*I'm getting really into this comic now, i hope you guys enjoy it!
So here's the idea, as a kid, i really wanted to see the united pride do something cool together as a team. Instead they just roar at the end of the movie. I don't know if it's just me, but i always thought that was a pretty lame ending to the Lion King legacy. So i decided to finish 'Simba's Pride' myself, the way i want it to end.
And it's not a story per say, it's more like a scene or sequence, in comic form, with a twist near the end. So here's the very simple plot to it: Basically there's a rival lion hanging around the Pridelands, a very unwelcome visitor. King Simba has himself driven out the rogue many times, but clearly the mysterious lion doesn't take him seriously and keeps returning. So Simba decides to lead his conjoined pride to where the rogue is, and drive it out as one powerful unit.
Oh! And i'm keeping Simba and Nala's original TLK 1 colors and designs. Oh my god, i HATE their designs in Lion King 2! They both look distorted and just not quite right. Simba is fatter and a lot darker for some reason, and Nala looks like someone spilled bleach on her. I know they had different artists for TLK 2 than they did for the first one, due to a lower budget, and a different animation company (Toon Disney) and that's fair enough. But they could've at least got their colors right! Geez! Even Pride Rock looks different! it's skinnier and a darker brown color. Come on Disney, get it together!
My song inspiration for this comic is called 'Fill My Heart' by Two Steps From Hell. Here's a Youtube link to it, if you're interested: [link]
