His uncle convinces Simba that Simba killed his father. He runs away out of shame. • Kimba the WhiteLion-an old anime Many of the scenes in The Lion King are identical to those in Kimba. Kimba is about a lion who’s dad and mom dies. He goes back to his homeland. However, there is an evil lion and his helpers trying to ruin Kimba’s plan.
