The Lion King may arguably be the masterpiece in the s Disney Renaissance era. Disney evidently wants us to understand that Sarabi and King Mufasa are married and monogamous, with Simba as their sole cub. Like a normal family, right?
Nala appears to have a close relationship with her mother, Sarafina. She was seen resting in her mother's paws at the start of the film, and willingly allowed her mother to bathe her, whilst Simba struggled to escape Sarabi's grasp. Nala and her daughter, Kiara appeared to have an affectionate relationship, as Nala wasn't as protective of her daughter as Simba was, and trusted her to make her own choices.

Skip navigation! Story from Movies. Disney's reboot of The Lion King is making waves not just for its photo-realistic computer animation that makes it look like all the animals are actually real, but because of its stellar voice cast as well.
In many ways, The Lion King is the first Disney animated feature to feature a love story that was not actually the central plot point of the entire movie. The Disney Renaissance was particularly keen on love stories, as it achieved major success with The Little MermaidBeauty and the Beastand Aladdin. Nala is one of the most important The Lion King characters, and not because she is being saved.
Nala is a character who appears in Disney 's The Lion King franchise. In the original film, the adult Nala is voiced by American actress Moira Kelly. Young Nala's speaking voice is provided by actress Niketa Calame, while singers Laura Williams and Sally Dworsky provide the singing voices of young and adult Nala respectively.
But as many pour into theaters to see this newest reboot, I became interested in taking a deeper look at the original film with my adult eyes — and, in doing so, came to realize a few things I never noticed as a kid. This, I presume, may be the reason the film almost did a pivot for its new adaptation. Can you feel that love tonight?
Simba is a character who appears in Disney's The Lion King franchise. Aquino animated the character as he appears as an adult. Although considered an original character, Simba was inspired by the character Bambi from Disney's Bambias well as the stories of Moses and Joseph from the Bible.
