The Lion King Trilogy : Fun Filled Family Entertainment
The Lion King is the story of Simba, a young cub born to the king of the jungle, Mufasa. As Simba grows, his curiosity does not let him rest. He is constantly looking to explore areas, even the areas Mufasa told him not to.
Scar, Mufasa’s brother and villain of the story, uses this to his advantage. He assembles a pack of hyenas, and sets a trap for Mufasa using Simba as bait. The trap works and Scar kills Mufasa by pushing him off a cliff. Scar goes onto to become the new lion king.
With Simba’s life in danger, his friends take him away from the group and he is raised completely isolated from others of his kind. He still misses his father, and feels lonely. When he grows up, events force him to return to the group, and face the hyenas and Scar.
