Synopsis


Lion King II: Simba's Pride
Darrell Rooney directed this direct-to-video sequel to Disney's 1994 The Lion King, which climaxed with Simba (voice of Matthew Broderick) enthroned as the ruling king of beasts following the death of the evil Scar. With the spirited tune He Lives in You, Simba and his mate Nala (Moira Kelly) issue a triumphant announcement of the birth of Lion Princess Kiara (Neve Campbell)! Given to misadventures and mischief, Kiara wanders into the forbidden Outlands, the haunt of Scar's exiled minions, and there she encounters another mischievous cub, Kovu (Jason Marsden), son of lioness Zira (Suzanne Pleshette), once a close friend of the late Scar and now the leader of the exiles. Zira plots against Kiara, drawing her son into her scheme. Kovu has divided loyalties as his love for Kiara deepens. Several original characters (and original voices) from the 1994 film return in this sequel, an event so anticipated that Buena Vista Home Video initially shipped 15 million units for the 10/27/98 retail release. ~ Bhob Stewart, Rovi

    It was really enjoyable to watch however I have noticed that there is deeper meaning than what is outright presented. It enlightened people about unity and to bring all peoples together. The characters in this movie show what people in this world believe and that people can change. I liked this movie because so many people, especially for the younger children, can relate to the subject of love, friendship, and unity. It brings people from diverse groups together as in the case with all the animals coming together. As stated in the movie, love will find a way. Some things that I did not like was the fact that Zira was so full hatred and that did not help her in the end. It is sad to see but that sometimes represents some people in this world.

    I liked this movie when I was a kid, but only had it on VHS previously. I bought this copy to have an updated version for easier viewing and better quality sound/picture. It also comes with a digital copy which is even more convenient! I'm not gonna write a movie review here, but I will say it's pretty decent as far as straight to video sequels go. The music isn't terrible either. All in all, this is a good purchase to modernize your aging Disney VHS collection.

    The Lion King 2 Simba's Pride is one of the bestest sequels to a Disney movie. This movie has been overlooked.. The story is just like Romeo and Juliet. But Disneyfied ! Btw, The music is just fantastic ! When I was a kid, I love the movie so much ! Just as much as I love the Lion King! You can't go wrong with this movie you guys. If you love the Lion King, you'll love this one too.

    This is probably my favorite Disney sequel! The film is highly underrated. I'm an adult and I loved it. I watched this back when I was a kid and I still remember it to this day. I can only assume kids will love it even more. This is worth adding to your Disney collection. I got it for the wonderful price of $19.99. Thank you to Best Buy for always having the best prices on new releases!

    One of the best scores, best plots (it takes after Hamlet), and best character-driven pieces Disney had done to-date. Having this DVD in your repertoire is always a crowd-pleaser. I enjoy teaching Hamlet and finish out my semester showing this DVD with the students.

    The Lion King is one of the greatest animated films ever and I remember when this came out on VHS and I waited in line to buy it. Now I can relive it in HD. The SOngs and animation are top notch.

    Not a great film, it was just O.K. Never in the theaters, straight to home video. If you're a collector then you'll have to get it. If not, I would probably tell you to pass on it, unless you absolutely have to have it on a digital format.
