The long-awaited computer-animated remake of The Lion King arrived in 2019. Following its release, it overtook Frozen to become the highest-grossing animated film of all time. It experienced mixed reviews from critics, with its visual effects and music receiving praise and the character’s lack of originality drawing criticism.

Fans filled theatres in throngs to watch Simba flee his destiny following uncle Scar’s murder of Simba’s father, Mufasa. As Pride Rock suffers under Scar’s rule, Simba thrives in a desert oasis, eating bugs with warthog Pumba and meerkat Timon. Eventually, Simba gets some sense knocked into him, inspiring a triumphant return to his homeland.
