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.

I was a massive fan of the original, so decided to take the plunge and purchase Lion King 2: Simbas Pride.
What a disappointment it was.
The majority of the voice cast are back, apart from Rowan Atkinson as Zazu, his replacement, quite frankly, was terrible.

The storyline was poor as well, basically Scar had groomed a young cub to be his successor. Simbas daughter falls in love with him, basically a carbon copy of the original, only not as good.

Now to the songs, they're not a patch on the original, Elton John & Tim Rice are sorely missed in this one.

Lastly, the animation is not true to the original, most of the characters have gone a shade darker. The pridelands look NOTHING like it did in the original.

This film will probably divide opinion, but Disney should be ashamed of this effort.

No where near as good as the original movie, but still a good watch with some catchy songs! Sometimes with these sequels, the quality of the animation is compromised, however this has not been the case with this one.

I normally hate the films they bring out to preceded the big blockbusters as they use different voices and teh drawing quality goes south. This was one of the last great Disney drawn films before they messed it up with bad story lines and CGI

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.
