As part of the artistic zenith of Disney's second golden age of animation that began with The Little Mermaid, The Lion King was Disney's pride. As befits royalty, Simba's Pride was Disney's most ambitious direct-to-video production, ensuring the continuation of the circle of sales life for the franchise. This was the first of Disney's "next generation" sequels created to engage a new audience with the adventures of the offspring of already beloved Disney characters. Simba's daughter Kiara (Neve Campbell) resists her father's advice to "stay on the path I've marked out for you." Just as the original film echoed Shakespeare's Hamlet, so does the sequel borrow a page from the Bard's Romeo and Juliet (but with a much happier ending). Kiara meets Kovi, an "outsider" handpicked by the late Scar to follow in his paw prints. Kiara and Kovi become friends and fall in love, which Kovi's mother, Zira (Susanne Pleshette), plans to exploit to take revenge on Simba. Simba is not too pleased, either. Simba's Pride is not as primal an experience as The Lion King, but it is much more family friendly. The animation is impressive, if not as majestic, and the key voice cast is back, including Matthew Broderick as Simba and Nathan Lane and Ernie Sabella as veldt-belt comedians Timon and Puumba. Of the songs, "Love Will Find a Way," "We Are One," and "He Lives in You" (from the Broadway production) rank with the original's Oscar-winning score. Buffy the Vampire Slayer creator Joss Whedon penned Zira's wickedly funny "My Lullaby," in which she rapturously fantasizes a grisly end to Simba and daughter. Whether Simba's Pride is worthy of the Special Edition treatment is debatable, but parents can purchase this features-packed two-disc set with "Hakuna Matata" (that means "no worries," in case you've forgotten).
