#CotD: The most com­mer­cially suc­cess­ful ani­mated film of it’s time, “The Lion King” was crit­i­cized by as being lit­tle more than an ani­mated Hamlet.

The Lion King (1994) — Dis­ney The­atri­cal Film

A young lion cub, Simba, strug­gles to fol­low in the regal paw prints of his father, King Mufasa, after Mufasa is killed through the treach­ery of his uncle Scar. Simba is con­vinced that he is actu­ally respon­si­ble for his father’s death, and Scar urges him to run away from the Pride lands and never return.

Fright­ened and guilt-stricken, Simba flees into exile where he is befriended by Pum­baa, a warm­hearted warthog, and Timon, his free­wheel­ing Meerkat com­pan­ion. Simba adopts their atti­tude of “Hakuna Matata” (no wor­ries), until he matures into an adult lion.

When his child­hood friend, Nala, arrives on the scene, Simba is per­suaded to take his right­ful place as king, return­ing to the Pride lands which have suf­fered under Scar’s reign.
