    I agreed with Gene and Roger what they said about “The Lion King II: Simba’s Pride”. I really loved this movie as a kid part of my childhood. Kiara, the daughter of Simba and Nala and heiress of all the empire befriends Kovu, the eldest son of Scar, and together they will try to reunite the two herds. Simba was not surprised that Kovu couldn’t be trusted when he tried to kill him like Scar, but actually, he changed. Kiara and Kovu had a really nice chemistry in their romance, like Romeo and Juliet. My favorite scene was the ending where they were celebrating in the Circle of Life with a happy ending. I also like the music and the songs, and one thing that I like they missed the point, and that is Hakuna Matata. It always stuck on my head. People like that song, too, and they could hum. Anyway, it’s not at the level of the main Disney animated movie released, and not as good as “The Lion King”, but it is a perfect romantic film, and it does continue the story very well. I was 1 year old before it came out, then I turned 2 in 1998. It was actually a good idea to not only for the sequels being released in theatrical movie theaters for years ago, but to make Direct-to-Videos and Direct-to-DVD sequels for the original films in video stores. Some sequels are good, and some others are bad. But anyway though, I could watch this movie forever more, and I could join Simba, Nala, Kovu, Kiara, and of course, Timon and Pumbaa in my wildest dream. A marginal thumbs up for me to “The Lion King II: Simba’s Pride”.

    The Lion King II: Simba’s Pride 3.5/4
