This is a direct-to-video sequel to The Lion King. Usually, these kind of sequels would suck, but, in this case, this is a very good film. I'm actually relieved that this was a good film, because I'm such a big fan of the original. This time, the protagonist is Simba's daughter, Kiara (that does seem to be a bit of the custom with most direct-to-video Disney sequels). Rather than just rehash the story from the first movie, they actually decide to continue the story like a good sequel should. It takes different approaches than the first movie did. For example, while Simba was all "Oh, I just can't wait to be king!", Kiara doesn't want to be queen at all. The songs are also very good in this. It's like Elton John and Tim Rice returned to do the songs in this. The animation in this movie is pretty good, though, since it is on a direct-to-video budget, the animation is nowhere near as good. This movie is said to be based off Romeo and Juliet, but I really don't see it except for the very basics. Even though this is a good film, I still say that the original lion king is the superior movie. But as is, this movie is decent. I'm glad i saw it. i might even see it a few more times. Despite its flaws, this is an overall very good film. If you liked the first movie, you'll probably like this one.
