AKA The Lion King vs. Hamlet
Do you know how similar the two are to each other? It's ridiculous. A list of the comparisons...
Simba (the suicidal lion prince who's forced to act) = Hamlet (the suicidal prince who is forced to act)
Nala and Rafiki = Horatio
-Only ones that can be fully confided in
Scar = Claudius
Ed, Shenzi and Banzai (the hyenas) = Polonius
Mufasa = King Hamlet (Hamlet's father)
"Something rotten in the state of Denmark" = Famine, bones and bad weather in Pride Rock.
Restoration of natural order.
Complete rip-off, but The Lion King ripped-off Hamlet well. And yes I thoroughly enjoy both well.
