Live-action re-imagining of the 1994 Disney classic directed by Jon Favreau. The story journeys to the African savanna where a future king is born. Simba (Donald Glover) idolizes his father, King Mufasa (James Earl Jones), and takes to heart his own royal destiny. But not everyone in the kingdom celebrates the new cub’s arrival.
Scar (Chiwetel Ejiofor), 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, Pumbaa (Seth Rogen) and Timon (Billy Eichner), Simba will have to figure out how to grow up and take back what is rightfully his.
Mufasa: Everything the light touches is our kingdom. But a king’s time as ruler rises and falls like the sun. One day the sun will set on my time here, and will rise with you as the new king. Remember.
Mufasa: Everything you see exists together in a delicate balance. While others search for what they can take, a true king searches for what he can give.
Scar: Life’s not fair, is it, my little friend? While some are born to feast, others spend their lives in the dark, begging for scraps.
Scar: Run away, Simba, and never return!
Rafiki: It is time.
Mufasa: You must take your place in the circle of life.
