In one scene, Kovu and Kiara look at their reflections and Kovu says to Kiara "Look. We are one." in a racy "after marriage" manner. Non-sexual.

Soon after, Kovu says to Kiara "We'll run away together, and start a pride all our own". But most children probably wouldn't fully understand it.


Zira's lionesses surround Simba and then attack him, biting at him as he swats them away. Kovu tries to help, but is kicked aside and momentarily knocked out. Simba then fights many of them, and tries to escape up a hill of loose logs, while Nuka chases him from behind. Simba gets away, but Nuka falls and is crushed by some falling logs, and eventually dies.

There are violence of the lions fighting each other, scratching, biting. Not graphic at all and soon ends when Kiara and Kovu jump to both separate the warring parties and demand they stop the fight.

Nuka is often battered or bruised for comedy. No blood

Kiara attacks Zira as Zira tries to attack Simba. The two fall then Zira hangs for dear life then she falls in the flooding water.

There are some "cut" scenes that weren't added in the movie because they were dark:

Kiara offers to help Zira but Zira smiles and says "No. Never" and falls in the water, commiting suicide.

Nuka gets crushed by logs and tells Zira that he finally got her attention then he dies.




The lions' roars may scare very young children. One in particular could be a jump scare. Cub Kovu crouches to play with Kiara but Simba lands right in front of him roaring above him, before Zira retaliates with her own roar.

A minute or so scene features young Kiara and Kovu barely escaping an onslaught of crocodiles that bite at, chase after, and nearly get the two young lions (on the crocs' backs, in the water, up some short trees, etc...).

After Nuka dies, Zira mourns and slashes a scar on Kovu's face which looks exactly like Scar's old disfigurement. Zira blames her surviving son for Nuku's death, but Kovu realizes he is being unjustly accused and stands up to his mother for the first time before he flees. However, when Kovu tries to return to the Pride Lands, a furious Simba refuses to accept his explanation and casts him out in a harrowing gauntlet of animals striking him.

Kiara protests this treatment and denounces her father in anguish before running away.

Ziras lullaby openly describes death and warfare. No stronger than your average villeins song but will scare youngsters or those sensitive

Zira is shown to be obsessed with pain and vengeance. Overall: 8/50
