A lion prince, Simba, is born in Africa and the animals of the Pride Lands pay tribute. Later Simba is told by his father, King Mufasa, that when Mufasa dies, Simba will become King of the Pride Lands. Simba's Uncle Scar would have been king after Mufasa had Mufasa not had a child. Fuelled by rage, Scar plots to kill Mufasa and Simba so he is able to take over the throne. He uses the hyenas to cause a stampede through the canyon where Mufasa and Simba are, and personally ensures Mufasa falls to his death. Simba survives so Scar implies that the stampede was Simba's fault and that the pride will blame him. Simba flees the Pride Lands meaning never to return home. Simba is found, collapsed with exhaustion, by Timon the Meerkat, and Pumbaa the Warthog, and the trio become fast friends. Simba stays with them well into adulthood until his childhood friend, Nala, hunting beyond the Pride Lands that herds had deserted under Scar's mismanagement stumbles upon Simba's new home.

The Lion King begins when Simba is born, he is the son of the king, and the future king.. So once he starts growing Simba's evil uncle Scar forms a plan to get rid of Mufasa and Simba so he can be king. This changes a whole lot character's lives in the story, and pushes Simba to do some crazy things.. 

 I actually watched The Lion King for the first time when I was a kid, and I loved it. I loved the lions, and I loved Simba, he was always my favorite character. But as a kid I never really understood how sad this movie actually is until recently. When I watched it with my family and wanted to cry like a baby through a couple parts. I will still say this is one of my favorite Disney movies, and even though it is sad it is still a wonderful story!
