A young lion cub named Simba just can't wait to be king. But the sudden death of his father, Mufasa, and the treacherous actions of his Uncle Scar lead Simba into exile and ultimately on a hero's journey of self-discovery. Adopting the "hakuna matata" philosophy of his comical jungle guardians -- a warthog and a meerkat (Pumbaa and Timon) -- Simba eventually comes to terms with his destiny and returns home to Pride Rock to help put things right.
