“The Lion King” quotes(1994)
Plot – The mighty lion Mufasa, the savannah’s king, is celebrating the birth of his heir Simba with his wife Sarabi. The shaman baboon Rafiki shows him to the varied crowd of animals that rejoices at the foot of the throne, a high cliff. However, the evil and jealous Scar, Mufasa's brother, plots to kill his brother and his nephew in order to accede to the throne with the help of the hyenas. Simba runs away after escaping to a series of accidents caused by the mean uncle, including being falsely accused of Mufasa’s death. Left alone, the lion cub is adopted by Timon and Pumbaa, a meerkat and a warthog. They encourage him to live by the philosophy of “Hakuna Matata”, the local motto that means 'without worries'. Time passes by and Simba grows up, forgetting about his social class. His childhood friend Nala - escaped from the devastating situation of her pride, with Scar and the hyenas that dominate the savannah - and Rafiki - that makes the shadow of Mufasa appear to encourage Simba to fight - convince the young heir of the throne to go back to his homeland. In this way, he can reestablish the harmony and the beauty of the past in the savannah.
