Back in 1994, the Lion King re-defined the animated musical film genre. It was unlike anything else seen before and it’s gone on to become a Disney classic that’s enjoyed by all ages.

The story follows a set of animals in the Pride Lands of Africa, a region that’s ruled over by lions. Led by King Mufasa and Queen Sarabi from Pride Rock, it begins with the birth of their cute little son Simba.

The birth of Simba gives hope and excitement to the residents of the Pride Lands, symbolised by a ceremony marking the event where he’s presented to the kingdoms shaman, Rafiki.

Simba’s born into lion royalty and he’s quickly taught by his father of his new found responsibilities for the day he becomes king, along with the circle of life. This shows how every living thing has a purpose and in one way or another, is connected.

The news of Simba’s arrival is greeted with joy, with him now the air to the throne but there’s one person in particular who it doesn’t please. His uncle and Mufasa’s younger brother, Scar.

A dark duplicitous character, Scar couldn’t be more different to his awe-inspiring sibling. He doesn’t buy into any of the good work done by the King and he’s desperate to overthrow both him and Simba. He won’t let anything stand in his way.

So he plots a plan to team up with a group of hyenas to de-throne his brother and it makes for truly heart breaking viewing.

Scar leaves a trap for his brother and nephew, luring the cub into a gorge which is soon to be filled by a herd of wildebeest. No animal has a chance against a stampede and after getting Simba caught in the middle of it, Mufasa shows what a great father he is by jumping in after him.

But the result is not good. He manages to get Simba to safety but it comes at a big cost – his own life. He attempts to escape up the walls of the gorge and upon almost making it to the top, he’s greeted by Scar who sends him falling to his death.

Simba then finds his father, in an immensely sad scene and is told by Scar that he’s responsible for his death and he needs to flee. So that’s exactly what he does, leaving his evil uncle to rule and him in exile.

But Simba’s story is one of becoming an adult, redemption and making his father proud (along with a bit of Hakuna Matata) which is what makes this such a gripping watch. So it’s no surprise that it won two Oscars.

Its success has led to a beautifully re-mastered version of the Lion King which was released in 2019, along with extravagantly transferring it to the West End with the superb musical version.
