Storyline

Timon and Pumbaa start to watch the original Lion King movie, but Timon keeps insisting to fast forward to when they come in, because they weren't seen in the beginning of the story or anywhere until halfway through. Pumbaa suggests telling the audience their story, which begins before Simba's journey begins. Through this, we meet Timon's mother and Uncle Max, discover why he left his meerkat colony, where he learned Hakuna Matata, how he meets Pumbaa, and the perils they encountered while searching for their dream home.

Trivia

While the original Lion King movie was based on "Hamlet," this film clearly takes its inspiration from the play "Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead" which features the events of "Hamlet" through the eyes of two minor characters. See more »

Goofs

In the 'Can You Feel The Love Tonight' sequence [in the French track], after Timon and Pumbaa have catapulted into a tree, in the song you can hear a gasping noise. The song was taken from the first Lion King and the noise was Nala gasping for breath after Simba pulled her into the water. See more »

Quotes

Uncle Max: We're food for other animals! A moveable feast, feared by no-one and eaten by all!
Timon: But when they die, they become the grass, and we eat the grass, right?
Uncle Max: Not exactly. We can't digest grass. We're grass intolerant.

A very good movie; better than expected.
12 February 2004 | by See all my reviews

I wasn't sure when I heard about this coming out. I was thinking how dumb is Disney getting. I was wrong. I found it to be very good. I mean it's not The Lion King but it's cool to see another side from a certain point. It was very funny. Also it wasn't one of those corny disney sequels were the animation sucks, it was just like The Lion King animation. The only thing that eritated me was the whole movie theater thing through out the movie. Not to give anything way but you'll know what I am talking about. I also fun that it was cool to have most of the cast from the original to return. It was a very good movie over all.
