Lion King is the story of Simba the lion cub and the famous Lion King songs are familiar to millions. Simba is looking forward to becoming king of the pride but his scheming Uncle Scar has other plans. When tragedy strikes, the lion cub runs away believing himself to be an outcast. With Scar and the hyenas in charge, the once-proud Pride Lands fall into misery and neglect. Can Simba face down his past with the help of friends Timon and Pumbaa? And will he ever return to his rightful place as King of the Pride Lands and restore the Circle of Life?
