The review of this Movie prepared by becky
In this charming animated film from Disney, we meet Simba, a lion cub who is next in time to be king. His uncle, Scar is jealous, and kills Simba's father, Mufasa. Simba is so upset, he runs into the jungle and meets a wisecracking meerkat, and warthog. They invent the philosophy, "Hakuna Matata", which means "no worries." Meanwhile, the Pride Lands have been taken over by Scar, and everyone thinks that Simba is dead. The film is beautifully well done, with incredible music by Elton John and Tim Rice. Timon and Pumbaa, meanwhile supply the laughs.

Simba dreams of being king of the jungle one day. But that title belongs to his evil uncle Scar. Scar will do anything to keep his title, even if it means killing Simba with an army of hyenas. Simba becomes friends with Timon the lemur and Pumbaa the warthog. This film is scored beautifully by Tim Rice and Elton John.

An animated Disney film, it takes place in the African Savannah. A lion cub named Simba (Taylor-Thomas) is the rightful heir to the throne. His father is the righteous king Mufasa (Jones). One day, Mufasa's brother Scar (Irons), jelous that the birth of Simba once again prevents him from taking the throne, sets up an elaborate scheme surrounding a wildebeast stampede that allows him to kill Mufasa, who was trying to save Simba. Scar than tells Simba that it was because of him that Mufasa died. Simba left in desgrace and Scar sent his three hyena lackies (Goldberg, Marin, and Cummings) to kill Simba. Simba escapes, but Scar takes over the Pridelands. Simba then meets two hilarious characters: a meerkat named Timon (Lane), and a warthog named Pumbaa (Sabella). With the motto of Hakuna Matata (No Worries), Pumbaa, Timon and Simba live a carefree life. Years later, an adult Simba (Broderick)learns that Scar has turned the Pridelands into a wasteland. Will Simba get back in time to claim the throne? People will recognize this movie is baised on Shakespere's Hamlet, but the large amount of comic releif comes from Pumbaa & Timon's antics and the Hyenas' cichanery.
