Emotionally stirring and richly drawn, ‘The Lion King’ follows the adventures of young lion Simba, the heir of his father, Mufasa. Simba's wicked uncle, Scar, plots to usurp Mufasa's throne by luring father and son into a stampede of wildebeests. But Simba escapes, and only Mufasa is killed. Simba returns as an adult to take back his homeland from Scar with the help of his friends Timon and Pumbaa in this Disney favourite with unforgettable songs by Elton John and Tim Rice.
