The Lion King II: Simba's Pride is a 1998 direct-to-video film released by the Walt Disney Company on October 27, 1998, as a sequel to the 1994 film The Lion King. It premiered a year after the Broadway musical with same name began its production. The film centers around Simba's daughter, Kiara, who falls in love with Kovu, a male lion who was raised in a pride of Scar's followers, who are Simba's enemies. Desperate to be together, they must overcome the two obstacles that are keeping them apart: Simba and Kovu's mother, Zira.

Simba[edit]

  • [to Kiara jokingly playing with her] Where do you think you're going in such a hurry? [picks Kiara up with his paw, and puts her under him]
  • That's like saying you don't want to be a lion. It's in your blood... as I am. We are part of each other.
  • [sternly] Kiara... I don't want you talking with him. [softening] I want to talk with him.
  • Kovu, I was wrong. You belong here. Let's go home - all of us.
  • I banished you from the Pride Lands. Now you and your young cub, GET OUT!

Kiara[edit]

  • [to Timon and Pumbaa] I'm not just a princess, you know. That's only half of who I am!
  • [runs out of the den at Pride Rock, looks at the view of the Pridelands] Wow! [She starts to run down, but is caught by Simba just in time]
  • (to Simba, after he banishes Kovu) You will NEVER be Mufasa!
  • (to Simba, after Zira's death) Daddy... I tried.
  • A wise king once told me "We are one". I didn't understand him then. Now I do.
  • Cool. The Outlands. I wonder what's out there.

Kovu[edit]

  • I'm sorry, Mother! She didn't seem so bad.
  • He wasn't my father, but he was still... part of me.
  • [talking to himself] Okay, I have to tell her today. Oh, where do I start? "Kiara, Zira had a plot, and I was part of it, but I don't want to be... because... it's because I love you." [exhales] She'll never believe me, but I've gotta try.

Zira[edit]

  • These lands belonged to Scar!
  • Oh no, Simba. We have barely begun. [looks down at Kiara and chuckles wickedly]
  • Simba is injured and weak. Now is the time to attack! We shall take his entire kingdom, BY FORCE!
  • I'll never let it go! [whispers] This is for you, Scar!
  • I am home! [grins and snarls as lightning flashes] ATTACK!!!
  • Nuka is dead because of you. YOU'VE KILLED YOUR OWN BROTHER!

Timon[edit]

  • Pumbaa, let me define, BABYSITTING!!
  • Timon, Pumbaa. Great! Now that we all know each other, GET OUT OF OUR PRIDELANDS!!
  • Boy, does she need a hobby!
  • Pfft! That's not a king. That's a fuzzy maraca!
  • I never even really met your tyrant. I mean, uh, Scar! Oh, heck of a guy! A little moody, but--
  • [cocks Pumbaa's tail] Don't anybody move! This thing's loaded! I'll let ya have it!
  • [rehearsing the confession to Simba] Alright let's see. Uh, "Gee Simba! The good news is, we found your daughter. The bad news is, we dropped the warthog on her. Is there a problem with that?"
  • [growling; to Kiara] Roar! Work with me!

Pumbaa[edit]

  • Don't worry, Kiara! Uncle Pumbaa's coming!
  • I thought our motto was "Hakuna Matata".

Nuka[edit]

  • Oh, who cares? I should have been the chosen one. I am the oldest, I am the strongest, I am the smartest-- OH, THESE TERMITES!!! [starts biting every place he can find on his body, and rolls around on the ground; Vitani watches, smirking]
  • [annoyed] Kovu, Kovu, Kovu. Scar wasn't even his father. He just took him in. [to Cub Vitani, who is biting on a root] Oh, hey, Vitani. Where's little termite Kovu, the "chosen one"? [touches the root with a claw; it snaps, and Vitani tumbles backward; Nuka guffaws]
  • Roasty toasty princess, roasty toasty princess! [finishes lighting the grass on fire (in a circle around him) and jumps in excitement, but then pauses] Hey, is it hot here or is that just me? [realizes he's surrounded by fire] FIRE!!!

Vitani[edit]

  • No, mother! [faces Kiara then back to Zira] Kiara's right. [walks to join Simba's pride] Enough.
  • Where's your pretty daughter, Nala?
  • Mother's gonna be mad. She told you to watch him.

Others[edit]

  • Rafiki: [chuckling] It is a girl.
  • Timon and Pumbaa: [Rafiki reveals Kiara is a girl.] GIRL?!? OY!! [They faint.]
  • Rafiki: Kovu...Kiara...together? This is the plan? [to the sky, talking to Mufasa] ARE YOU CRAZY?!? This will never work! Oh, Mufasa. You been up there too long! Your head is in the clouds!
  • Adult Vitani: Where's your pretty daughter, Nala?
  • Cub Vitani: Hey, Kovu, wanna fight? [growling]
  • Nuka: Roasty toasty princess, roasty toasty princess! [finishes lighting the grass on fire (in a circle around him) and jumps in excitement, but then pauses] Hey, is it hot here or is that just me? [realizes he's surrounded by fire] FIRE!!!
  • Mufasa: [in Simba's Nightmare] Simba! Simba...! HELP ME!!
  • Scar: [in Simba's Nightmare] GOTCHA!!! Trust me!

Dialogue[edit]

Timon: I'm tellin' ya, buddy, it's gonna be like old times: You, me, and the little guy.
Rafiki: [laughs] It is a girl.
Timon: [obliviously] Girl.
Timon and Pumbaa: [shocked] GIRL?! Oi! [they faint.]

Simba: Zira.
Zira: Simba! [Two lionesses, Nala, and Timon and Pumbaa appear] Nala.
Nala: Zira.
Timon: Timon, Pumbaa. Great! Now that we all know each other, GET OUT OF OUR PRIDELANDS!!
Zira: Your Pridelands?! [roars making Timon scream then hide in Pumbaa's hair] These lands belonged to Scar!
Simba: I banished you from the Pride Lands. Now you and your young cub, GET OUT! [Cub Kovu and Cub Kiara hide farther behind their parents]
Zira: Oh, haven't you meet my son, Kovu? He was hand-chosen by Scar to follow in his paw-prints, and become... King. [Simba growls as Cub Kovu looks worried]
Timon: Pfft! That's not a king. That's a fuzzy maraca!
Zira: Kovu was the last born before you exiled us to the outlands, where we have little food, less water.
Simba: You know the penalty for returning to the Pride Lands.
Zira: But the child does not! However... if you need your pound of flesh, here.
[Nudges a terrified Kovu over to Simba, who glares at him. Kovu shivers in fright.]
Simba: Take him and get out. We're finished here. [turns around and picks Kiara up with his mouth as he's getting ready to leave]
Zira: Oh, no, Simba, we have barely begun. [looks down at Kiara and chuckles wickedly, then turns and picks up Kovu]
[Kovu and Kiara look back at each other, sadly]
Cub Kiara: [softly] Goodbye...
Cub Kovu: [softly] Goodbye...

Nuka: [annoyed] Kovu, Kovu, Kovu. Scar wasn't even his father. He just took him in. [to Cub Vitani, who is biting on a root] Oh, hey, Vitani. Where's little termite Kovu, the "chosen one"? [touches the root with a claw; it snaps, and Vitani tumbles backward; Nuka guffaws]
Cub Vitani: Nuka, where's Kovu? Did you leave him out there on his own again?
Nuka: Hey, it's every lion for himself out here. [scratching himself] That little termite's gotta learn to be on his own.
Cub Vitani: Mother's gonna be mad. She told you to watch him.
Nuka: [continuing to scratch] Oh, who cares? I should have been the chosen one. I am the oldest, I am the strongest, I am the smartest-- OH, THESE TERMITES!!! [starts biting every place he can find on his body, and rolls around on the ground; Vitani watches, smirking] I could be a leader if she'd just give me a chance!
Cub Vitani: [scoffs] Yeah, right. Why don't ya tell that to her?
Nuka: Yeah? That's cause I won't!
Cub Vitani: Oh, yeah? [chuckles] Here's your chance.
Nuka: [hears Zira growling angrily] What? Oh... mother. Mother, hi! [laughing as Zira returns holding Cub Kovu in her mouth] Mother, I caught some field mice for your dinner. [Zira doesn't get his attention] I left them by the, um... by the... okay. [runs back to Zira with Cub Vitani]
Cub Vitani: Hey, Kovu. [Zira drops her cub onto the ground] Wanna fight? [growling]
Zira: You were supposed to be WATCHING HIM!!
Cub Kovu: [worried] It's not his fault! I went off on my own.
Zira: What were you doing?!
Cub Kovu: Nothing.
Zira: Who has made us Outsiders?
Cub Kovu: Simba.
Zira: Who killed Scar?
Cub Kovu: Simba!
Zira: What have I told you about THEM?!
Cub Kovu: I'm sorry, Mother! She didn't seem so bad. I-I-I... thought we could be...
Zira: Friends? [walking around him] You thought you'd get to the daughter, and Simba would welcome you with open arms? What an idea. [smiles] What... an idea! You brilliant child. I'm so proud of you. [scratching his hair] You have the same conniving mind that made Scar so... powerful.

Cub Kiara: Whoa! Cool. The Outlands. I wonder what's out there. [Timon and Pumbaa are in the grass sneaking up towards Kiara. Once she turns back, she, Timon and Pumbaa scream at each other that it makes her fall in a pond]
Pumbaa: Don't worry, Kiara! Uncle Pumbaa's coming! [jumps into the pond after her]
Timon: Oh, no! No. [rehearsing the confession to Simba] Alright let's see. Uh, "Gee Simba! The good news is, we found your daughter. The bad news is, we dropped the warthog on her. Is there a problem with that?"
Pumbaa: Kiara? Kiara?
Timon: PUMBAA! Let me define, BABYSITTING!! [Pumbaa moves out of the way to show Kiara coughing then she looks at him]
Pumbaa: [smiling nervously] Sorry.

Zira: I now see the path to our glorious return to power!
Cub Kovu: But I don't want--
Zira: HUSH! Hush, my little one. You must be exhausted. [singing] ♪ Sleep, my little Kovu. Let your dreams take wing. One day when you're big and strong, you will be a king. ♪
Cub Kovu: [showing a embarrassment smile] Good night.
Zira: Good night, my little prince. Tomorrow your training intensifies.

Zira: You are ready! [inspects him] Nice, very nice. [chuckles] You have the same blackness in your soul that Scar had. What is your destiny?
Adult Kovu: I will avenge Scar... take his place in the Pride Lands.
Zira: Yes. What have I taught you?
Adult Kovu: Simba is the enemy.
Zira: [grinning] And what must you do?!
Adult Kovu: I must KILL him!

Timon: Tango-Charlie-Alpha. What's your position?
Pumbaa: Uh...upright, head turned slightly to the left, tail erect.
Timon: [speaks under his breath] Why do I bother?

Nuka: Let's LIGHT FIRE!!! [Vitani chuckling while lighting a trail of fire; Nuka laughing evilly] Roasty toasty princess, roasty toasty princess! [finishes lighting the grass on fire (in a circle around him) and jumps in excitement, but then pauses] Hey, is it hot here or is that just me? [realizes he's surrounded by fire] FIRE!!! [shoots out then laughs evilly again]
Adult Vitani: Come on! [pulls him away]

[Simba has been telling Kovu about Scar]
Simba: Scar couldn't let go of his hate, and in the end, it destroyed him.
Kovu: [deeply shocked] I've never heard the story of Scar that way. He truly was a killer.
Simba: [glances at the burnt plains around them] Fire is a killer. Sometimes, what's left behind can grow better than the generation before... [unearths a small plant from the dust] if given the chance.

[After Nuka is killed trying to pursue Simba, because Kovu let him go]
Zira: Scar... watch over my poor Nuka. [turns and notices Kovu] YOU! [she slashes him across the face, leaving a scar like the one Scar had] What have you DONE?!
Adult Kovu: I-I-I didn't mean to... It wasn't my fault, I... [snarling] I did... nothing!
Zira: Exactly! And in doing so, you betrayed your pride! Betrayed Scar!
Adult Kovu: I want nothing more to do with him!
Zira: That's why you cannot escape it! Nuka is dead because of YOU!
Adult Kovu: No...
Zira: You've killed your own brother!
Adult Kovu: NO!!! [flees]
Zira: Let him go. Simba has hurt me for the last time... now he's corrupted Kovu! [Vitani and the Outlanders gather] Listen to me... Simba is injured and weak. Now is the time to attack! We shall take his entire kingdom, BY FORCE! [The Outlanders roar in reply as she laughs evilly]

Simba: Why have you come back?!
Adult Kovu: Because... I had nothing to do with--
Simba: You don't belong here!
Adult Kovu: Please... I ask your forgiveness.
Adult Kiara: Daddy, please... listen to him!
Simba: Silence! When you first came here, you asked for judgment... and I pass it now.
Animals: Kick him out! That's right! Judgement day is here!
Simba: EXILE!
[Kiara gasps in shock]
Animals: Exile him! Exile! Exile!
Adult Kiara: No... Kovu!

Adult Kiara: Father... please reconsider!
Simba: You will not go anywhere without an escort from now on.
Adult Kiara: No! That's not--
Simba: He used you to get to me!
Adult Kiara: No! He loves me. Why me?!
Simba: Because you are my daughter! You will not leave Pride Rock. You will stay where I can keep an eye on you... away from him.
Adult Kiara: You don't know him!
Simba: I know he's following in Scar's paw-prints! And I must follow in my father's.
Adult Kiara: You will NEVER be Mufasa! [runs off, weeping]

Zira: It's over, Simba! I have dreamed of nothing else for years!
Timon: Boy, does she need a hobby.
Simba: Final chance, Zira: Go home.
Zira: I am home! [grins and snarls as lightning flashes] ATTACK!!!

[Last lines of the film]
[Just as Simba and Zira are about to fight, Kiara and Kovu leap in between them]
Simba: Kiara?
Zira: Kovu! Move!
Simba: Stand aside!
Adult Kiara: Daddy, this has to stop!
Zira: You're even weaker than I thought. Get out the way!
Adult Kovu: You'll never hurt Kiara, or Simba! Not while I'm here.
Zira: [scoffs] Ha!
Simba: Stay out of this.
Adult Kiara: A wise king once told me "We are one". I didn't understand him then. Now I do.
Simba: But... they...
Adult Kiara: "Them"? "Us"? Look at them! They are us! What differences do you see?
[As both prides stand stunned in realization, the rain stops and the clouds clear; Simba smiles and nuzzles Kiara]
Zira: Vitani! Now!
Adult Vitani: No, mother! [faces Kiara then back to Zira] Kiara's right. [walks to join Simba's pride] Enough.
Zira: If you will not fight, then you will die as well.
[The other lionesses walk over to join Simba's pride]
Zira: Wh-wha... Where are you going?! Get back here!
Simba: Let it go, Zira. It's time to put the past behind us.
Zira: [Last words] I'll NEVER let it go! [whispers] This is for you, Scar! [leaps to attack but Kiara attacks her and herself down into the canyon]
Simba: Kiara!
Kovu: Kiara!
Simba: [carefully jumps down to rescue her] Kiara! [Kiara and Zira continue to fall with Zira yelling until they hanging over a cliff]
Nala: Hold on, Kiara! [sees the river flooding towards through the canyon] Simba. [Simba jumps onto another rock canyon] SIMBA! The river! [Simba sees the river then safely jumps to hold onto another part of the canyon to rescue Kiara. Meanwhile, Kiara sees Zira hanging on the cliff]
Kiara: [holds her paw out] Zira, give me your paw! [Zira almost hits her by swiping her paw and slowly slips further down off the cliff] Zira, come on... I'll help you. [Zira lets go and falls into the river to her death while she yells, drowning; only with her paw to be shown before the flood ends. Kiara looks in the river for Zira but she doesn't see her and sighs in worry]
Simba: Kiara. [holds his paw out for her]
Kiara: [grabbing her father's paw] Daddy... I tried. [they get themselves out of the canyon and back on to the ground]
Nala: Kiara! [she and Simba hug her]
Pumbaa: Wow, that was really brave!
Timon: Yee-hah!
Kiara: [walking over to Kovu who looks worried] Kovu.
Kovu: Oh, Kiara. [they hug with their heads]
Simba: Kovu? [Kovu walks over to Simba] I was wrong. You belong here. [Kovu smiles as Simba smiles with Kiara] Let's go home. [to the outlanders] All of us. [Back at Pride Rock, the outlanders and the pridelanders are seeing Simba and Nala with Kovu and Kiara together]
Pumbaa: [with tearful eyes] I love moments like this!
Timon: Yeah.
Timon and Pumbaa: Love! Not like, love! [they sob loudly as Zazu covers himself with his wings from Timon and Pumbaa's tears. Simba, Nala, Kiara, and Kovu walk up towards Pride Rock; Simba roars, then Kovu roars; all four of them roaring with the outlanders and pridelanders roaring, and animals cheering below]
Mufasa: [voice only] Well done, my son... We are one.
