Disney's record-breaking musical adventure tells the tale of lion cub Simba who is born to be king but falls victim to the schemes of his evil uncle Scar. When his father is killed and he takes the rap, Simba (Matthew Broderick) flees Pride Rock and is befriended by a manic meerkat and a windy warthog until he can take his rightful place. But Uncle Scar (Jeremy Irons) is forever on his tail. With reference points including Bambi, Hamlet and The Jungle Book, this African odyssey has much to live up to. And by Hakuna Matata, it pulls it off in triumphant style.
