Lion cub and future king Simba searches for his identity. His eagerness to please others and penchant for testing his boundaries sometimes gets him into trouble.
Jim Cummings (voice of Ed the Hyena in this film) had to fill in for Jeremy Irons for the finale of "Be Prepared." Irons threw out his voice after performing the line, "you won't get a sniff without me!" The rest of his recording didn't sound powerful enough.
Life's not fair, is it? You see, I... well, I shall never be king. And you... shall never see the light of another day. Hmm-hmm-hmm, adieu.
Zazu: Didn't your mother ever tell you not to play with your food?
Disappearing Tree/Rock - When the wildebeest herd starts to stampede through the valley, Simba is first on top of the rock that is under the tree, in the valley. The next scene then shows Simba standing out in the open floor of the valley as the wildebeests come running at him, and now there is no tree or rock anywhere to be seen. Then as Simba is shown running away from the wildebeests, we can see the tree and rock in the background again.
Prior to the beginning of the movie is a brief words, "In remembrance of Frank Wells" message (Mr. Wells is a president of Disney Studios, who died prior to the film's release).
