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.

There are many similarities to the original Lion King. 'Simba' warns 'Kiara' to stay away from the out lands , just like 'Mufusa' had warned a young 'Simba'. When Kira, stumbles into the out lands she forgets her father's warning and wanders through the forbidden territory just like a young 'Simba' and 'Nala' did when they explored The Elephant Graveyard. The My Lullaby song is very similar to the 'Be Prepared' song. See more »
(at around 20 mins) When Kovu falls over onto his back to Zira lecturing him on the Pride Landers, Kovu backs up along the bare ground and then starts to sit up, and cowers down again. The background artists forgot to put in the rock that he would be backed up against - his ears flatten against the invisi-rock. See more »
It's over, Simba! I have dreamed of nothing else for years!
[speaking to himself]
Boy, does she need a hobby.

I surprised how I liked this one. My friends told me it's terrible, but I don't think so! Compare this one to Pocahontas: Journey to a new world, The return of Jaffar, or any other animated movie sequel, it's a way better!!! The Lion King I. is quite possibly the best animated movie ever made, so of course it can't be compared to the original. But in its own, it's still pretty good. I think Kovu is a cool character, he was my favorite. I've read on the messageboards that Simba was annoying in the sequel... but think about what things happened to him in the first film, and his overprotecting will be understandable. Unfortunately, the songs are pretty forgettable, except for 'He lives in you'. This film is good at all, give it a chance and watch it!
