After the murder of his father, a young lion prince flees his kingdom only to learn the true meaning of responsibility and bravery.
From Disney Live Action, director Jon Favreau’s all-new “The Lion King” journeys to the African savanna where a future is born. Simba idolizes his father, King Mufasa, and takes to heart his own royal destiny. But not everyone in the kingdom celebrates the new cub’s arrival. Scar, Mufasa’s brother-and former heir to the throne-has plans of his own. The battle for Pride Rock is ravaged with betrayal, tragedy and drama, ultimately resulting in Simba’s exile. With help from a curious pair of newfound friends, Simba will have to figure out how to grow up and take back what is rightfully his.
