There she meets a lion cub named Kovu and they become friends. What she and her parents do not know is that Kovu is the son of Zira - a banished follower of the now-dead Scar. She plans to raise Kovu to overthrow Simba and become the king of the Pride Lands. This tests not only Kiara and Kovu's relationship as they mature, but Simba's relationship with his daughter.

Why is this Movie Given So Much Crap? (by apeclaw2011)
I don't understand why this movie is regarded to as trash. Of course it is not as good as the first movie but it comes pretty stinkin close! The animation is actually equal too the quality of the original movie. I think that it is the most perfect Disney sequel ever! It is a very interesting story that shows Simba as a father. It is cool because you get to see Simba has now become basically, like his father. Every time I see this movie, I can feel that Simba has the same sense of power that Mufasa had. It has a fun and sweet story line and a great ending. When this movie was being made, <more>
the goal was to create a sequel to a movie that everyone loves so that they could spend more time with the characters. I think despite what everyone say's they created an awesome, spectacular Disney film!
Wonderful, dramatic tale, an interpretation of William Shakespeare's "Romeo & Juliet" in animal kingdom. The Lion King 2: Simba's Pride - best direct-to-video sequel ever: wise, romantic storyline, beautiful characters - some of them looks like much better than characters from 1st movie. Kovu, Vitani and of course Kiara - I love them all sooo much! Great songs and music - heartwarming "Love Will Find a Way" always make me cry. Too pity it wasn't released in cinemas - I hope Disney will release it in Blu-Ray format alongside with 1st movie. Thank you, Darrel <more>
Rooney! The Lion King 2: Simba's Pride - one of the last great traditional cartoons from Walt Disney Pictures! 10/10
Excellence at its best...why so many haters? (by amcmartinez)
So I finally decided to break down and write a review for Lion King 2. I might seem like I'm ranting but I'm just so tired of people bashing this work of creation. Lion King 2 is not bad! ITS NOT! And I guess a lot of people are saying it is because they are expecting to see Lion King all over again. Well my advice to those is to hit the replay button on LK because its not happening. Sequels are not meant to be exact replicas of their predecessors. So, those who are looking for that with this movie are going to be rudely disappointed. Having that said, I think it can be agreed that <more>
LK2 brought something a little new to the table.So first for those people complaining about the animation, it didn't suck. Either I'm blind or you are because I see the same quality animation as the first. Now I will admit LK2 wasn't as "flashy" as the original but it's not supposed to be. Its animation is more toned and a bit darker to fit the mood of the script. We can see this by just looking at Priderock , which had been shown from the other side to convey the shadowy feelings of Simba.Well since I brought that up I guess I'll start off with him first. Simba ,of course, is a big part of the movie. He is seen struggling to deal with his lingering hatred of his uncle Scar. He holds this resentment against Kovu and the Outlanders. Kiara is the daughter of King Simba making her a princess. She is strong minded and very independent. We can see this from her desire to do things herself and staying true to her heart. Bad-boy Kovu on the other hand is a lion trained by his evil mother, Zira, to befriend Kiara so that he may overthrow Simba thus, avenging Scar.In the end Kiara and Kovu fall in love and show others that love is the most important thing above all, no matter what you look like or come from. So the two groups put an end to their bitter feud and decide to join together . They now see that there is no difference between them because they're all lions; They are one.And so the light finally shines on the other side of Priderock. The story actually gives an eye opening lesson to people. We shouldn't judge others by their race or their background. This is still an ever so prevalent issue in our society that I wish would just disappear. Well that's the lesson I got from watching this movie. It seems though that some people forgot their "Upendi" and "Hakuna Matata" back in Neverland because they're so oblivious to the fact LK2 is a stunning movie that conveys a strong message.This movie was fantastic! Whats not to love? The animation was on key, the plot had good substance, and the characters are lovable and totally unforgettable. What more do you people want?! Not to mention the amazing song "We Are One" which makes my eyes turn into Niagara falls every time I hear it. *Sniff Sniff* Now I miss Mufasa ...anyway. Asides from Lion King I don't think this movie could have did any better. Kudos to you Disney! Anyone who disagrees,oh well, I guess thats just you and your narrow minded opinion. #LEH
The Lion King has become my favorite movie. The Lion King II - Simba's Pride is in my top ten. The story picks up at the end of The Lion King, with the birth of the new heir to the Pridelands. The baby cat is introduced to the kingdom in the same manner as Simba, with Rafiki the mandrill holding up the child atop Pride Rock for all to see. As Timon and Pumbaa admire the child, Rafiki remarks that this child is in fact a girl. And from there, the story only gets more interesting. In a tale reminiscent of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, a forbidden love blossoms betwixt the young <more>
princess Kiara and the rogue Kovu, the heir to the late usurper king Scar. Banished to the Outlands by an overprotective Simba, Kovu's difficult life is overseen by his mother Zira, Scar's queen. Somehow, the young lovers must prevail against the overwhelming odds against them, and this is wherein the greatness of this movie lies. No single character is without flaw, and every aspect of the movie is rendered in shades of gray. And that is what makes it so great to me.The movie isn't quite perfect, though. Rowan Atkinson's absence as Zazu is a minor lament, while Andy Dick's casting as Nuka, while quite effective, does leave one to wonder why Disney picked such a controversial personality for a kid friendly movie. The "Upendi" sequence is a bit long and slightly out of place, while Zira's demise seems altogether too easy. Still, the movie stands out, especially among Disney sequels, as extremely good. Matthew Broderick's mastery of the character Simba continues unabated here, while Neve Campbell and Jason Marsden take to their characters with equal skill. The real standout among the cast is Suzanne Plechette's voicing of Zira. Her steely, cold-blooded voicing of the ruthless and calculating villain stands on equal footing with Jeremy Iron's voicing of Scar in The Lion King. One can only wonder what these two could have done if Scar and Zira had appeared together on screen. Sadly, we'll never know, as Ms. Plechette succumbed to cancer in 2008.Visually, the film continues with the stunning animation seen in The Lion King. Both the rich Pridelands and the barren Outlands are a feast to the eyes. The contrast between the Prideland lions and the angular, almost emaciated Outland lions is striking, and well handled. The music is equally good as that of the first movie, with such standout tracks as He Lives In You the opening song; it originally appeared on the 1995 album Rhythm Of The Pride Lands and the chilling My Lullaby Zira's song; much like Be Prepared, Suzanne Plechette and her fellow actors did their own singing for this song . All in all, this movie is a great deal of fun, and is a very worthy addition to one's movie library, along with the original.
It's barely possibly to follow up a film like The Lion King better than Simba's Pride did. Absolutely terrific. (by killbill500)
This is one of the greatest sequels to anything I've ever, ever seen. In fact, some things are almost as good as things in the original, which is saying something considering it's a Direct-to-DVD film with presumably a far lower budget. It's ridiculously good for a sequel, and probably the closest a sequel has ever come to the brilliance of an original without actually being a better film altogether.Following up a masterpiece like 'The Lion King' is not an easy thing to do, but this film did a fantastic job. All the original voice-actors are back except for Rowin Atkinson <more>
as Zazoo and even some new ones.It's more humour-based than the original Lion King movie, and I personally think it's a bit funnier. It also has some absolutely excellent animation that for the most part is pretty much just as good as the original's. And, it's still a dark film in parts, so don't worry about that.
Not bad for a straight to video animated sequel. An impressive point is that they got all the primary voice actors back. The animation quality is quite good considering that it is a straight to video throwaway sequel. However I found the color difference between this film and the original a bit distracting. This film is also noticeable darker all around, not only in the colors but also in the plot. At times the plot is so pitch black I wonder if this movie was for kids or for the kids who had seen the original and grown up a little. Even the lyrics of the songs hang a little heavier in the <more>
air. But the song sequences they are actually memorable unlike most found in sequel movies. Where the first film was Hamlet with lions this film was Romeo and Juliet with lions and a happier ending. Overall this movie wasn't bad and it had its moments but it was defiantly not the definitive work of the trilogy.
Almost as good as the original, with a brilliant song! (by Mightyzebra)
The five main reasons I like this film: 1. The song "We Are One" is a spectacular and I prefer it to all of the songs in the first film! 2. Kiara is a really good character and so is Kovu! I also like Nala in this one, although I prefer her in the last Lion King film. 3. I prefer this one's plot to the one in the first film! I think it's slightly more planned out than the last one's plot. 4. The animation is really good! There's one bit where Kiara and Kovu jump into the air and they animate it so well it looks - spooky! 5. It's a really good sequel for all the <more>
fans of the first film! Enjoy! : Kiara is the future queen, unfortunately for Simba, she is in love with an outsider, whom she is forbidden to marry. Kovu is also supposed to "follow in Scar's pawprints"...
Disney is used to send direct-to-video sequels of their successful films just for profit. Well, this isn't the exception, but this time they also cared about the quality. Simba's pride may not be as great as the original movie, but it can stand by itself as a good film. Again we have a storyline based upon a Shakespeare tragedy, some good new characters and songs. Soundtrack is not bad at all, excepting "Upendi" that's quite an annoying song. As the first one, this isn't a "just for kids" film, there are lots of drama moments not suitable for kids, even <more>
when the roughest scenes were cut Search them in youtube .As negative, Fans found quite disappointing that the films story contradicts the story told in "TLK: Six new adventures" books, or at least, there is a gap left that's never explained. And the movie in the overall isn't as deep and moving as the original.Watch it with low expectations and you won't feel disappointed.
There were some flaws with the movie. The animation is possibly a 6/10. There were a lot of animation errors that at some points in the movie, made it look very lazily done. The animation wasn't entirely broken, but there were definitely parts that could have been brushed over. Not as good as the first Lion King.The voice acting was a 8/10. There were scenes where some of the lines spoken were just whispers, and were hard to hear without turning up the volume. A few times there could almost be a hint of awkwardness in the lines, but they were forgivable. I think that the VAing was <more>
slightly improved over the first Lion King, where it sounded like the voice actors were afraid to raise there voice to add to the drama. The music would be a 7.5/10. A few of the songs were simple and short, almost like they were simply added in to say, hey, we made a song. Other songs were just there for fun and to progress the story quickly. There were a few great compositions and songs that really stood out though. The first Lion King did a better job with songs. The writing was a bit odd at times. Perhaps a 6/10 rating. Some lines felt dull and lifeless, others seemed to want to add to the drama but didn't quite do so. And yet others seemed plain and boring, almost cliché as though the writers couldn't think of what to write that would progress the story along. The characters still remained who they were, it didn't feel the writers had left anybody behind though. Timon and Pumbaa were still themselves, as well, which was great.Execution of story would be a 9/10 though, in my humble opinion. I feel that the writers and directors did a good job of telling a story, even if it didn't look or sound the prettiest. They did a good job of portraying Kiara as having the same curiosity that Simba had as a cub and Simba's struggle to raise her in a way that would prevent her from experiencing what he had gone through. It depicts him trying to stay in his father's paw steps and lead the pride in the right direction. Ever since watching this movie, I've began to realize that perhaps a movie doesn't need to have the best writing, acting and animations in the world to be good. Sometimes, it's the story behind it that can make the movie amazing, as long as it balances out with acting, music and animation. I thoroughly enjoyed this movie, and it has a special place in my favorite movies right up next to the first Lion King as a classic, and fitting end to the series, even if it's not the highest quality movie around. I would definitely recommend this movie to anybody who is looking to see if it's worthwhile to watch.
