Everything the light

touches is part of our kingdom.

The Pride Lands.

Ruling it is a big

responsibility, Kiara.

And someday,

when you're Queen...

Heads up! Incoming!


Oh! Sorry, Dad.

Me and Bunga were

playing Baobab Ball...

And Kion couldn't

handle the pass!

What? A giraffe

couldn't handle it.

You kicked it over my head!


And you couldn't handle it!


Yeah? Try to handle this!



Kion, I need to

talk to your sister.

She'll be tracking gazelles

with her friends today.

Because I'm training to be...

Queen of the Pride Lands.

Yeah, yeah.

I know all about it, Kiara.

Least I have

my life figured out.

What are you gonna grow

up to be, little brother?


All right you two,

that's enough.

Kion, why don't you and Bunga

go play somewhere else?

Yeah! I know

the perfect place!

Hey, Kion!

You'll never get

the baobab fruit, no.

Ha! You got nowhere

to go, Bunga!

Says you!

Zuka Zama!

Catch me if you can, Kion!

Game on, Bunga!

Later, Dad.

Have fun tracking those gazelle, Kiara.

I gotta get Bunga!

I can't believe we're related.

Kion will grow

up someday. I hope.

It's a good day to have

some fun to run and play

Whoa oh yeah oh

Sun's so hot, it melts

my worries all away

Whoa oh yeah oh

I'm gonna take it easy,

got no reason to work all day

Whoa oh yeah oh

keep on riding all the way

Whoa oh yeah oh

Everyone! Scatter!

up to the highest tree

Whoa oh yeah oh

Gotcha now, Bunga!

Not yet!

Cheka, cheka, cheka!

Stop it! Bunga!

Got it! Whoa...

Aww. It rolled

into the Outlands.

Game over.

Says who? I'm not afraid

of the Outlands.

Neither am I!

It's just... My dad!

He says we shouldn't...

Oh! Puh-leeze!

Simba's a big ol' scaredy cat

when it comes to the Outlands.

You know what my

Uncles always say!

Hakuna matata.

Whoa! Huh?


You look a little stuck.

You kidding?

It's just a tree branch.


Zuka Zama!

Now where did

that baobab fruit go?

Oh! 'Fraid there's no meat

left for you boys.

Janja, Janja!

A baobab fruit!

Let's eat it!

I'm starvelated!

What do you take

me for, a vegetarian?

I want something

nice and meaty for lunch!


Huh? Where'd it go...

What? What's so funny?

What are you laughing at?

Tell me!

Stuff it, fur brains! Look...

A honey badger.

Now that's my idea

of a delightful lunch!

Chungu! Cheezi!

Bring him to me!

Here we go!

Heyvi kabisa.

Bunga! Heads up!

Relax, Kion. Remember?



Get outta there, Bunga!

Okay, hyena. You wanna see what

this honey badger's made of?

I'll show you what I'm made of!

Hey! Lemme go so I can show that

other guy what I'm made of!


Put Bunga down!

Pick on somebody your own size!

Kion! You want

the honey badger?

Come and get him!

Let him go!

You hyenas don't want

any trouble with my dad.

Ooh. Like how

you'd get into trouble

if you came into the Outlands?

Uh, Kion?

He's too afraid

to come down here.

Yeah! 'Fraidy cat!

'Fraidy cat!

'Fraidy cat! 'Fraidy cat!
