The Lion King

The great circle of life has thrown up a gorgeous, star-studded story. ” Empire

Pride Rock. Timon and Pumbaa. The Circle of Life. Mufasa! The Disney classic of Simba’s journey to becoming THE LION KING is revisited and brought to 3D life in the 2019 remake with the talents of Beyonce and Donald Glover (Childish Gambino) playing the titular roles.

In case you’ve been under a “rock” (eheheh) and didn’t know the story…
Simba idolises 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, Mufasas 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, and encouragement from his childhood soulmate, Simba will have to figure out how to grow up and take back what is rightfully his.
