For media educator

One of Disney's most successful and beloved classic films, The Lion King is the story of the growth of the young lion cub Simba. Loosely based on William Shakespeare's Hamlet, Simba tragically loses his father and is driven into exile as an innocent, his father's death on his conscience. During his escape, Simba meets the wild pig Pumba and Timon, a member of the mongoose tribe, who take the young lion cub into their care and raise him into a young adult in their own, carefree way.
