The Lion King II: Simba's Pride (1998)
Simba and Nala have a daughter, Kiara. Timon and Pumbaa are assigned to be her babysitters, but she easily escapes their
care and ventures into the forbidden lands. There she meets a lion cub named Kovu and they become friends. What she and
her parents do not know is that Kovu is the son of Zira - a banished follower of the now-dead Scar. She plans to raise
Kovu to overthrow Simba and become the king of the Pride Lands. This tests not only Kiara and Kovu's relationship as they
mature, but Simba's relationship with his daughter.
The Lion King 1½ (2004)
Timon and Pumbaa start to watch the original Lion King movie, but Timon keeps insisting to fast forward to when they come
in, because they weren't seen in the beginning of the story or anywhere until halfway through. Pumbaa suggests telling the
audience their story, which begins before Simba's journey begins. Through this, we meet Timon's mother and Uncle Max,
discover why he left his meerkat colony, where he learned Hakuna Matata, how he meets Pumbaa, and the perils they encountered
while searching for their dream home.
