Several years later, Nala, one of the lionesses, is roaming through the jungle where she finds Simba. She persuades him to return home to become the rightful King of Pride Rock. He, Timon and Pumbaa, the two that helped bring him up, and Nala all return to Pride Rock. He fights with Scar who meets his death and Simba becomes King of Pride Rock.

It does however contain some scenes that are a little disturbing and traumatizing that has left people of all ages with nightmares over the past twenty years.
The Fallen Angel
A dull, numb pain rings throughout my head. My limbs slowly start to feel extremely heavy and weak. Blood starts to pump around my body slowly, my heart picks up the pace and I open my eyes to see a white ceiling ahead. A strong smell of lemon fills the room, smells quite nice actually. Something digs into my back making me feel quite uncomfortable, but this thing I am lying on is quite squishy and comfortable. I move slightly to the right making myself more comfortable. I feel a presence nearby, a strange presence. Something, or someone nearby is licking my face.
The Fallen Angel
Midnight. Stars gleam in the night sky, the moon shines and shooting stars flash across the lakeside. Dragons roar in the distance, wolves howl, owls call and hawks circle in the sky searching for their prey. The wind shrieks ripping apart bushes and trees throwing leaves around in mini tornadoes. Snakes slither around searching for their prey to sink their teeth into, mice take cover underground from their attackers and warthogs try to keep quiet in the bushes hiding from the wolves.

The Little Mermaid. A love tale between a mermaid and a human with an evil sea witch standing in their way. Disney took this classic tale on and made it into a masterpiece with unforgettable characters and catchy songs we’d be singing for years to come. However, they created some terrifying scenes and one of the scariest villains Disney has ever made. This certainly is an unforgettable movie.
