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.Written by
Vitani is one of the few if only cubs who are actually obedient to their parents and does not appear to have a headstrong side, unlike Nuka (who neglects his mother's orders to watch over Kovu), Kovu (who promptly leaves the Outlands into a place he's not allowed), Kiara (who does the exact same thing), and Simba (who deliberately disobeys his father to check out the Elephant Graveyard). Vitani appears to be totally devoted to her mother's plot, until the final moments of the film. The second cub to act obediently to their parents is Kion, as in "The Lion Guard: Return of the Roar", Kion was reluctant to enter the Outlands, hinting that he was informed by Simba of the dangers there.

Ah, Pumba. Look at that little guy! A chip off the old block. And you gotta know who's gonna raise him.
Okay, sure. Get technical. But who's gonna teach him the real important stuff? Like how to belch.
And dig for grubs. I'm telling you, buddy, it's gonna be like old times. You, me and the little guy.
It is a girl.

After Kiara conviences Kovu to go back to the Pride Lands, Kovu says, "Race you back!" They both laugh and run off together. In the final version, there is no such line or scene. See more »
A very powerful sequel to a very powerful and the best Disney movie. Kovu and Kiara teach us how powerful and strong the love is. Like TLK 1, TLK 2 bring us good songs, especially Love Will Find A Way and He Lives In You. The new characters are very good, the villain Zira is cruel, the poor Nuka dies trying to prove his braveness and Vitani...well she's not a real villain like all the other outlanders. Unfortunately, they didn't give a good number of lines to Zazu and Nala, especially Zazu - he have less lines than Nala. But every good movie sometimes commit little mistakes. Well, The Lion King 3 is confirmed (2002) and I can't wait to watch this new movie, and I hope TLK 3 being so good like TLK 1 and TLK 2.
