'The Lion King' is a movie that all of us still enjoy like the day it first came out in 1994.
The character of young Simba symbolizes the growth from childish innocence to emotional maturity. When he finally steps up and claims his throne at Pride Rock, leaving his meaningless guilt behind, he gives us the hope that whatever hardships may await us, we might just make it too in our respective circles of life.
The story of 'The Lion King' teaches us that. However, scary our past may seem to us, in reality our guilt might be pointless, and sometimes we might just be making a mountain out of a molehill. Young Simba, in his sheltered view of the world, waits for the day when he could prove himself to be as brave as his father Mufasa. He waits for the day when he can be a king, so he won't have to listen to anyone anymore. This Disney movie also introduced us to 'Hakuna Matata', the famous saying of Timon and Pumbaa, which refers to living in the moment and not worrying about what is going to happen next. Arguably, this is one of the best movies by Walt Disney Pictures. Here, we have compiled a list of 'The Lion King' quotes from Simba that will inspire the lion inside you to claim its throne. Whether you are looking for 'The Lion King' quotes, best Disney quotes, or Simba and Nala quotes, you will find them here.
