This is a short version from
the movie. It gives only a small impression of how the movie looks like.
I really suggest you, if you didn't did this already, to view the movie
||Every morning, as the sun peeks over the horizon, a giant rock formation
catches the first rays of light. This is Pride Rock, home to Mufasa and
his lovely wife, Queen Sarabi. On a particular morning, animals from all
the Pride Lands had journeyed to Pride Rock to honor the birth of their
newborn cub, Simba.
||As part of the celebration, Rafiki had a special duty. He cranked open
a gourd, dipped his finger inside, and made a mark on Simba's forehead.
Then he lifted the future King up high for all to see. The elephants trumpeted
with their trunks, the monkeys jumped up and down, and the zebras stamped
with their hooves with happiness.
||Not far from the ceremony, in a cave at the backside of Pride Rock,
a scraggly lion with a dark mane grumbled. Life's not fair. I shall never
be king. This was Mufasa's brother, Scar, who was jealous of Simba's position
as the next King. Moments later, Mufasa was at the doorway to the cave.
Sarabi and I didn't see you at the presentation of Simba. Zazu, Mufasa's
trusted advisor, also appeared. You should have been first in line. I was
first in line until the little hairball was born. And with that, Scar stalked
out of the cave.
||Before long, Simba grew into a healthy, playful young cub. Early one
morning, he and Mufasa climbed to the top of Pride Rock. As they looked
out at the rising sun, Mufasa pointed to the light beams that stretched
across the Pride Lands. Look Simba: Everything the light touches is our
kingdom. Simba scanned the horizon and noticed a dark spot in the distance.
What about that shadowing place ? That's beyond our borders. You must never
go there, Simba. But I thought a king can do what ever he wants. There's
more to being king than getting your way all the time. Everything you see
exists together in a delicate balance. As king you need to understand that
balance and respect all the living creatures - from the crawling ant to
the leaping antelope. We are all connected to the great Circle of Life.
||Later, as Simba headed back to down the path, he ran into Scar. Hey
uncle Scar! Guess what? I'm gonna be King of Pride Rock. My dad just showed
me the whole kingdom! And I'm gonna rule it all! Scar looked slyly the
young cub. He didn't showed you what's beyond that rise at the northern
border. Well no. He said I can't go there. And he's absolutely right. It's
far to dangerous. Only the bravest lions go there. Promise me you never
visit that dread- full place.
||When Simba returned home, he found his friend Nala and her mother,
Sarafina, visiting with Sarabi. Come on! I just heard about this great
place! The mothers gave permission for the youngsters to go, as long as
Zazu went with them. Simba and Nala raced across the Pride Lands in an
effort to lose the watchful bird. They led him trough many herds of animals
until they finally lost him.
||One the cubs were free of Zazu, Simba pounced on Nala, then Nala flipped
Simba onto his back. They tumbled down a hill and landed in a dark ravine
litter with elephant skulls and bones. Simba looked around and gasped.
This is it! We made it! Before the cubs could explore any farther, Zazu
tracked them down. We're way beyond the boundary of the Pride Lands. And
right now we're all in very real danger.
||Suddenly three hyenas slithered out the eye sockets of an elephant
skull. Frightened, Simba, Nala and Zazu jumped back. It was Banzai, his
partner, Shenzi, and the always - laughing Ed. Banzai sneered. A trio of
trespassers. Zazu tried to lead the cubs to safety, but Banzai grabbed
him by the neck and plopped him down. The hyenas circled their prey, licking
their chops. What's the hurry? We're love you to stick around for dinner.
||While the hyenas argued about who was going to eat whom, Simba, Nala
and Zazu quickly slipped away. But the hyenas weren't distracted for long.
They gave chase, and Simba and Nala had to run as fast as they could. Finally
they tried hiding behind some elephant bones. Just when it looked as if
it were all over for the cubs, Mufasa appeared and sent the hyenas flying
with a swipe of his big paw. If you ever come to my son again... The hyenas
slicked away, and Mufasa glared at Simba. You deliberately disobeyed me!
I'm very disappointed in you !
||Mufasa sent Nala and Zazu home so he could talk privately to his son.
Simba peered up at his father. I was just trying to be brave, like you.
Being brave doesn't mean you go looking for trouble. Dad we're pals right?
And we'll always be together right? Mufasa looked up at the stars. Simba,
let me tell you something my father told me: Look at the stars. The great
kings of the past look down on us from those stars. So whenever you feel
alone, just remember that those kings will always be their to guide you.
And so will I.
||Meanwhile, the hyenas received another visitor: An angry Scars showed
up at the lair. I practically gift wrapped those cubs and you couldn't
even dispose of them. Scar warned the hyenas to be prepared. Banzai laughed.
Yeah! Be prepared!.. For what? Scar looked at him with danger in his eyes.
For the death of the king.
||The following day, Scar invited Simba to join in the gorge. When they
arrived, Scar turned to his young nephew. Now you wait here. Your father
a marvelous surprice for you. Moments after he left, Scar signaled the
hyenas, who chased a herd of wildebeest directly toward Simba. From a distance,
Mufasa noticed the rising dust. Scar appeared quickly at his side. Stampede!
In the gorge! Simba's down there! Without waiting a second, Mufasa took
of to save his young son.
||Mufasa plunged into the gorge and battled his way through the oncoming
wildebeests. He found Simba, grabbing him by the nape of his neck, and
put him on a nearby ledge. Suddenly Mufasa was knocked back into the stampede.
Desperately he tried to climb up another ledge from which Scar stood looking
down on him. Brother - help me! Scar reached for Mufasa and pulled him
close enough to whisper in his ear. Long live the king. Then Scar let go
of Mufasa and he fell to his death. Simba peered over the ridge just as
his father disappeared beneath the thundering stampede.
||Later, Scar found Simba hovering over his father's body, sobbing. It
was an accident. I didn't mean for it to happen. But the king is dead.
And if it weren't for you, he'd still be alive. Oh, what will your mother
think? Simba sobbed harder. What am I gong to do? Run away, Simba. Run!
Run away and never return. Simba did as he was told, unaware that his uncle's
hyenas friends had been ordered to finish him of. Scar returned to Pride
Rock to take over the throne.
||Meanwhile, Simba plodded across the Savannah without any food or water.
It wasn't long he fainted under the hot sun. As the vultures circled overhead,
a big-hearted warthog named Bumbaa stumbled upon the young lion. He turned
to his trusty pal, a fast-talking meerkat named Timon. He's so cute and
all alone. Can we keep him? Pumbaa, are you nuts? Lions eat guys like us.
But Pumbaa scooped Simba up anyway, and carried him to safety.
||When Simba awoke, the first thought that sprang to mind was his father's
death. Timon taught about HAKUNA MATATA, which means no responsibilities,
no worries. You've got to put your past behind you. And that is exactly
what Simba did. He stayed in the jungle with Pumbaa and Timon a long, long
time, and grew into a very big lion. But eventually he got homesick. One
night he looked up at the stars and recalled the words his father had told
him long ago. The great kings of the past look down on us from those stars.
So whenever you feel alone, just remember that those kings will always
be there to guide you. And so will I.
||The next day, Pumbaa was stalked and chased by a lioness. Simba came
to his rescue, but after wrestling with the lioness, who easily flipped
him onto his back, he realized that she was his old friend. Nala? What
are you doing here? Why didn't you return to Pride Rock? You're the king!
I'm not the king. Scar is Simba, he let the hyenas take over the Pride
Lands. What? There's no food, no water. If you don't do something, soon,
everyone will starve. You're our only hope. I can't go back.
||Simba yelled at the heavens. You said you'd always be there for me,
but you're not.. because of me. Simba didn't believe he could challenge
Scar to the throne, so he stayed in the jungle with Nala and his new friends.
But Rafiki knew the time had come for Simba to take his place in the Circle
of Life, and he headed for the jungle. Simba saw him, and was superposed.
Who are you? The question is: Who are you? I thought I knew. Now I'm not
so sure. Well, I know who you are. You're Mufasa's boy. He's alive, and
I'll show him to you you follow old Rafiki. He knows the way.
||He led Simba to a reflecting pool. When he looked into the water, he
saw a lion. That's not my father. It's just my reflection. Look harder...
You see, he lives in you. The ghost of Mufasa magically appeared. look
inside yourself, Simba. You are more than what you have become. You must
take your place into the Circle of Life
||Encouraged by his father's words, Simba returned to Pride Rock. Nala,
Pumbaa and Timon followed. When Simba arrived, he found the land bare and
dry. The hyenas were in control, and Scar was shouting at Simba's mother.
Sarabi turned to Scar. We must leave Pride Rock. We're not going anywhere.
I'm the king. If you were half the king Mufasa was- I AM TEN TIMES THE
KING MUFASA WAS!!
||Suddenly a flash of lightning revealed the ledge of Pride Rock, and
there stood Simba. Scar jumped back. Simba.. I'm a little surpriced to
see you.. alive. Give me one good reason why I shouldn't rip you apart.
But Scar forced Simba to say, in front of all the lions, that he had caused
his fathers death. Scar smirked. Oh Simba, you're in trouble again. But
this time Daddy isn't here to help you. And now everyone knows why. Simba
backed up against the edge. Lighting struck again, setting fire to the
dry brush of the Pride Lands.
||Simba, knowing the truth, leapt on Scar. Nala and the other lionesses
joined the battle. Through the smoke and flames of the bushfire, Simba
spotted Scar trying to escape and ran after the old lion. Scar pleaded
with his nephew. Simba, I'll make it up to you. I promise. How can I prove
myself to you? Run. Run away and never return. Scar started to slink off,
but then he turned and lunged one last time at Simba. Simba moved quickly
and flipped Scar over the edge, where a pack of hyenas were waiting hungrily.
||Limping badly, Simba climbed up to the very top of Pride Rock. He let
out a magnificent roar as he looked over HIS kingdom. Before long, Pride
Rock flourished again. Nala remained by Simba's side, and soon they had
their own newborn cub. With all their friends around, including Zazu, Pumbaa
and Timon, a new celebration of life took place. After making a mark on
the forehead of the young cub, Rafiki held him up for all the kingdom to
