Synopsis

On its release, The Lion King was hailed as an instant classic from Disney. This animated epic (loosely based on Shakespeare's Hamlet) is not only beautiful visually, but the story is equally captivating. Lion cub Simba runs away from his pride, believing he caused the tragic death of his beloved father King Mufasa. With Simba away, his evil uncle Scar can become king. But while wandering in the African wilderness, Simba meets Pumba and Timon, two colourful characters, whose friendship gives him the strength to face his destiny.
