Simba and Nala have a daughter, Kiara. Timon and Pumbaa are assigned to be her babysitters, but she easily escapes their care and ventures into the forbidden lands. There she meets a lion cub named Kovu and they become friends. What she and her parents do not know is that Kovu is the son of Zira - a banished follower of the now-dead Scar. She plans to raise Kovu to overthrow Simba and become the king of the Pride Lands. This tests not only Kiara and Kovu's relationship as they mature, but Simba's relationship with his daughter.

In an earlier version, Simba was actually going to be killed by the Outlanders. It was probably not included in the film with Simba surviving the whole way through to avoid a similar tragedy from what had happened to Mufasa in the first film. See more »

Stay out of this!
Daddy, this has to stop.
You're even more pathetic than you are. Get out of the way!
You won't hurt Kirara or Simba! Not while I'm here.
Why are you doing this?
A wise king once told me, "We are one." I didn't understand him then. But now I do.

At one point in the credits it says, "This film would not have been possible without the inspiration from the original motion picture and the work of its talented artists and animators.", and dedication appears. This feature copying from Pocahontas II (1998) during their credits. See more »
Simba's Pride may be the first of Disney's sequels with a soundtrack worth purchasing. The music was very good and the art was also most impressive. The only voice I wasn't completely satisfied with was Edward Hibbert as Zazu. Even I could have made a better clone for Rowan Atkinson. The script was somewhat rough, and some of the scenes had some unnecessarily dark undertones, but I still believe this to be the best made sequel yet - thanks largely to some very good songs. Keep it up, Disney!
