller rock so he could just peer over the swaying grass. He gasped in surprise and lost his balance tumbling right on to the other lion.

ok i think that vitani's parents is Scar and Nala please don't get angry personally i don't like Scar and Nala together but it would make seance. Hear is what think what happened in the first draft simba was going to be a teen when he left so Nala would have been as well also Nala was meant to have a little brother Mheetu well when Scar was king he could of bribed nala to mate with him saying that he wouldn't kill him.

That's my my first reason my second reason is that vitani looks more like nala then zira color wise fur, eye and nose color.

so what do you think

When Mabaya reached the fresh-kill pile she felt as if someone was watching her,but she decided to ignore it. She was about to grab a field mouse when a rock hit her in the head. She let out a little roar as she placed her paw on her head. She then heard laughter. She looked up and saw a couple of cubs. She growled as they kept laughing. ''Hey''? she asked angrily. ''What was that for. ''?''Oh, nothing we just did it for fun.''the first one said,smiling.''Errrr''she growled. Just then Vitani came over.''Hey,Mabaya''.she said ,smiling . But Mabaya ignored her. ''Hey Mabaya are you okay''.Vitani asked, and then she realized what Mabaya was looking at.''Hey''.Vitani roared at the two cubs'' Leave her alone.'' The two cubs exchanged glances and then the first one said' 'aw man , can't we just have fun?''.''No''Vitani said angrily' 'Man, why do you have to be such a party pooper?'' asked the second one. ''I'm not being a party pooper, I'm just saying you should stop throwing rocks at everybody.'' ''No way!'' the first one exclaimed. ''Fine,I will just tell my mother what you guys have been doing''.

"Fluffy"
Fluffy is what the cub at the end of The Lion King is called.The name was jokingly given to the cub by the film makers during the production of The Lion King. It was never meant to be the cub's final name.

Appearance
Fluffy looks almost exactly like Simba did as an infant cub: yellow eyes, golden-brown fur, tan underbelly and a pink nose. The Major difference is that Fluffy has dark ear rings and Simba did not as an infant.

Girl or Boy?
Because the gender of the cub is never officially cited by it's creators, the question often arises whether the film makers intended Fluffy to be a boy or a girl - but the chances are they did not bother to decide it's gender because they indeed didn't announce any such decision on the commentary track and even gave it a unisex nickname. This chance is supported also by how they reveal in making-of documentaries that they didn't believe in the film's success, which supports the chance that no sequel was intended and thus they didn't bother to decide a gender for the cub.

The accurate category for it is: a family film.
The main reason why I wish to discuss this topic is that people who think of this (and Disney classics in general) as kids' films, judge and try to tell off people who hold these films in adult standards and discuss them in depth and seriously.
I will dig into The Lion King specifically later, but first let me start with a general look into the topic.

This article is not meant to offend anyone, but merely to offer another point of view.

I think the three main reasons why many people put these films down as nothing but kids' films, are:
1.) It's from Disney.
2.) It's animated/cartoon.
3.) It has (anthropomorphic) animals as characters instead of humans.

But come on, now. Would you stop and think for a little longer than that, please?

Yes, this film was produced by The Walt Disney Company. But whenever has animated characters and stories created in Disney's name, been suitable only for children or even mainly? They've had aspects and themes intriguing for and speaking to adults as well, some the kind children couldn't even understand or...

Now, I'm not saying that The Lion King 2: SImba's Pride doesn't have some problems. Because it does. I'm only saying that I don't think it has plot holes. Most of the following arguments I originally posted at IMDB message board in a debate, as VampireOutlaw.

You see, if something that's left untold does not affect the plot at all, then it's not a hole in the story but only something that could be further explained just for the interest of it.
I'm starting to think this film does not have plot holes at all - that its only continuity problem is that they remade the ceremony scene and the cub's design.

I think I can disprove the claimed plot holes:

"Kiara looks entirely different from the cub at the end of TLK, and the ceremonies are also obviously different. What happened to the other cub?"

There is no other cub; in the first film's commentary track, that ending cub was refered to as "Fluffy" with no decided gender, and then in this film's official trailer they used "Fluffy" as baby Kiara, and in a magazine interview confirmed that "Fluffy" and Kiara are the same character. So in fact this is not a plot...

From the day we arrive on the planet
And blinking, step into the sun
There's more to see than can ever be seen
More to do than can ever be done
There's far too much to take in here
More to find than can ever be found
But the sun rolling high
Through the sapphire sky
Keeps great and small on the endless round

It's the circle of life
And it moves us all
Through despair and hope
Through faith and love
Till we find our place
On the path unwinding

The circle of life

But thick as you are, pay attention
My words are a matter of pride

It's clear from your vacant expressions
The lights are not all on upstairs
But we're talking kings and successions
Even you can't be caught unawares

So prepare for a chance of a lifetime
Be prepared for sensational news
A shining new era

[Scar:] Just listen to teacher
I know it sounds sordid

When at last I am given my dues!
And injustice deliciously squared
Be prepared!

I mean no affiance to those who love the lion king 2. And please don't leave any nasty comments, thank you.

First off, the animation.
The animation in the lion king 2 is totally horrible. Simba is darker (And somewhere in the movie his eyes are actualy blue!) , Nala is to bright and her eyes are to blue, Timon is dark and Pumba is dark and looks disgusting. The only charicters that looked like they did in the first movie were Scar and Mufasa. The wildebeests in the nightmare scene looked like wolves! I actually think that that the animators took more time and work in drawing the new characters than the old ones.Just look!

Pride Rock appeared menacing in the dark of midnight, black clouds circling the structure. The air stood completely still, along with the tall grass. Then, in the blink of an eye, it all changed. Cristal drops of rain turned to giant diamonds, shattering on the savannah ground. The still air turned into frightening winds, blowing away branches from trees. The breath-taking silence was broken by a roar of pain.

In the den of Pride Rock, all crowded a dark brown lioness. She was breathing heavily,her black-rimmed ears pinned sharply back. She dug her claws into the ground, gasping it tightly.

"It's alright, it is all okay." Assured a large, tan lion. His black mane wet from the rain. "Hang in there Akari." The lion had his ears pinned aswell, his golden eyes flodded with nervousness.

An hour passed after more roars of pain, more whispers of reassurance, and more nervouse glares. Suddenly, it all stopped. Roars were pushed away by large breaths, whisperes were silenced by happy chatter, andglares were replaced by relieved sighs.

You can survive without water for three days.” replied Tigress, as she continued to look ahead for the next landmark. “Come on, Tigress.” Crane continued, “We’ve been walking all day and found nothing.” Meanwhile, Monkey swung from tree to tree above them. “I have to agree with Crane on this one. We need water, and I don’t see any source anywhere nearby.” “Guys, we’re almost there.” Tigress assured them. Crane sighed. “You said that an hour ago.” he whined. Suddenly, the trio came upon a clearing, and before Tigress could answer, the next landmark stood before them.

    The new landmark was a statue in the shape of an unusual symbol, which none of the three recognized. “This is it?!” exclaimed Crane, “We came all the way out here for this?!” “What is this supposed to mean?!” Monkey continued, “It looks somebody messed up on...

1. Simba.

I think that Simba is very handsom, sweet, kind, brave, wise, and understanding. He was adorable as a cub and strong and handsome as an adult.
I can relate to Simba in many ways some more than others but mainly the fact that he had to go through alot of hardships and trama in his life time. I somtimes I can't forgive others for what they did to me or my family in the past.

2.Mufasa

I love Mufasa's love that he shows twords his people and a family. And his willingness to sacrifice and risk his life to save his famaly from danger.

3.Scar

We don't know alot about Scar's mysterious past and how he became the selfish Scar that we see in the movie.
To me Scar is a very handsome lion. He is very proper, slick, sly, coniving, and charming. (I know that some people may disagree with me)
I also love Scar's voice.

4.Nala

The lioness that is comited and dedicated to her pride and mate. She was the one that left the pride to find help. She is the one that keeped on giving Simba advice in both movies.

Timon looked pretty darn beaten and bruised after being the target for the two lionesses’ hunting practices the day before. “I’m doing just great!” he said sarcastically and angrily, as he walked along the forest floor weakly, “I’m glad that I could help you ladies with all your hunting exercises!” “Come on, Timon. It wasn’t that bad.” Kiara assured him. “You can say that. But, you don’t know the half of it!” Timon replied. “At least you had a good night’s sleep.” Nala contiuned. “Right… I would have if I could have slept on my back!” Timon yelled.

IMPORTANT!!! --> This article is NOT saying that AU fanfiction isn't cool or shouldn't exist. Personally I LOVE writing alternate universe fanfiction and write a lot of it myself to study what fun other paths can bring. But I let my ideas and stories be known as AU fanfiction and nothing more or less. And I DO still write on and like to discuss the actual official stories as well.

As in, this article's topic is something I wish to discuss for two reasons:

1.) The movies are the ONLY media created by Disney and Disney has ignored the books and comics whenever talking about their movies and obviously in the creation of the sequel film, finally downright denying the books by their choices.

As in, it's not important what all Disney owns, what all is in their copyrights. What is important is that Disney apparently hoped to entertain and inspire people with their own seperate entity instead of mixing their own visions and the outsiders'.

Because this forum's purpose may have been misunderstood...I give you a rephrased info of what it's all about:

A new kind of forum for discussion about everything The Lion King, including the movies, the books, the comics, fan visions, personal canons and much more!

The difference to other forums on this franchise is that on The Lion King Origin Forums every member ought to have accepted the movies' creators' words as the truth for the movies, and all the spinn-off stuff as just alternate storylines that we can have fun with in discussions and art.

This means that on The Lion King Origin Forums you can prefer against the official facts and share your preference - but not argue and downright believe against Disney's official confirmations.

Because without that we can clearly and constuctively discuss the official sotry and canon like Disney meant it to be, and next to it discuss the spinn-offs like they were really made, and discuss the movie/spinn-off combinations through mere fanfiction visions. And that way we are not likely to end up in confusion and hateful arguing - at least not over...

Chapter 1 – The Huntress

    For decades, the topic of Lion vs. Tiger has been highly debated, with people taking one side or being neutral. People have considered them to be natural rivals. A jungle in an unspecified location, in the animation world, was about to test that theory…

    “Mother. Why have you brought me here to this jungle?” asked Kiara, as her and Nala entered the jungle. “I’ve told you several times, Kiara.” Nala replied, “I’ve brought you here to improve your hunting skills. A jungle is the perfect place to train you.” Kiara still looked puzzled. “Why? We live in a savannah, and rarely venture into jungles.” Nala took a deep breath, and answered, “You see, Kiara. A jungle is full of obstacles. You will run into many obstacles as you hunt in the savannah.” Kiara interrupted, “Oh, I get it. This training is more like some kind of obstacle course.” “Yes.” Nala assured her. “Cool. If only Kovu and daddy was here.” said Kiara. “They are quite busy at the moment, and I think we could use a little mother and...

Kodonah and Sheekra were best friends. "Sheekra,wanna go somewhere really cool!" Kodonah said. "Not until the ceremony is over." Sheekra said. "Fine." Kovu was exited. The ceremony was over.

Kiara had realized while she was holding her cub, Simba should still be king for a few more days. "Father we have kings we have queens but I am not queen yet mother is queen and you are king. Kovu,Kopa you will be king in a few days." Kiara just had to say that until her cub has the ceremony. A few days later Rafiki said, "It is time Kiara!" Kiara roared and so did Kovu they had finally become king and queen(and so were Vitani and Kopa. A few minutes later Kodonah was being held up and so was Kitani (Kopa's son.) After a month Kidonah and Kitani were fully grown cubs. Kidonah was like Kiara. One day Kidonah was about to leave Pride Rock."Woah,where do you think you're going in such a hurry." Kovu said. Kovu grabbed her by the tail. "Dad,let go I'm a boy I think I can travel on my own!"

It was a sweet warm day in the Pridelands. Everything seemed just right."Kovu have you seen Kopa?" Kiara said. "No,and we still have not figured who will be king." "We have voted it with the lionesses and it was equal it can be possible that you both will be king." Kiara said. " That looks fair I think we should try it and see how it goes."Kovu said."Hey you guys. I need to tell you something......Vitani is pregnant!" Kopa said. "Kopa congrats! So are we!" Kiara said. 9 months later. It was going well with Kovu and Kopa being king. There was a slight scream by the gorge. "Kiara and Vitani are down there! Simba said. They ran as fast as they could! It wasn't what they thought happened,Kiara and Vitani had their babies. "Kiara what should we name him?" Kovu said "Kodonah,Kodonah it sounds right.

The
LION KING 4 - If given a chance

The sun was rising above the skyline shining all over the kingdom.
Simba was watching over the Pride lands from the summit of the Pride Rock with a very solemn expression. Nala came next to him having the same solemn look. Something was going on.
Kovu came out of the cave taking a deep breath. Simba turned around and told him:
“It is time.“
Kiara appeared at the entrance of the cave with tears in her eyes:
“Time?”
“It’s time for you to take your place in the circle of life! “
Meanwhile, the lionesses came out of the cave and set on both sides of the rock. Nala urged them to go, looking confident at the summit of the Pride Rock. Kiara and Kovu walked proudly among the lionesses that were bowing their heads while they moving besides them. They stopped on the summit, took a last look back and their young, powerful roars were heard by all the creatures in the Pride lands. They looked back again but now Simba and Nala were not there anymore. They have understood that now,...

Let's start with the fact how Kopa was never and is not canon nor a movie character at all: link.

But some people think that the more believers Kopa has the more real he'll become. As in that if many enough believe in him as canon regardless of Disney saying he's not, Disney would make him into what those believers want him to be.

Well, Kopa believers: If I were you, I wouldn't hold my breath. And here's why.

The books and Kopa are outsider written and look what happened: Disney approved him for profit and childrens' entertainment in books known only in USA and did not even refer to him in the movie. Whereas their own creation (Fluffy/Kiara) they threw into the main stream known world wide. They chose their own creation over fanon creation when they saw The Lion King became a huge success.

A company the size and popularity of Disney doesn't have to remark its fans likings. It does whatever it wants and just hopes many enough people like their decision. And hence the size and popularity there are always billions who do like it. Which results in Disney getting...

"The cub at the end was/is a male/Kopa because the official books say so!!!"
NOT.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~

1. Most of the official books from 1994 state it's a boy, but it matters not because link is equally official and states it's a girl!

2. The official book "A Tale of Two Brothers" wherein Kopa first appears, tells a story of Rafiki arriving to Pridelands for the first time when Mufasa is already a teenager. But link is equally official and states that Rafiki had met Mufasa when Mufasa was a cub. As the last mentioned is equeally possible truth and contradicts Kopa's family history, the cub in the film is not Kopa.

3. The official book "A Tale of Two Brothers" wherein Kopa first appears, states that Mufasa's father named Zazu's mother and every future generation of her family as the stewarts to the kings of Pridelands. But the equally official book "Friends In Need" states that Mufasa personally named Zazu as his stewart after he personally remarked the bird's...

I've never really written a reviewing article on this matter about those books. So here I go. This topic has been debated ALOT lately in the online fandom so I thought I'd gather the most crucial facts from the midst of the confusing debates and try to address them through common sense point of view.

1. The Six New Adventures were released among many other books that contradict the SNA books.
----> So why should the SNA be any more canon/semi-canon than one of the other books?

2. The Six New Adventures were not written by those people who created the canon film.
----> And the first book in the series is its author's original story. His official personal web site says so. Apparently Disney hired bunch of childrens' books authors to make up stories. So how could the books be canon/semi-canon when the stories are not from the canon's creators' iimagination?

3. The canon film's creators called the cub at the end "Fluffy" and made no gender reference. This happened AFTER a boy/Kopa was visioned and released in the books.

This is NOT another rant about canon. No. This is about something I find rather sad instead of annoying.

Why doess this fandom's situation sadden me? Why do I take this so seriously? Why do I bother writing a lengthy article like this? Because I don't think Disney is ALL about enrichening people's life and encouraging creativity. It is essentially also about teaching values and morals. The whole point of this article is to remind people of that and how because of that any conspiracy theories and fan-made stories should not be falsely claimed as what really happened.

I honestly believe Disney never hopes that fans' creativity would alter and over-shadow the true means of their films by getting claimed as part of official stories with conspiracy theories.

This is just my opinion and I may or may not be wrong in my point of view. No offense intended.

First of all, let me be more specific; I don't think Kopa as a character is a problem. It's the way he's treated by his fans.

Out of all the characters in both the Lion King movies, Mufasa, Simba & Kovu. I have nicknamed them "The Three Kings" for the sake of this article.

Mufasa

Mufasa, the only one the unfortunately, died an untimely death.

He was the wise one of the bunch. It almost seemed like Mufasa knew what would happen in the future.

An example of this is this conversation between Mufasa and

Simba;Young Simba: We're pals, right?
Mufasa: Right.
Young Simba: And we'll always be together, right?
Mufasa: Simba, let me tell you something my father told me. Look at the stars. The great kings of the past are up there, watching over us.
Young Simba: Really?
Mufasa: Yes. So whenever you feel alone, just remember that those kings will always be there to guide you. And so will I.

He knew exactly what to say to make Simba feel better, but in a way as not to startle him. Simba would remember this conversation for the rest of his life. In this way, he was a great parent. He had control over Simbas curiosity, and if Scar wasn't out for sabotage, Simba would...

I've been wanting to do this for a long time, so here I go. My little character psychology analysis on the three most crucial characters for the official story. In a way this results in Simba born -> Scar the bad guy -> Simba the bad guy -> Zira the bad guy -> the being bad ends with Simba growing into his father's son.

SCAR:
Nothing official is known about his past, but we can assume something made him want to be the king perhaps more than his brother ever did. I personally like to think it was not any remarkable amount of neglect by their father, but just Scar's desire for freedom and power. He was a dominating, highly intelligent and proud person himself which already in itself would be enough for a kingship to be your ultimate dream but it could be that he was much younger than Mufasa, and Mufasa as the big brother acted too much big-brotehrly, meaning well but causing his little brother some more power/freedom complex.

I don't think Scar tried to gain the crown in any dangerous way at any point before the film, I think he was patient enough to wait in the line because he had remarkable power and freedom already with his...

I don't think so. And as canon I now mean the sequel movie The Lion King 2: Simba's Pride because it's the main source for those theories.

It's true, they can't show every little detail about crucial plot parts in a film. But what they can do is refer to everything crucial. Like, in this case, if there had been another cub before Kiara, they could've and would've said so in the film.

In example, they could've had Simba and Nala briefly discuss it instead of how much Kiara reminds them of Simba. Or, combined the two topics.

Nala: "She's just like you when you were young."
Simba could've replied "Exactly! Remember how our son Kopa was just like me and he disappeared/got killed by the outlanders! And remember all those danger we got ourselves into!"

I mean, Kiara was far away by that point--the discussion was free to be about anything in the world--and adding that one line would've taken less than five seconds of their minuete limit. And instead of having Nala be careless, they could've had her walk away worried/sorrowful indtead of walking away carelessly.

Kopa and Kiara As cubs
A second part from Lion king 3 i made :D Hope you like this. :D!!!




It was already afternoon, every body settled in the cave to hear Kopa's story from the begin-ing when he got lost. He sat beside Vitani, they seemed to be all cuddled up.

Kopa: It all Started when Zira after attacked me. She put me on a rock by the river, where nobody would see me, she washed herself because if any-one knew it was her, she would have been killed. Later on that day, I saw my-self on the rock but i was so dizzy every-thing was circling around.

Kiara: You mean the river by the mountin?

Kopa: Nodds I saw a shape of a Lion but i was not sure who that was, my vision was so blury. The lion then made a roar and left, i wasn't sure what was happening though. Another male Lion took me to his pride from the wild-Lands, I was well cared, But as i grew up i decided to go back to my own pride where my Family was and i saw Timon and Pumba looking for bugs!!

Surprisingly few have heard about Fluffy and many of those who have, are confused with all the books and the sequel and stuff. Here's the story digging into facts of the timeline and looks, as well as the official words by the film's makers.

I originally created this article to The Lion King Wiki as SuperBabySimba, but as Wikis can be edited by anyone who is confused and prefers daydreams over facts, I chose to post this original version here to help those who are interested. :)

FLUFFY'S STORY

"Let's just end on the next generation. Here's Fluffy, Simba and Nala's new little cub. Let's just end on Fluffy."
—The Lion King film makers, on the 1995 commentary track of the film, refering to the cub at the end.

Fluffy is what the cub at the end of The Lion King film was officially called until later given the identity of Kiara in the official storyline.

Appearance

Fluffy looks a lot like its father Simba did as a baby. It has very similar facial features, golden brown fur, paler toes, and big, black pupils without irises. But couple of noticable differences...

The sky was reddish pink, it was turning morning the animals lined up for Kiara and Kovu's official wedding at the Pride Lands, Vitani stood up looking proud at her brother. Wind blew againts her brownish-gold fur and through her bangs as she watched her brother and the other lionesses roar. Kiara and Kovu stepped up the pride rock and roared as the animals went wild. Kiara and Kovu hugged each other as Nala and Simba roared with them.


Later on, Simba and Nala were walking along the side of the lake and took a big drink. Simba then saw a figure but the sun was shining bright which he did not able to see, the figure was like a lion who had a goldish-brown fur. Simba blinked and that figure was gone, He followed nala back to the Pride rock. He has been seeing figures every morning that always seemed to dis-appear after he blinked, he had dreams of his son, Kopa but he was all adult with a mane like his and the eyes that was blue with a pink nose. He some-times felt bad for Vitani for her lost but...

These are of course only my own, personal TOP10 reasons for loving it. :)

1. It's very unlike your standard Disney cartoon. It's dark and psychologically deep and complex story and doesn't sugar coat anything. Even the dead stay dead. Apart from Mufasa's ghost coming to guide Simba, but he was still dead! And unlike usually, the "resurrection" actually works for the story instead of being there to make kids happy. I mean, without the ghost scene the story would've been very different.

2. It bases on Shakespeare's 'Hamlet' mixed with a bit of the story of Moses from the Bible. That makes the story and character psychology awfully fascinating.

3. Simba is a wonderful hero character. Again, not Disney's typical, misunderstood, innocent person who becomes the hero. He actually has flaws that make him not appear as a potential hero, and he has character development.

4. The main villain isn't made into a clown. In fact he is a highly intelligent and ruthless and cunning. Also, his obsession, selfishness and greediness doesn't just exist, it actually affects his surroundings. And yet his very first line...

I'm not denying the characters' existence in the general TLK universe. This post speaks for the movie universe only.
Please forgive me the frustrated tone. No offense intented to anyone. For now this fandom has just made me so frustrated because it just can't draw a line anywhere when it comes to what is official/canon.

There's a reason why there are the different terms; canon, semi-canon, fanfiction. Because there's a difference and the difference matters. I personally welcome fanfiction with open arms into my interests in fandoms - but I do find it also awfully important that the facts are kept straight in official/canon vs. fanfiction. And in this fandom the facts are so messed up.

"Scar killed Mheetu! It is true! Just search google!" Since when was random Google search results the Truth? I think you'll find the truth a whole lot less dranatic. And "Zira killed Kopa and that's why-" Blah blah BLAH. Then why doesn't the film refer to any cub or murder with so much as half a word?! Perhaps because Zira DIDN'T kill a cub. "Why haven't they made a movie where they explain what happened to Kopa?!" Because nothing happened to Kopa...

The Cast.
In alphabetical order, with translations of the names where applicable:-

Banzai [Skulk, Lurk]: Most quick-tempered of the crows. Best with
comebacks. Offsets Shenzi and Ed quite well.
Ed: The stupidest crow. Has a Bill the Cat stare.
Noted by warts on the tongue. Too stupid or slow to lie at the
right time.
Kiara: Dege {original Simba}'s and Nala's chick. She completes the Circle.
Mufasa: Current King of the Party Lands. Well-built Great Hornbill. Big beak.
Brown eyes. Father of Dege. Elder brother of Scar.
Nala: Friend and companion of Dege. She can pin Dege in a fight. As
an adult she and Dege fall in love, prolonging a tradition they
had refused as chicks.
Pumbaa [Simpleton]: A well-padded squirrel and friend of Timon. A
little slow, but when he catches on, it's surprising what he
can do. Has a flatulence problem.

I have this on VHS for about 10 or maybe 15 years and I absolutely love it. The story tells the tale of a young cub who is framed for the murder of his father Mufassa(actually Scar killed him with the stampedes) who runs away and befriends Timon & Pumpaa. From the opening scenes to the break taking music and music by Elton John who did the song Can You Feel The Love Tonight, The Lion King was the best Disney movie of our time, winner of 2 Oscars back in 1995 I highly recommend all Disney lovers to watch this but if you have any children then beware because some scenes may make them upset especially the part where Mufassa dies as well as some scary scenes otherwise than that it’s a great movie.

I just stumbled over the seemingly popular interpretation that Mufasa's ghost was only in Simba's mind and that's why he didn't tell the truth about how he died. I was like 'Whaaaat?!' That never crossed my mind, in all these 15 years.

I guess it is kinda left up to the viewers interpretation in the film but Mufasa truly appearing to guide his son, fits the theme of the story much better than just Simba's imagination.

Rafiki had summoned him. You know Rafiki was able to do weird stuff, such as seeing that Simba is alive and where to find him, by doing something to the dust in the wind that had been sent out by Simba. And I think Rafiki's line about the strange wather, right after Mufasa's spirit was gone, implies that Rafiki saw him too - and so it indeed was not in Simba's head, but summoned by Rafiki.

It was perfectly calm before Rafiki tells Simba to look harder at his reflection. Then the reflection changes, coulds gather and wind blows and all that and suddenly it's all calm again right after Mufasa disappears. A weather being strange suddenly and exactly the duration of someone's "innet vision" would be highly unlikely as it would...

When the film was released there was a stir in Japan. The film was very similar to the well known anime series 'Kimba the White Lion'. First there is the obvious similarity in names (Simba and Kimba). Also, both had a baboon as a shaman. But the similarities don't end there, both had an evil uncle - 'Scar' in the movie and 'Claw' in the series - as well as henchman hyenas. Plus a pose by a king on a rock. The possible lawsuit was dropped, because Osamu Tezuka's (the producer's) widow said that he would have been flattered that Disney was inspired by the series.

The film's original opening was going to be a quiet dialogue-heavy sequence. Hans Zimmer (the composer) made an extended version of 'Circle of Life' to allow for some cuts from the film. The animators were very impressed with his work and decided the change the beginning so that the could use Zimmer's complete work.

Simba says to his uncle Scar 'You're so weird!' To which Scar replied: 'You have no idea.' Jeremy Irons (the voice of Scar) gave this same response in the 1990 film 'Reversal of Fortune'.

"Wow Grandpa did that scare them off?"
Simba laughed heartily at his granddaughter and said "No, Dear One I'm afraid it didn't."
Kairia asked confused "But Grandpa if it didn't work then how did you and Grandma get away?"
Simba laid down next to Kairia and replied "Well, after my roar didn't scare them off I truly thought me and grandma were done for then my father came to our rescue. It was very scary but also exciting, Dad made those hyenas run to the ends of the earth!"
Kairia laughed and said "Grandpa that was a great story,can you tell me another one?" Just as Simba was getting ready to tell his granddaughter another story Kiara his daughter and reigning queen of the pride lands found them sitting on the summit of Pride Rock,
