THE CIRCLE OF LIFE
Sunrise awakens the animals of Africa to gather at the foot of pride rock, paying homage to the newborn prince, Simba, son of Mufasa, the Lion King. The Circle of Life, the way of the Pride Lands and all who dwell there, tells of how all things are connected, how all animals depend upon one another for survival, and how birth itself is just the beginning of the circle.
But Simba's journey takes a different route, when his evil uncle, Scar, starts a Wildebeest stampede. The Lion King Mufasa is killed, and young Simba leaves to exile, thinking that it's all his fault. Meanwhile, Scar and his hyenas take over the Pride Lands and lead it to ruin.
Guide Simba as he explores his future kingdom. Overcome the wicked hyenas in the Elephant Graveyard. Experience real power as Simba grows into an adult lion. Only then will Simba be ready to challenge his ruthless uncle, Scar, and take his rightful place in the Circle of Life.
