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

In a scrapped scene, young Kovu was shown playing with a bug, and was scolded by his mother Zira for letting it go rather than killing it when he was finished playing with it. 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

[the spirit of Mufasa shows his plan to bring peace to the Pridelander/Outlander feud]
Rafiki: What? Kovu, Kiara together? This is the plan? Are you crazy? This will never work! Oh Mufasa, you've been up there too long, your head is in the clouds!

Almost as good as the original, with a brilliant song!
20 May 2007 | by (Scotland) – See all my reviews

The five main reasons I like this film: 1. The song "We Are One" is a spectacular and I prefer it to all of the songs in the first film! 2. Kiara is a really good character and so is Kovu! I also like Nala in this one, although I prefer her in the last Lion King film. 3. I prefer this one's plot to the one in the first film! I think it's slightly more planned out than the last one's plot. 4. The animation is really good! There's one bit where Kiara and Kovu jump into the air and they animate it so well it looks - spooky! 5. It's a really good sequel for all the fans of the first film! Enjoy! :)

Kiara is the future queen, unfortunately for Simba, she is in love with an outsider, whom she is forbidden to marry. Kovu is also supposed to "follow in Scar's pawprints"...
