Lots of grub jokes, catchy musical interludes and a satisfying villainess with the voice of Suzanne Pleshette.
It's a fun story that actually gives something more to the characters than most sequels do, from the animated Disney line or not.
A retread of "The Fox and the Hound"...
An ineffective sequel in the two ways that are most important: it does not live up to the original's visual legacy, and it does not expand the characters or setting in a meaningful or consistent way.
Simply put, we've seen it all before.
Better than countless animated films that have received big-screen releases.
Born of a desire to make money off of children who don't know any better and their indulgent parents who should.
While the first Lion King was what re-established Disney as a great studio, and it became a classic of the company, this sequel was pointless, unnecessary and overall stupid. This was clearly made to make a buck on the stature of the original film, and it was clear that there was no thought into how to would make an effective, fun and memorable sequel to The Lion King. There was absolutely nothing worth mentioning about this film, except it's a poorly written film with a boring, mediocre story. At least the animation is nice as usual; unfortunately the film has no substance for its plot. The first Lion King was a great film, but this sequel simply fails because of a poor story and an unconvincing cast. I know it's all animated, but the voice actors seem bored here, and the film just fails in terms of continuing the story of the first. Stick with the first film and avoid this film because there is nothing to please fans of the first film. If only there would have been more effort into making this film. The end result is a mediocre film that fails to be fun and entertaining. Just because it's a Disney film, doesn't necessarily mean it's good. The Lion King 2 Simba's Pride is a missed opportunity to make a good sequel to a great film. This film is mediocre and doesn't stand out, which is a shame because because The Lion King was such a great film for people of all ages.
A boring and dumb sequel that should not have been made, but i loved it as a kid so kids might get a kick out of it.
Th song's are actually quite good. This film is so under rated, its better then anything disney have put out after 2004
The Lion King did not need a sequel, although it isn't horrible, this movie was just Disney's attempt to get more money from the story.
