Funny Quotations from The Lion King

The Lion King is an animated family adventure musical comedy film about a baby lion who thinks he killed his father, a king, so he flees into exile but later discovers the truth as he grows older and more mature with the help of unlikely characters. The film follows Simba, a lion cub, as he first thinks he killed his father until he finds out that it was his uncle and that the only person who can stop him from taking over the Pride Lands is himself. Directed by Roger Allers and Rob Minkoff. Starring the voices of Matthew Broderick, James Earl Jones, Nathan Lane, Rowan Atkinson, and Whoopi Goldberg.
