What’s the film about?
The Lion King follows the adventures of a young lion cub named Simba, next in line to be king of Pride Rock after his father, Mufasa. However, his wicked uncle, Scar, wishes to steal the throne from Mufasa and, alongside the cast-out hyenas, establish a dictatorship. Scar lures Simba into a stampede of wildebeests and Mufasa is killed trying to save him.
As Simba escapes, Scar finds him and manipulates him into believing he is responsible for his father’s death, so Simba goes into exile. While he is away, he meets unlikely friends Timon and Pumbaa. A few years pass and Simba is reunited with some familiar faces who convince him to go back home to the Pride Lands and stop his uncle’s reign of terror, returning natural order to the circle of life.

Can’t I just download The Lion King illegally for free?
You shouldn’t. Here are a few things to remember:
- It’s poor quality. Streaming takes ages to load and may cut out halfway through! It’s also usually in very bad quality.
- It risks your computer. When pirating films you get a lot of ads and pop-ups which may carry viruses that can damage your computer or laptop.
- It’s illegal. Disney works hard to bring great entertainment to fans. Pay your bit , sit back and enjoy.
- It’s so much easier to just sign up with Disney+, then you can also watch hundreds of other movies and TV shows from Disney, Marvel, Pixar, Star Wars, National Geographic and more.
