The Lion King
The Disney film The Lion King is about the adventures of a family of lions - particularly those of Simba, the son of King Mufasa and Queen Sarabi.
The villains of this story are the lion Scar and the hyenas Shenzi, Banzai and Ed. Scar feels his throne is in jeopardy when Simba is born. So he kills Mufasa and convinces Simba that it's his fault.
Out of desperation, Simba leaves the lions, but finds loyal friends in Timon the meerkat and Pumbaa, the warthog. His old friends, the lioness Nala and the mandrill Rafiki, encourage him to return and take his rightful place as the Lion King.
