Show Detail

Rafiki gathers the animals of the Pridelands to welcome the newborn cub of King Mufasa and Queen Sarabi. The king's jealous brother, Scar, no longer heir to the throne, skips the ceremony, upsetting Mufasa. Time passes and young Simba grows into a curious young lion. Mufasa explains the circle of life and that Young Simba will one day be king of the Pridelands. Young Simba shares this news with Scar, who encourages his nephew to visit the forbidden Elephant Graveyard with a sinister plot in mind. Follow Simba as he must persevere the trials and tribulations of growing into adulthood.
