Storyline

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.

Trivia

Suzanne Pleshette and Jason Marsden portray mother and son, Zira and Kovu. Three years following this film, the two actors went on to voice characters with a similar relationship in the award winning Hayao Miyazaki animated feature, "Spirited Away." See more »

Goofs

Okapis appear several times in the film. Whilst these animals are native to Africa, they live in dense rainforest, not on the plains where lions are found (and where they appear in the film). They would never naturally encounter lions. See more »

Quotes

Kiara: [about letting Kovu return to the Pridelands] Daddy, please! Reconsider!
Simba: You will not go anywhere without an escort from now on.
Kiara: No! That's not ...
Simba: He used you to get to me!
Kiara: No! He loves me, for *me*!
Simba: Because you are *my* daughter! You will not leave Pride Rock. You will stay where I can keep an eye on you - away from him!
Kiara: You don't know him!
Simba: I know he's following in Scar's pawprints, and I must follow in my father's.
Kiara: You will *never* be Mufassa!
[Simba is horrified; Kiara runs off, crying]

Why is this Movie Given So Much Crap?
7 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I don't understand why this movie is regarded to as trash. Of course it is not as good as the first movie but it comes pretty stinkin close! The animation is actually equal too the quality of the original movie. I think that it is the most perfect Disney sequel ever! It is a very interesting story that shows Simba as a father. It is cool because you get to see Simba has now become basically, like his father. Every time I see this movie, I can feel that Simba has the same sense of power that Mufasa had. It has a fun and sweet story line and a great ending. When this movie was being made, the goal was to create a sequel to a movie that everyone loves so that they could spend more time with the characters. I think (despite what everyone say's) they created an awesome, spectacular Disney film!
