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.

"Vitani" was originally "Shetani." It is possible to hear characters refer to her by that name. It means "Devil" in Kiswahili, however, and Disney may have thought it was inappropriate, thereby changing it to something a little less offensive. "Vitani" has no meaning in the Kiswahili language, from which most of the characters' names are drawn. See more »
Just before 'Upendi', as Rafiki sticks his hand out of the grass, the fur on Kovu's elbow disappears, then reappears. See more »

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!
