Newborn lion cub Simba is the heir to Mufasa, the respected King of the Pride Lands. Mufasa looks after his son, yet when Simba tries to break away from his family, he finds himself in sticky situations. With stampedes chasing him and his life put in grave danger, Simba has to protect himself. Forming close friendships with Timon and Pumbaa along the way, Simba reflects on how important the Pride Lands is to him, remembering who he is and what he left behind.
