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" 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 »
(at around 50 mins) When Kovu follows Simba to the cave, they're close to the cave entrance, almost inside it. But when it crosses to Vitani's viewpoint, Simba and Kovu are clearly a long distance from the cave. See more »
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.
[They both faint]

Jim Cummings and James Earl Jones as the character Mufasa and Scar, are listed in the end credits. Although the character he is does not appear in the film. He appears with dreaming nightmare sequence. See more »
Stinger: Showed after the credits that was not in the final version. Timon and Pumbaa are in the Outlands chowing down on bugs. Pumbaa shouts "Hakuna Matata!" Timon says "Outlands, shmoutlands... this place is better than Disneyland!" Then a bug flies into shot and flits from side to side like Tinker-Bell in the traditional Disney transition-out sequence.

This is a fantastic sequel, just fantastic, but I'll start with the flaws. 1. Simba has become completely paranoid and that pisses me off. He's no longer cool until near the end of the movie. 2. Why isn't Nala helping? Her daughter is going through an IMMENSE emotional crisis in her first falling in love and her mother just isn't there? Not once in the movie(except the beginning and when Kovu shows up for the first time) does Nala comfort her daughter, especially when Kovu gets banished. Come on! She KNOWS that the two have fallen in love, but doesn't help for most of the movie. 3. Almost everyone are so ignorant of Kiara, including Nala. Can you please LISTEN to her for a second and stop being a jerk, Simba? 4. Shortly before the movie ends, Mufasa's ghost shows up to say "Well done, my son". ARE YOU SERIOUS? You say that to SIMBA who's been a jerk for most of the movie. Give your thanks to, I don't know, maybe KIARA.
Now let's get to the good parts.
1. Rafiki. One of the very few characters(no, actually the only character) who helps and understands Kiara. Friend of the family, indeed. Now if you could just hit Simba with your stick... 2. Timon and Pumbaa. Though they don't appear much, they're still the old comedy trio. Timon's fur appears darker. I guess they're getting older. 3. Vitani. I have a crush on her(when she's a cub). And that is not creepy, because she's an animated character and that doesn't count. 4. Zira. She gets a great villain song and is the best character here.
And the big question: WHERE DID THE OUTLANDERS COME FROM???
