This animated epic (loosely based on Shakespeare's Hamlet) follows Simba, a lion cub who runs away from the Kingdom he is destined to rule when his father is ambushed and killed by Simba's devious Uncle Scar who plans to usurp the throne. An instant classic on release, The Lion King is not only beautiful visually, but the story is equally captivating, following Simba as he matures into an adult and befriends the carefree duo of Timon and Pumbaa (a meerkat and warthog, respectively). This story of destiny, responsibility and growing up is still captivating the imagination of audiences today.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
