Product Description

Product Description

In this sequel to 'The Lion King', Simba's wilful daughter Kiara escapes her inept babysitters Timon and Pumbaa and goes in search of adventure. She wanders into the forbidden Outlands, where she encounters Kovu, a young cub who is following in the evil Scar's pawprints. However, Simba is forced to make difficult decisions when Kiara and Kovu fall in love.

From Amazon.co.uk

The Lion King II: Simba's Pride is another made-for-video sequel to a Disney masterpiece. As with the Beauty and the Beast and Pocahontas sequels, most of the recognisable vocal talents return, creating a worthwhile successor to the highest-grossing animated film ever. We pick up the story as the lion king, Simba (voiced by Matthew Broderick) and Nala (Moira Kelly) have a new baby cub, a girl named Kiara (Neve Campbell). Like her father before, she seeks adventure and ends up outside the Pridelands, where lions loyal to the evil Scar (who died in the original) have lived with revenge in their hearts. The leader, Zira (a spunky turn from Suzanne Pleshette), schemes to use her son Kovu (Jason Marsden) to destroy Simba. As luck with have it, Kiara has bumped into Kovu and fallen in love.

This all sounds familiar since all of Disney's straight-to-video sequels have played it very safe, nearly repeating the originals' story, tone, and pace. Perhaps there were too many cooks for this production. Besides the two screenplay credits, there are eight other writers credited for additional written material. The look of the film has none of the surprise of the original but is far superior to other animated videos. In fact, the film played in European cinemas.

For children, the sequel will be a favourite. The comic antics of Timon (Nathan Lane) and Pumba (Ernie Sabella) are enjoyable, as is Andy Dick as Nuka, the mixed-up older son of Zira. And there's plenty of action. The best element is the music. Relying on more African-influenced music, the five songs featured are far superior to those in Disney's other sequels. Zira's song of revenge, "My Lullaby," was cowritten by Buffy the Vampire Slayer creator Joss Whedon. The oustanding opening number, "He Lives in You", was created for the Lion King Broadway smash and now finds a whole new audience. --Doug Thomas

Okay first things first; if you're looking for a repeat of The Lion King, you won't find it here. The Lion King 2 is a sequel in the best sense of the word. It takes the story and characters of the first film and builds on them without being too afraid to step in another direction.
The constant references to Scar and the, um, 'scars', he has left may indeed turn some people off. Personally I loved it. Kiera and Kovu are worthy successors to Simba and Nala. Here we have characters who cannot escape the past, but unlike the first film where Simba is trying to escape HIS past, they are trapped in the shadow of events before their time. They weren't a part of Scar's betrayal or downfall yet they still live with the consequences. Their struggle to be seen as individuals away from their heritage is a metaphor that easily applies to the film as a whole and I for one think it is wholly successful.
The film is altogether darker than the first, (Scar's vengeful mate is a pretty twisted figure), but it works perfectly in it's context as a sequel. You watch The Lion King when you're young and fall in love with the beautiful artwork and songs, then you watch The Lion King 2 when you are a bit older and appreciate for the first time just how complex the first film was to leave such a legacy, and hopefully see it in a new light.
Some people won't want to view an old favourite in a new light, and I must admit I didn't watch this film out of choice, but the new characters soon had me involved in a whole new way, the new songs, (especially the emotional, 'He's Not One of Us'), are never far from my tongue, and in moments of doubt Timon and Pumba are there to ease you along.
There are many Disney sequels and most are straight-to-video for a reason, but if you dismiss The Lion King 2 on those principles, you'll miss out on a real gem.

After the huge success of the first Lion King film, it would take one outstanding sequel to match the appreciation that both audiences and critics gave to the predecessor. This is not an outstanding sequel, but it's a pretty solid, powerful followup nevertheless.

We all know that Disney have made some pretty bad sequels to their other classic movies in the past. Thankfully, this ranks as perhaps the best.

This film introduces Kiara, Simba's strong-willed, independent daughter who craves an exciting life away from her protective father's watchful eye. Despite Timon and Pumbaa's efforts, she quickly encounters danger. The danger is in the shape of another young lion, Kovu, who has been groomed to lead Scar's pride. The two lions quickly befriend each other and come to realise that they aren't so different - persuading Simba is the difficult part.

Like the first film, the animation is excellent (although not as good as the first), the storyline is strong and interesting (in fact, not to dissimilar to the first when you think about it). My favourite characters Timon and Pumbaa are on top form and the original all-star voice cast return for the movie. I hate it when other people are used to voice characters that we are very familiar with, and they sound nothing like the originals.

I have to say, that aside from the brilliant 'Can You Feel The Love Tonight', this film has even greater songs, my favourite being 'We Are One'.

This is a very good follow up, worthy of it's predecessor, and as long as you don't expect it to be as magnificent as the first (and what could be?), it should be enjoyed by most fans of the first 'Lion King'.

The Lion King II: Simba's Pride is by far one of the best, if not the best, Disney sequel produced to date. It has sold more copies than any other Disney sequel, and for good reason -- it is a worthy successor to the throne.

The animation is high quality, especially for a direct-to-video sequel. Instead of using hand-drawn characters and computers to color the images, TLK2 was done in traditional cel animation, unlike the original Lion King. This makes the movie even more classic, and easily appreciated not only for its wonderful story, but the artwork involved in creating it.

The story is stunning and picks up basically where TLK left off. Simba and Nala's daughter, Kiara, is being raised to become the future queen. In the meantime, she encounters a cub from a tribe of outsiders named Kovu, and they immediatly become friends. However, both of their families stand in the way of their friendship continuing, and they never see each other again until they are adults - and that's where things really get interesting! Zira, the leader of the outsiders and Scar's mate, is trying to kill Simba, and Kovu figures into the plan. In the end, both tribes clash in all out war. You'll just have to watch to see how the story ends.

Definitely a worthy sequel to the first, get a copy if you can, my three kids love it - especialy my daughter.

The story of Simba's daughter Kiara, is beautifully portrayed in this newfilm. The lions who have been banished from the Pride Lands now live theirseperate lives, but when Kiara wanders into their land as a cub, she meetsKovu, also a young cub. Simba comes to her rescue as Kovu's mother isabout to pounce, and the young couple are told not to see eachother again.
However as they grow older, Kovu is trained to take over from Scarr,and challenge Simba for the throne. He is told by his pack to trick Simbaand Kiara into believing he has changed, and will then kill them, claimingthe throne. However, Kovu falls for Kiara, and truly changes, much to thedisgust of his pack. The love is returned, and the film tells the story oftheir love, and the obstacles they must overcome.
A very good film,but not as good as the first. Great for children and adults alike. Amust-see.
