Welcome to another episode of SithVamp Reviews, and welcome to Sequel Month. Yep, all throughout July I’m gonna be looking at sequels to movies I’ve already featured on the show. Let’s start off by returning to the Pride Lands as we take a look at: The Lion King 2: Simba’s Pride!
The Lion King 2: Simba’s Pride came out in 1998. The movie opens like the first one did: with a sunrise and animals marching to Pride Rock, only this time instead of the Circle of Life, we hear another song: He Lives in You. Sadly, the soundtrack of this movie isn’t by Elton John and Tim Rice. The animals are gathering around Pride Rock to see Simba’s daughter: Kiara (who will be the movie’s female lead). Even Mufasa’s spirit is watching from the sky. After the ceremony, Timon and Pumbaa are hoping that they will go on adventures with Kiara, just like they did with Simba when he was young, but they are shocked when Rafiki tells them Kiara is a girl.
