Simba flees his home village at Pride Rock after the murder of his father, Mufasa. Scar, Simba’s uncle, convinces Simba that his father’s death is his fault. Simba meets Timon and Pumba and learns a new philosophy on life, “Hakuna Matata”, which means no worries. Simba is happy in his new life until he bumps into Rafiki, a mandrill who reminds him of his past and shows him that his father stills live within him. Simba returns to Pride Rock to claim his home as King.
