The King Lion is shot by poachers in the presence of his three cubs as part of Shere Khan the Bengal tiger’s plot to overthrow the king. But Young Simba, son of the King Lion, isn’t fooled; he suspects that the tiger will one day be his greatest enemy. Simba and his two sisters are adopted by a wolfpack – the same pack that had previously raised Mowgli the man-cub. The wolves and the other jungle animals teach the orphaned cubs everything they need to know and help them to gain the wisdom and strength they need. Together they aim to help Simba gain his rightful place on the throne of the Jungle.
