Probably one of the most epic animated movies made by Disney, The Lion King was released in 1994 and was the first Disney animated feature to be an original story.

The movie tells the story of Simba, a lion cub who is to succeed his father, Mufasa, as King of the Pride Lands. After the killing of his father by his paternal uncle, the young lion has to undergo a lot of challenges in the search for his destiny as king and in understanding the ’Great Circle of Life’, which connects all living things.

The best thing about animated movies is that you can enjoy them no matter how old you are. The difference is that, as a child, you love the story and that fantasy world as it is presented; When you get older, you begin to understand that the fantasy world is a reflection of the one you live in.

Above all, The Lion King teaches us that we can overcome any challenge life throws our way, if we don’t let worries overwhelm us. Another valuable lesson offered by the movie, is that power can be blinding.

With this being said, we can’t wait for the CGI remake scheduled for a release in July 2019!

From such an innocent looking film, here are 22 The Lion King quotes filled with powerful life lessons.

Believe in yourself and there will come a day when others will have no choice but to believe with you.

Mufasa

Look beyond what you see.

Rafiki

It’s times like this my buddy Timon here says: you got to put your behind in your past.

Pumba

There’s more to being a king than getting your way all the time.

Mufasa

Oh yes, the past can hurt. But from the way I see it, you can either run from it, or learn from it.

Rafiki

I laugh in the face of danger.

Simba

When we die, our bodies become the grass, and the antelope eat the grass. And so, we are all connected in the great Circle of Life…

Mufasa

Truth? But, truth is in the eye of the beholder.

Scar

Remember who you are.

Mufasa

They can have the word. We’ll create our own.

Kiara

I’m only brave when I have to be. Being brave doesn’t mean you go looking for trouble.

Mufasa

Out of the ashes of this tragedy, we shall rise to greet the dawning of a new era.

Scar

If you will not fight, then you will die as well.

Simba

Change is good.

Everything you see exists together in a delicate balance. As king, you need to understand that balance and respect all the creatures, from the crawling ant to the leaping antelope.

Mufasa

Sometimes what’s left behind can grow better than the generation before.

Simba

Any story worth telling is worth telling twice.

Rafiki

Look, sometimes bad things happen — and there’s nothing you can do about it. So why worry?

Nobody knows the trouble I’ve seen…Nobody knows my sorrow.
