Who doesn’t know the story of The Lion King? When it was first released in 1994, Disney’s 32nd animated classic The Lion King took the world by storm, amazing audiences with its intensity, music and hand drawn artwork. The strong storyline, and the brave step of depicting Simba’s father’s tragic fall were enough to make most of us overlook the fact that a lion cub can’t possibly grow big and strong on a diet of grubs and moths.
The story of The Lion King
Simba is born into lion royalty but is led astray by his crooked Uncle Scar, a pack of hungry hyenas and bumbling companions Pumba and Timone. He discovers that he is destined to become a great king in his own right but to do so he must confront his enemies and stop running away from his problems.
