The film The Lion King tells the story of a lion cub named Simba who was expelled from his homeland after his father was killed by his uncle for the throne. The beginning of the story comes from Simba’s dream to become a king of the jungle to continue the throne of his father, Mufasa.
The Lion King (2019) movie still tells the story of the life of the animals in the forest, with the lion family being the king. At that time, Mufasa became a powerful lion king and was respected by all the inhabitants of the Pride Lands forest. Mufasa later had a son named Simba. He also began to teach Simba many things.
All of this to prepare Simba to become the next king of the jungle. But apparently Mufasa has a brother who is jealous of him, a lion named Scar. Scar has ambitions to become king and overthrow Mufasa’s leadership. Now, he must get rid of Simba so that he can truly reign as king.
One day, Scar lied to little Simba and took him to a dangerous place that became the path of a herd of wildebeest. Mufasa who knows this immediately saves Simba. The incident killed Mufasa, which was also caused by Scar. But Scar told all the animals that Simba was the one who killed Mufasa.
Simba had to run away and leave his homeland. Mufasa’s death and Simba’s disappearance make Scar automatically become king of the jungle. For years, Simba never returned. Apparently he is now living in another forest with his two best friends, Timon and Pumbaa. Simba has also forgotten his identity as a lion.
One day, Simba’s little friend, Nala, is hunting for food and almost eats Timon and Pumbaa. Nala then meets Simba and informs them of the current state of their forest. Scar’s leadership makes many animals suffer and starve, Nala asks Simba to come back. But Simba felt he did not deserve to reclaim the throne.
It took Simba a long time to reflect and think about who he was. Until one night he saw his own reflection in the reflection of the river. Simba was surprised that now he felt he saw the figure of his father in him.
Finally, Simba was convinced to take the throne that should be his. Helped by his friends, Simba returns to the Pride Lands and fights Scar. A cornered Scar is still trying to convince the other animals that Simba is a murderer who doesn’t deserve to be king. But inadvertently Scar uncovers evidence that it was he who killed Mufasa.
The battle between Simba and Scar for the throne ensues. Simba finally managed to defeat Scar and become the real king of the jungle in the Pride Lands. He then married his childhood friend, Nala. After becoming king, Simba was ready to lead the forest and bequeath his throne to his son later.
