Nala is a character from the 1994 Disney film The Lion King. She is brave, compassionate, and retains a sense of responsibility and justice. As a cub, however, she was rambunctious, mischievous, and adventurous like her royal future-husband Simba.
Simba is the son of Mufasa, the lion king of the Pridelands (located in the Serengeti). When Mufasa is killed by his scheming brother Scar, Simba is convinced by his uncle that the death was his fault and runs away. Narrowly
escaping the jaws of Scar's hyena henchmen, he is found and brought up in an oasis by two comic reliefs: Timon - a meercat and Pumbaa - a warthog. That night, Nala and the rest of the pride are told by Scar that both Mufasa and Simba are dead. He assumes the title of king, and begins a reign of fear after admitting the hyenas into the land.
Years later, Nala ventures outside of the Pridelands to find help. Stumbling onto the oasis, she finds and hunts Timon and Pumbaa. Simba comes the rescue to soon discover that the opposing lioness is his long-lost friend. He explains that he was found by Timon and Pumbaa and that he had adopted their philosophy of "Hakuna Mutata" - carefree life. Nala relates how Scar destroyed the Pridelands and that it was Simba's responsibility to claim the throne. Simba refuses to do this, but after an encounter with his father's ghost, decides to confront his uncle. Nala, Timon, and Pumbaa soon follow and participate in the violent battle with Scar.
