The Lion King (2019)
- Spoilers (1)
Mufasa: Everything you see - exists together in a delicate balance. While others search for what they can take, a true king searches for what he can give.
Mufasa: Everything the light touches... is our kingdom. But a king's time as ruler rises and falls like the sun. One day, the sun will set on my time here, and will rise with you as the new king.
Scar: [to mouse] 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.
Rafiki: [to Simba] Look closer. You see, he lives in you.
Mufasa: Simba, you must remember who you are: the one true king.
Zazu: How lovely to see the future King and Queen!
Young Simba: What do you mean?
Zazu: One day, you will be betrothed.
Young Nala: Simba, you speak bird?
Zazu: Married... to each other.
Simba: My father once told me: protect everything the light touches, if I don't fight for it who will?
Nala: Simba... you have to take your place... as king. We need you... come home.
Pumbaa: [as he and Timon catch up with Simba and Nala, about to reclaim Pride Rock from Scar] We're here!
Timon: Oh, everyone calm down. We're here.
Pumbaa: The backup has arrived!
Mufasa: [from TV spot] Look at the stars, the great kings look down on us from those stars... And so will I.
Young Simba: I'm going to be King of Pride Rock. I want to be brave like you.
Mufasa: I'm only brave when I have to be.
Mufasa: [from trailer] You must take your place... in the circle of life.
Scar: I was first in line... until the prince arrived.
Scar: Mufasa and Simba are gone... I... am your king.
Timon: If you want to live with us, you have to eat like us
[Timon and Pumbaa are eating grubs]
Timon: Mmmm, extra crunchy.
Pumbaa: They're local.
Timon: Oh, are they?
Pumbaa: They're from right there.
Nala: Scar has taken over the Pride Lands. This isn't the home I remember.
Timon: [about the hyenas] What's your plan, for getting us last the slobbering guards?
Pumbaa: All we need to do is find something that's like big and juicy...
[Simba, Nala, and Zazu stare at him]
Pumbaa: Why is everybody looking at me?
Pumbaa: I missed 'em, I'm gonna get one of those vultures one day.
Timon: I don't know why it's so important to you.
Pumbaa: I just feel like it would make me feel better.
Pumbaa: Oh no, it's a little lion.
Timon: That is not a lion.
Pumbaa: Well then, go check it out.
Timon: That is not a lion, it's a furry bird.
Pumbaa: It looks like a lion.
Timon: It's not... Let me get a closer look, excuse me, all right let me see what were dealing with here.
Timon: It's a lion! Run for your life, Pumbaa!
Pumbaa: Wait, hey, Timon, wait, wait, hey, Timon, it's a little lion!
Timon: [hiding behind rock] It gets bigger.
Pumbaa: Can we keep him, can we please keep him? Oh, I promise I'll walk him every day, if he makes a little mess I'll clean it up.
Timon: You'll be his little mess, he's gonna eat you and then use my body as a toothpick.
Pumbaa: But one day when he's big and strong, he'll be on our side.
Timon: I got it: what if he's on our side? Hear me out: having a ferocious lion around might not be a bad idea.
Pumbaa: Well then, can we keep him?
Timon: Yes, of course we can keep him! My God, who's the brains of this operation?
Pumbaa: We're gonna name him, Fred.
Timon: [distracting the hyenas] Ma chère mademoiselle, we are proud to present... your dinner. Be. Our. Gue - ahhhh!
[Before he can finish performing, the hyenas chase him and Pumbaa off]
Scar: This gorge is where all lions, come to find their roar.
Young Simba: All lions, even my Dad?
Scar: Even Mufasa came here when he was your age, refused to leave until his roar could be heard above the rim.
Young Simba: All the way up there?
Scar: That's when you know you've found it, with a little practice you'll never be called a cub again.
Young Simba: Watch this.
[does a small roar]
Scar: You'll get it Simba, just takes time, I'll check on you later.
Young Simba: Dad will be so proud, huh?
Scar: It's a gift, he'll never forget.
Zazu: The king approaches this is not a drill. His Majesty has requested an audience upon his entrance you will rise.
Scar: Zazu you made me lose my lunch.
Zazu: You will answer to Mufasa for missing the ceremony this morning.
Scar: I answer to noone!
Zazu: Scar, Scar, Scar, Scar, Scar, Scar, Scar, no, no don't look at me like that.
Scar: Are you hungry... Zazu? Perhaps we could have a bite together.
[lunges at Zazu]
Zazu: You can't eat me, it is forbidden remember in the king's court. Please, stop it!
Scar: We'll look who's come to mingle with the commoners.
Mufasa: Sarabi and I didn't see you at the presentation of Simba.
Scar: Was that today, must've slipped my mind. Of course I meant no disrespect towards his Majesty or Sarabi. As you know I have tremendous respect for the crown
Zazu: As the Kings brother you should be first in line.
Scar: I was first in line, that is until the precious prince arrived
Mufasa: Don't turn your back on me Scar!
Scar: Oh no Mufasa, perhaps you shouldn't turn your back on me.
Mufasa: Is that a challenge?
Scar: I wouldn't dream of challenging you... again.
Zazu: A wise decision you are no match for his Royal's most...
Scar: Well as far as brains go I have the Lion's share, but when it comes to brute strength I'm afraid my big brother will always rule
Mufasa: Not always Scar. One day it will be my son who rules, Simba will be your King.
Scar: Then long live the king.
Mufasa: What am I gonna do with him?
Zazu: Come on, we both know he should've been expelled from the Pridelands long ago.
Mufasa: He is my brother Zazu, this is his home as long as I am king, that'll never change.
Zazu: Well there is one in every family sire, I had a cousin who thought he was a woodpecker he slammed his head into trees and beaks aren't built for it, he was concussed regularly, and oh youve gone ahh sure coming back.
Nala: Seeing you again, you don't know what this will mean to everyone.
Scar: Mufasa has something he didn't have before... A weakness.
Mufasa: Don't turn your back on me, Scar!
Scar: Oh, no, Mufasa. Perhaps you shouldn't turn your back on me.
Mufasa: Is that a challenge?
Scar: When I am king, the mighty will be able to take whatever they want.
Scar: [to the hyenas] The way I see it, why eat one meal... when you can be feasting the rest of your lives? Are you hungry?
Mufasa: [threateningly] If you ever come near my son again...
Shenzi: [nods her head; weakly] No Mufasa, Never. Never again.
Mufasa: You've been warned, Shenzi.
Simba: It's over, Scar.
Scar: Have mercy on me.
Simba: Mercy? For what you did.
Scar: It was the hyenas. Those were the revolting, scavengers made me do it. I was planning on killing them all.
Simba: You fooled the hyenas? Just like you fooled me.
Scar: Simba, you wouldn't kill your only uncle.
Simba: No, Scar. I'm not like you.
Scar: Oh, Simba. You are truly noble, and I will make it up to you. Just tell me how I can prove myself. Tell me what you want me to do.
Simba: Run... Run away, Scar. Run away, and never return.
Scar: Yes. Of course... As you wish.
[looking down and seeing a pile of hot coals, began to angry]
Scar: Your majesty!
[throws embers of fire at Simba's face]
Scar: Say it, Are you the king?
Simba: No, No-I...
Scar: Are you the king?
Scar: No what? Say it!
Simba: I'm nothing
Scar: Then bow to your King!
[Simba falls and hangs over the ledge of Pride Rock]
Simba: [attacks Scar after Scar admitted in to killing Mufasa] My father, your own brother - how could you!
Scar: [to the hyenas and lionesses] First he kills Mufasa, and now he wants to kill me!
Simba: YOU killed him! Tell them the truth!
Scar: Don't believe his lies!
Sarabi: Scar? You told us you didn't get to the gorge in time.
Scar: That's true!
Sarabi: [outraged] Then how did you see the look in Mufasa's eyes?
Scar: KILL THEM ALL!
Pumbaa: [the hyenas are body shaming Pumbaa causing him to react] I may run from hyenas, but I do not run from a bully!
Scar: Mufasa has always shown too much restraint when it comes to hunting. When I am king, the mighty will be free to take whatever they want. Because a hyena's belly is never full.
Shenzi: Mufasa's far too powerful to challenge
Scar: Mufasa is yesterday's message A clapped out, distracted regime Whose failings undoubtedly presage The need for a different dream Yes, leonine times are a-changing Which means that hyenas must, too My vision is clear and wide-ranging And even encompasses you So prepare for the coup of the century Prepare for the murkiest scam Meticulous planning Tenacity spanning Decades of denial Is simply why I'll Be king undisputed Respected, saluted And seen for the wonder I am Yes, my teeth and ambitions are bared Be prepared!
Scar: Be prepared
Scar: Be prepared.
Scar: BE PREPARED! BE PREPARED!
Scar: Long, live...
Scar: THE KING!
[Scar slaps Mufasa]
Mufasa: [screams as it falls] Aaaa-aaaa-aaaahhhh!
Young Simba: [cries out] No-oooo-oooo-oooo!
Mufasa: Zazu? Take Nala back to Pride Rock.
Zazu: Yes, sire. Don't be too hard on him, sire. I remember a cub. A certain headstrong cub. Who was always getting into scrapes and he achieved some prominence, did he not, sire?
Mufasa: I have to teach my son a lesson.
Zazu: Nala, come along.
Scar: [notices the hyenas] My friends, it will take some time but together we will build our army.
Kamari: Friends, huh. I thought you said we were revolting scavengers.
Azizi: [angry] Yeah, and you wanted to kill us.
Scar: No, no let me explain I was trying to fool him. We will rule together!
Shenzi: There was only one true thing you ever said Scar, a hyenas belly is never full.
[Scar tries to fight off the hyenas but they all quickly pounce and maul him to death]
Timon: [to Simba] So... how are you, in as few words as possible?
Timon: [Simba is singing Hakuna Matata] Oh, now he's riffing, Pumbaa! This is a nightmare!
Kamari: [to Simba and Nala] Well look at this, we weren't expecting guests... today. Would you two cubs like to... stay for dinner?
Azizi: [butting in] Yeah stay for dinner, because you look like a midnight snack.
Kamari: [annoyed] Can you just give me a little bit of space, we've talked about this before- I come in alone I'm the lead distraction so everyone can circle.
Azizi: Okay, okay. Sorry.
Kamari: Don't be sorry, just do it!
Shenzi: No this is something I waited my whole life. What an unexpected treat to meet the son of a king.
Kamari: Wait a second the king, as in you know who.
Azizi: Who rules you know where.
Shenzi: Mufasa does not rule me.
Young Simba: You cant do anything to me, because I'm the future king.
Shenzi: [chuckles] he's telling me what to do, his father's strength flickering inside, I wonder how all that bravery will taste.
Zazu: [suddenly appears] Let them go Shenzi. They made a mistake a horrible mistake, but if you do this, you will start a war with Mufasa.
Shenzi: Hyenas and Lions have been at war since the beginning of time. But Mufasa's bloodline WILL END HERE.
[lunges at Simba and Nala but they escape]
Shenzi: don't let them get away!
Kamari: [Simba lets out a small roar, causing Azizi to burst out laughing] Did you hear that? The future King.
Azizi: Do it again.
[Simba roars but it's actually Mufasa]
Scar: You fools have stripped your land of every living thing, and yet I send two little cubs your way, why eat one meal when you can be feasting the rest of your lives, a place where you can fill your bellies
Shenzi: What could you possibly offer us.
Scar: Where everything the light touches is yours.
Kamari: The next time I see Mufasa, I'm gonna teach him a lesson he will never forget.
Azizi: [notices Scar behind him,mistakes him for Mufasa] Well your in luck, he's right behind you.
Timon: [Timon explains his life philosophy] Let me make this simple: Life is meaningless.
Sarafina: Nala come here, sit with us.
Nala: [Zazu arrives] Zazu, where have you been?
Zazu: I'm sorry Nala, I came as soon as I could.
[the sounds a hyena is heard]
Sarabi: The morning report, Zazu.
Zazu: Your Majesty, the Pride Lands are in imminent danger. The hyenas are chasing off the last of the herds
Azizi: The birds back.
Kamari: Get him!
[Kamari and Azizi try to chase off Zazu]
Kamari: Don't come here again unless you want to be eaten.
Scar: Sarabi why put yourself through this, all you have to do is be my queen. Your suffering from what a memory of a life you once knew, a king you once loved. I tried to make you understand what a true king can be.
Sarabi: Scar, a true kings power is his compassion.
Scar: [angered] I AM TEN TIMES THE KING, MUFASA WAS!
Sarabi: You are nothing compared to Mufasa.
[Scar attacks Sarabi]
Scar: [notices a roaring Simba] Mufasa, that can't be.
Simba: Get away from my mother!
Mufasa: [as ghost; to Simba] I never left you. I never will. Remember who you are.
Mufasa: Believe in yourself and there will come a day when others will have no choice but to believe with you.
Mufasa: Stay low to the ground, check the wind... the shadows, and wait for the perfect moment to pounce.
Simba: [singing Hakuna Matata] One more time.
Pumbaa: I think we got this one.
Simba: We're just getting into the groove.
Timon: Let's leave a morning roll.
Scar: [from trailer] Welcome to the dawning of a new era.
Timon: [Pumbaa tells his story of never having any friends because of his flatulence problem, but Timon is quick to remind him that he wasn't totally alone] I was always here for you. I resent that.
Timon: [Pumbaa asks Timon if he was ever gonna to interrupted him from saying farted] No, I wasn't; you disgust me
Timon: [Timon's assessing the barren, skeleton-ridden Pride Rock] Talk about a fixer-upper. I think you went heavy on the carcass
Timon: [regarding Simba's home] is it past that big scary rock?
Mufasa: As king I was proud of one thing, you as my son. That alone. No, that is forever.
Mufasa: [to Simba; regarding everything the light touches] It belongs to know one, but it is yours to protect.
Shenzi: [Simba has fallen over a high cliff] Go down, and make sure he's dead.
Kamari: [Azizi gets to close to him; annoyed] Seriously
Azizi: Oh, I'm sorry.
Kamari: [Azizi backs up a bit] That's a good distance right there.
Kamari: [they both look down the ravine] No little cub could survive that fall, listen we're gonna tell her we went down there and we ate him
Azizi: [misunderstanding] Uh-huh, that's perfect cause I am starving.
Kamari: [annoyed] We're not gonna eat him, 'Simba is dead', that's all she ever has to know.
Azizi: Works for me.
Shenzi: His father's strength is flickering inside. I wonder how bravery will taste.
Young Nala: [Zazu has told her and Simba that one day they will be married] I'd rather marry an aardvark.
Young Simba: My dad was pretty upset with me
Scar: That's why were here Simba, I think I know a way for you to make it up to him. A gift that will make him forget it ever happened.
Young Simba: But he's the king, what could I give him?
Scar: Your roar.
Young Simba: My roar?
[his voice echos]
Scar: did you hear that?
Nala: We have to do something.
Sarabi: Nala, Scar is the king.
Nala: But you are our queen. We should leave before it's too late.
Sarabi: We must stay together and protect the Pride Lands. This is our home. We must never abandon it.
Nala: This isn't the home I remember.
Sarabi: Our time will come Nala. Be patient.
Shenzi: Sarabi, the king wishes to see you.
Nala: Don't go.
Sarabi: I am not afraid of him.
Scar: [as Simba hangs over the ledge of Pride Rock] where have I seen this before? Oh yes, I remember this is the way Mufasa looked before he died. I looked down saw the fear in his eyes
[claws simbas arms]
Scar: and heres my little secret... I killed Mufasa.
