In Africa, the lion cub Simba is the pride and joy of his parents King Mufasa and Queen Sarabi. Mufasa prepares Simba to be the next king of the jungle. However, the naive Simba believes in his envious uncle Scar that wants to kill Mufasa and Simba to become the next king. He lures Simba and his friend Nala to go to a forbidden place and they are attacked by hyenas but they are rescued by Mufasa. Then Scar plots another scheme to kill Mufasa and Simba but the cub escapes alive and leaves the kingdom believing he was responsible for the death of his father. Now Scar becomes the king supported by the evil hyenas while Simba grows in a distant land. Sometime later, Nala meets Simba and tells that the kingdom has become a creepy wasteland. What will Simba do?Written by

The animation, color palette, and even character models are markedly improved between the two teaser trailers, a trend that continued into the more recent TV spots and ultimately the film itself. See more »
During Scar's reign, the Pride lands presumably suffers a drought. With that being the case, it would be impossible for the lions to live without water even for a few days. See more »
Life's - not fair - is it, my little friend? While some are born to feast - others spend their lives in the dark... begging for scraps. The way I see it, you and I are exactly the same, we both want to find a way out.

This movie is wrong on many levels. You cannot get into it, it just feels like a documentary with kids voice on top of it. Most important scenes have been shortened, and useless scenes (cheaper ones my guess) have been lengthen (the mouse in the intro ? seriously ?). Yes, the goal is to put realism, but we could not tell the difference between lions (Sarabi and Nala in paritcular). Everything the original Lion King brought to us (essentially emotions, mostly from the animated faces) has been ripped off, event the few jokes by Timon and Pumbaa did not succeed to pass.
Last but not least, the music seems off too. Some good scores are here, but at the end it just seems to be put above everything like "eyh we need to put music" "ok just put it anywhere you want, dont forget suggestions to the previous score for nostalgia but dont care about if it fits".
This movie is an insult to an entire generation.
