her outside. Nala saw
Kiara sitting on the edge.)
NALA : Morning Kiara.
(Kiara, noticing her mother behind her, turn around)
: Oh, good morning mother.
(Kiara, turned back to her original position letting out great big sigh)
NALA : Kiara,
what's the matter? Is it about yesterday.
KIARA : I really don't want to talk about it.
NALA : Come on, tell me
what is wrong.
KIARA : (turning back to Nala) Alright, you are right it is about yesterday,
when I tried to save Zira's life she totally refused....
NALA : (interrupting) But that is how she was, evil and self relying,
wouldn't accept any help from anybody.
KIARA : Listen, there was more to it than
NALA : (Confused) What to you mean?
KIARA : She didn't slip as everyone thought.
NALA : (Surprised) WHAT
KIARA : I saw everything, after she refused she started smiling at me.
While she was smiling at me, she released her grip and fell into the

was a bit
KIARA : It's not that, I think that she survived that terrible fall into the
NALA : Kiara....
KIARA : I know it sounds ridiculous mother, but I just have a feeling deep in
my bones that she is still alive.
NALA : If your suspicion is correct, then we're not out of danger yet.
KIARA : But
mother if she survived the river, she won't survive out there
: Believe me she is not alone.
KIARA : What do you mean mother?
NALA : Not now, I will tell you the story when Simba
and Kovu is awake,
because they need to hear it as well.
[FADE TO BLACK]
II : CONFIRMED SUSPICIONS]
[FADE IN, DOWN RIVER]
(Zira lies on the bank of the river. She slowly awakens.
All Zira can
remember of the fall was being dragged under by the strong currents of the
river and she also remembers
that she limped out onto the bank of the river.
She figured she must have passed out, probably from all the struggling
get to shore. Then she suddenly remembered every detail of the battle,
upon remembering her defeat she also
remembered the betrayal of her whole
pride and most terrible fact, the betrayal of her own daughter for which she
cared for, for so many years. She finally got the strength to get up and
she started to limp towards the east.)
: (Talking to herself) It's not over yet Simba, not by far. Zira is
till I see your bloody corpse breaths out its last breath.
But know this, my vengeance
is now greater than ever, now that you
stole away my daughter from me.
[SCENE III : TIMON & PUMBAA DECIDES]

(Timon and Pumbaa sits on top
of Pride Rock)
PUMBAA : Timon, I miss our old home. Can somebody get homesick ?
TIMON : Too late.
looks at Timon holding his stomach)
PUMBAA : Are you okay ?
TIMON : (sarcastically) Yes, I feel like I'm on top
of the world.
PUMBAA : I thought you were on top of Pride Rock.
TIMON : You idiot, of course I'm not okay. I got
terrible stomach ache.
(Pumbaa thinks a bit. Then he picks up Timon like a baby over his shoulder
TIMON : BURP!!!! Aaah, much better. Just gas.
PUMBAA : Sorry.
TIMON : Not you.
: Are you going to answer my question ?
TIMON : Okay let me think. Ummm-lets see now-hmmm, what was the question ?
: Can someone get home sick ?
TIMON : Sick of this home, you got to be kidding.
PUMBAA : No-no, I mean can you miss
your old home so much that you feel sick.
TIMON : I guess so. You wanna go home ?
PUMBAA : (sadly) Yep!
: Okay, lets go. But let's tell Simba first.
PUMBAA : Why ?
TIMON : Do you want his search parties to find us
in our old home ?
PUMBAA : I didn't know you can party while looking for someone.
TIMON : Whoa! Dumber than advertised.
TIMON : Nothing, nothing. Let's find Simba.

[SCENE IV: THE STORY OF KISASIAN]
IN, THE PRIDELANDS. CAMERA ZOOMS IN TO SPOT BEHIND PRIDE
ROCK WHERE NALA GATHERED SIMBA, KOVU AND KIARA.]
Kovu, Nala and Kiara sat in the shade of a tree to stay out of the
still heating sun. They sat in silence.
Then finally after a few minutes
Simba decided to break the silence.)
SIMBA : Okay Nala what is this all about?
: We're just waiting for Vitani, this involves her to.
(Vitani finally appeared and joined the group in the cool shade
of the tree.)
NALA : Now that everybody is here I can begin, but before I start (Looking
at Kiara) Kiara wants tell everybody about what really happened on
KIARA : (Pleading) Please mother, not again. It hurts to much to talk about
NALA : (voice of concern) Kiara you have to, or nobody will understand the
story that I'm about to tell.
KIARA : Okay! When I tried to save Zira yesterday (Kiara starts stuttering
as if she is breaking up inside) sh-sh-sh-she didn't slip.....
(Everybody gasped with the breaking of this news.
Everybody looks at her and
almost simultaneously say "WHAT!?")
KIARA : (continuing) ....you heard me. (Almost
on the verge of crying out
loud) I-I-I-I tried to help her, b-b-b-b-but she
refused and then she
released her grip on the stone she was holding on to. A-a-a-a-as
fell she smiled at me and disappeared under the currents.
breaks into a silent cry. Kovu moved over to Kiara and calmed her
down a bit)
KOVU : (to Kiara) Don't worry
it is all over now. (To Nala) This is all very
informative but what is the point
you are trying to make here?
NALA : Well Kiara told me that she suspects that Zira survived.
KOVU : (to Nala) That can't
SIMBA : I agree, nobody can survive such a fall.
NALA : But just think about it, she wouldn't have let go if
she didn't think
she could survive those terrible currents.
SIMBA : Okay fine,
let say she survived what can she do? She has no pride
behind her anymore.
: And If she survived, where can she go? I think if she did survive
she would last
VITANI : Don't forget Kovu, mother was a great fighter. She can get the
strength to do almost everything. I myself think that mother could
NALA : Let me answer the question about where can she go. (To Vitani)
Vitani, do you remember somebody named Kisasian?
VITANI : Sounds familiar, let me see (thinking a bit) Kisasian, Kisasian.
Hmmm, I just can't remember properly.
NALA : (To Vitani and Kovu)
He was your brother.
VITANI : Excuse me!
KOVU : Can you run that by me again.
NALA : Yes, your brother Kovu.
: Your kidding right (voice of concern) right?
NALA : I'm not kidding, he was the son of Scar the same as Nuka.
: Okay, tell us about this Kisasian and how do you know him.
NALA : This happened while Scar ruled the Pridelands.
was born Kisasian followed only a few seconds after. Kisasian
had a good heart and was the only one of Scar's followers who
saw how evil Scar was,
so when he was old enough he decided to
run away to the far east to start his own
you all know about Kisasian.
VITANI : Now I remember him. I
remember that he was my favorite of the two
and he was very wise.
But I never knew he ran away to the east.
Scar told me that he
was killed by some stampeding elephants.
NALA : But there is more. If Kisasian survived the long journey to the east,
he will have grown into a powerful ruler and have a pride of his own.
SIMBA : So what you are saying, if Zira survived
and if Kisasian is still
KOVU : (interrupting)....She will try
to get to Kisasian and fill his heart
with evil, as she did with me.
NALA : Exactly.
(To Simba) Simba, there is also something else you should
SIMBA : What?
: When the hyenas fled the elephant graveyard, I heard a rumor that
they fled to the
east hoping to begin a new life there.
SIMBA : Okay, I heard enough. What are the chances of that ever happening?
(There was a short silence) I say there is not a good chance of
this ever happening.
: (To Simba) Your right, but if this ever happened I want everybody
to be prepared.
(To Vitani) Vitani, could you finish Kiara's training
to hunt. We all know she's
not well trained yet.
(Kiara hides her face behind her paw in embarrassment)
SIMBA : (To Kiara) Don't be embarrassed
about it Kiara. (Looking at Nala)
When your mother was young, she also wasn't
a very good hunter. Or
so I heard from my mother.
NALA : (Smiling with guilt)
SIMBA : (apologizing) Sorry.
NALA : Anyway, can you also help her with her fighting skills? (Vitani nods
and Nala continues) Do you want to know where she got her fighting skills
: Nala don't you dare!
NALA : Okay, okay just kidding.(To Simba) And can you please talk to Kovu
about how to become a good and wise king.
SIMBA : Of course, I was planning to do it today.
KOVU : Come on, what more
do I need to know.
KIARA : Believe me Kovu, you don't know anything until you talked with my
KOVU : Okay, okay.
(Simba and Kovu got up and went to the very top of Pride Rock. Kiara and
went off into the fields of the Pridelands to continue Kiara's
training. Nala went back to the den where Timon and Pumbaa
TIMON : Where is Simba?
NALA : He went for a walk with Kovu.
TIMON : Well then Pumbaa and I better
catch him to say goodbye.
NALA : (Confused) Goodbye?
PUMBAA : Yes we decided that we want to go back to our old home.
: (admitting) It is not that we hate the Pridelands, we love it, but
missing our home and wish to go back.
NALA : Okay, but before you go I want to thank you for all your help.
embraced and Timon and Pumbaa went in search of Simba to say

[SCENE V : KISASIAN'S
[FADE IN TO A BEAUTIFUL LAND FAR AWAY FROM THE PRIDELANDS.
ZOOM INTO THE DEN OF THE STRANGE PRIDE. A NUMBER
LIONESSES ARE LYING AROUND SLEEPING.]
(A lion walks into the den and sits next to a lioness.)
[To lioness] (Voice of great excitement) Lobomi, are you awake?
LOBOMI : (Still half asleep) Kisasian, is that you?
LOBOMI : Where have you been this past week?
KISASIAN : Getting some information about the hyenas that murdered
LOBOMI : Wait a minute, you told me that you didn't even liked your father.
KISISIAN : Just because I didn't
like father, doesn't mean that I don't care that some hyenas killed him in betrayal.
LOBOMI : Okay, fine. What did
you find out about them?
KISISIAN : I found out that they are living not so far from here. Finally
I can have the revenge I dreamed of for so many years.
LOBOMI : Should I assembly the rest of the lionesses for the attack.
: Yes, hurry! My plan for revenge will be completed before the end
of the day.
laughs like a maniac as he walks out of the den. Lobomi wakes the
other lionesses and start telling them about
the plans to attack the hyenas.
Many of them protested and said that the hyena number is twice the size of
pride, but Lobomi guaranteed them the victory even they were out
numbered. After a while all the lionesses were
gathered and was ready and
full of confidence for the battle that lies ahead. The pride journeyed
through a large
canyon and past the great river of Kube. Kisasian went on
ahead and he slowed down as he saw a hyena on a hill.
When the hyena walked
away he climbed the hill slowly as he reached the top, with lionesses behind
him, he looked
over the top and saw a whole assembly of the hyenas sitting
around doing nothing. Kisasian hears some voices and
[CAMERA ZOOMS INTO MEETING. THREE HYENAS SIT ON TOP OF A
HYENA 1: (female voice)
Listen to me my fellow hyenas, we have led you from
the dreaded elephant
graveyard to this beautiful land in the east,
which I am now proud to
call our home.
HYENA 2: (male voice) Now here is what we think. Since we led you to here,
our wish is that Shenzi, myself and Ed take over the group and reign
SHENZI : Banzai is right, I think we deserve this prize for leading you to
these lands where the river Kube flows. That means that there will
be plenty to drink as well as a lot of food.
RANDOM HYENAS : Hear, Hear. We will support you all the way!
BANZAI : Great!
Three cheers for us your new leaders, as well as to brand
new home with
no lions to bother us ever again.
[CAMERA COMES BACK TO KISASIAN]
(Kisasian's heart filled with anger as he
heard this news. He couldn't take
it anymore and decided that the time to attack is now.)
KISASIAN : ATTACK!!!!
hyenas only heard the word "attack" then a row of lions suddenly
attacked them from over the hill. The hyenas scattered.
The lions attacked
the hyenas left and right. After an hour most of the hyenas were killed.
and two backup lionesses went after the last ten of the hyenas.
They finally cornered them somewhere in the gorge,
but the lions could not
reach them because the hyenas were on high ledges. After a few minutes.

SHENZI : (Out of breath) Who are you and why are you doing this to us?
KISASIAN : (Firm tone)
I am Kisasian, son of Scar and you hyenas murdered
: (recognizing the lion) Kisasian?
KISASIAN : That's right.
BANZAI : Don't you remember us?
KISASIAN : No, should
BANZAI : It's us, Banzai, (pointing to Shenzi) Shenzi and (pointing to Ed)
KISASIAN : I can't believe it, your still alive?
SHENZI : In the flesh, or so to speak after that attack.
: I have to avenge Scar's death, that means I have to (Shouting)
destroy you all!
BANZAI : You don't have to.
KISASIAN : And WHY not?
SHENZI : We can be your eternal slaves, although
there is only ten left of
KISASIAN : Okay, why not. You
were my friends while I was young, and I guess
I can spare
your lives for that.
(They hyenas let out a great sigh of relief)
KISASIAN : (serious tone) But if you dare
to betray me, like you betrayed my
father, I can guarantee
you all a very slow and painful death!!!!!

VI : KIARA'S TRAINING]
[FADE IN, VITANI AND KIARA ARE SITTING IN THE PRIDELANDS

is busy teaching Kiara all about hunting and fighting)
VITANI : Now Kiara listen to me, Kovu told me that he taught
you a bit about
sneaking up on the prey. Tell me what he told you.
: Well he told me that I must feel the earth under my paws so that
doesn't shift when I move, he also added that I still
breath to much.
What does he mean by that?
VITANI : Well he means, that when you get closer to the prey you get to
excited and then you start breathing much louder. Once you learned
to control your breathing you will be able to sneak up on prey much
quicker and much, much more silently. Now try it and
see. I will go
over that hill and wait for you to pounce me.
Then we will see how
good you really are.
(Vitani went over the
hill and waited for Kiara to come. Kiara slowly and
silently crawl around hill using all the techniques which she
She got as close to Vitani as possible. She jumped with a 'hup' in the
process, but Vitani
moved out of the way.)
VITANI : (Rather impressed) That was very close. Your breathing is much
better now, but still needs some work. You are very silent but,
when you are ready to pounce don't make that 'hup' noise then the
will not know that your are there. Now try again.
(Vitani went back to the spot where they started the lesson.
to stalk Vitani again, but this time she went over the hill. Once again she
was close enough
for a proper pounce. She pounce Vitani with perfection.)
VITANI : (Very proudly) That was excellent! I
didn't hear you at all. Kovu
and your mother will be pleased once
they hear about this.
KIARA : Was I really that good?
VITANI : Of course, okay on with the lesson! Next, once
you pounced your
prey you must know how to bring it to the ground. This doesn't need
any practice, but you must know how to do it. Once you jumped onto
prey there are two fatal parts to go for. One is the throat and
the other is the snout all you have to do is squeeze real hard with
jaws and the prey quickly start to suffocate.
KIARA : Go for throat or snout, Got it!
VITANI : Good! Now to teach
you to fight. Try to pin me.
(Kiara leapt on to Vitani and tried her best to pin her but she failed
as Vitani quickly and swiftly pin her instead.)
VITANI : (Getting off Kiara) No offence, but that was pathetic.
: Non taken, I know I'm not to good, tell me what I did wrong.
VITANI : Well first, you are trying to hard to get the opponent
Therefore you are tiring yourself out much quicker.
Remember it is
not about strength but it is about thinking.
: What do you mean ?
VITANI : If you can outwit your opponent, the chances of winning the fight is
much better than it is when you are trying to use brute strength.
KIARA : So what your saying is, if you not going to think
of a strategy to
attack your opponent....
VITANI : (interrupting)....You are as good as dead.
: I see.
VITANI : Good! Now here's a trick you must know to get advantage in a fight.
When your opponent jumps on you and tries to pin you directly, then
use your hind legs to push and throw them over your head. But
when you do this insert
your claws into your opponent and you will
automatically land on top of them. Now
lets practice a bit.
(After about an hour of practice both Vitani and Kiara was bushed)
VITANI : That
was great practice, don't you think?
KIARA : Yes, that was a lot of fun?
VITANI : (lowering her head in shame) Kiara,
I feel a bit embarrassed to ask
this of you. Can you show me how
to have fun? Kovu told me about it
and feel so bad that I never knew what
fun was, because my mother
KIARA : Don't worry about it.
Come with me and I will show you to how to
VITANI : Thanks.
(Kiara and Vitani
ran into the fields. Kiara showed Vitani everything about how to have

SIMBA : Kovu, I will tell you everything that my father
told me when I
was a cub. Just look out over the Pridelands, isn't is
KOVU : Yes it is. Much better than the Outlands.
SIMBA : I agree totally. Everything the light
touches in the Pridelands is
our Kingdom. Now walk with me through the Pridelands and I'll share
you the importance of being a king.
KOVU : Simba, before we go can I ask you a question
SIMBA : Fire away.
KOVU : Why did you banish my mother's pride out of the Pridelands ?
SIMBA : They just didn't
belong here, because when your mother learned that
Scar was killed, it almost
destroyed her and she blamed me for his
KOVU : (confused) You mean you didn't kill
SIMBA : Of course not, I first tried reason with him, but then he suddenly
me. I threw him off of Pride Rock's edge, but he survived.
Then the hyenas came and attacked
him, because he betrayed them.
KOVU : I never knew just how he died, my mother kept telling me about how you
brutally slaughtered him.
SIMBA : No, I can never do something like that. I tried to save him by
telling him to run away, because I knew if I didn't kill him the rest
of my pride would have definitely
killed him. And so when he died,
Zira tried to take over the Pridelands and in the attempt
my mother. Therefore I banished her and her followers from the
Pridelands and promised a penalty of death if she dared to return.
and Simba made their way down Pride Rock. At the bottom Timon and
Pumbaa stop them.)
SIMBA : Hey Timon,
Pumbaa. How can I help you?
TIMON : Listen Simba, we came to say goodbye.
SIMBA : (confused) Goodbye ? Where are
PUMBAA : Where going back home.
SIMBA : But I thought that Pride Rock is your home now.
TIMON : It was
a great home and we will hate leaving it behind, but....
(Timon burst into tears)
PUMBAA : (continuing) ....we
miss our old home. But if you ever need us
just call us and we will
(Pumbaa starts to cry with Timon. When they finally finished Simba spoke
Well if it's going to be like that, I bid you a farewell and have a
Timon and Pumbaa hugged and Simba shed a single tear down his right
SIMBA : (To Timon & Pumbaa) Just
before you go....(calling) ZAZU!!
(Zazu comes flying from a tree)
ZAZU : Yes, sire.
SIMBA : Follow Timon
and Pumbaa home, just for in case we need them here
ZAZU : Right away, Sire.
all said their final farewells and then Timon and Pumbaa left with Zazu.
Simba and Kovu continued their walk)
: When get friends like that you must treasure them forever, because
everything that you see
and every friend you make all exist in a
delicate balance and as king you should understand that
This balance I'm talking about is called the great "Circle Of Life".
So once I understand the quality of life I will be a better king.
SIMBA : Exactly. Your learning fast.

they went to sit in the grass and

KOVU : Kiara told that you said that all the kings of the
past are up in the
stars, is this true?
SIMBA : Of course it is. When ever
you feel lonely and don't know what to do
all you have to do is call and seek

SIMBA : Believe me, I will always be there to help you. Just call me
KOVU : I asked Kiara this question, but she was not able to answer me.
you can answer this question.
SIMBA : Ask away.
KOVU : Do you think
Scar is up there?
SIMBA : Well he was a king, I suppose his up there. Still, he will be evil,
just because he is up there doesn't mean that it changed his life. He
was evil through

(Simba is now thinking very deep)
: (noticing) What are you thinking about Simba?
SIMBA : Well I was thinking since you don't know who your father is, and
I know I will never have a son....I wish to adopt you as my own son,
as my daughter. What do think about that?
KOVU : I think it will be the best thing that ever happened to me and her,
and I accept with honor....DAD.

showing me a good time today.
KIARA : No problem. Vitani I want to ask you a personal question.
VITANI : Okay,
what's the question ?
KIARA : Do you want to become a mother ?
VITANI : I don't think so?
KIARA : Why not?
My mother tells me it is the greatest joy in life when you
give life to a cub.
VITANI : I
can imagine, but the reason why I don't want to become a mother
is because (she starts
to stutter) because....
KIARA : Relax and tell me the problem.

after yesterday. And also bring something for our guests.

will bring you your breakfast soon.

lionesses return. But as he enters the den he sees a strange lioness and
starts to roar at her. But she didn't

joy) Mother! I can't

You don't have to kill Simba. He has come of age and will

ask your forgiveness for me being so rude to you.
KIARA : No, it was all my fault. Please don't apologize.

SHENZI : (Whispering) I don't know, why don't you ask her?
Okay. (Shouting) Hey Vitani!

looks around wondering where the voice came. She started to shake a bit of
SHENZI : (Whispering)
BANZAI : (Whispering) You didn't have to hit me so hard....Anyway I think
that is her.
SHENZI : (Whispering) Good! Let's get her.
(Suddenly out of nowhere all the hyenas attacked Vitani
brutally. She tried
to fight them off but got a fatal neck wound.)
BANZAI : Wait! Hold on she is injured

Let her suffer.

PUMBAA : Breakfast.
TIMON : (To himself) I don't know why I bother. (To Pumbaa)
Let's see what

(Timon and Pumbaa crept a bit closer, straining to listen
to every word.)
ZIRA : Is it done?
BANZAI : Yes, we did as you told us. Left her for dead.
ZIRA : Good,
part one of my plan is completed. Time for part two. Kisasian

KIARA : I think

SIMBA : I'll go get him.
[FADE IN, WATERHOLE]
(Kovu is busy drinking
from the waterhole. Not noticing Kisasian behind a
rock. Kisasian couldn't see who was drinking at the waterhole,

jumped in front of him.)
: (Yelling) It's Kisasian, go and warn the Pride that there's going to
KOVU : Right Away! What about you Simba ?
SIMBA : Don't worry, GO!
(Kovu ran off)
KISASIAN : Simba,
I respect your courage for trying to save one of your
lions, but I will not
attack you. It wouldn't be fair, your old
and I'm young, so move it.
: Not a chance, if you want through you must go through me.
KISASIAN : So be it.
(Kisasian attacked Simba.
Kisasian knocked Simba off his feet and Simba
knocked his head against a rock. Simba was knocked out cold.)
: I'm sorry Simba, but you forced me to do it.
(Kisasian ran to Pride Rock, he came to entrance of the cave and Kovu
out. Kovu roared at him.)
KOVU : Who are you? And why are you intruding on Simba's lands?
KISASIAN : I
am Kisasian son of Zira, and I must kill the one named Kovu.
KOVU : Why?
KISASIAN : He betrayed my mother.
Where is Simba ?
KISASIAN : Don't worry about him. (Making sure) By the way who are you to ask
so many questions?
KOVU : I am Kovu adopted son of Simba, son of Zira.
KISASIAN : That's impossible, mother told me
that you and that other traitor
Vitani betrayed her in battle. And there can't
be any traitors in
KOVU : It's true, you are my brother.
: If it is, then I can't kill you, I refuse to kill a family member.
It's against my laws.
KOVU : Then why did you kill Vitani ?
KISASIAN : I didn't, my hyenas did and she was not family,
concerned) was she?.
KOVU : Yes, she was. She was your sister.
: No it can't be true. You're lying.
(Zira appeared with the rest of the pride)
KOVU : Don't believe me
? (Pointing at Zira) Then ask your mother.
KISASIAN : (To Zira) Mother is this true?
(Zira only grinned)
: (shouting) MOTHER WHAT DID YOU MAKE ME DO! (Heartbroken) I
won't be responsible for the death of a family member !
ZIRA : Oh, but you are my dear Kisasian.
KISASIAN : I can't

ZIRA : Believe it.
KISASIAN : And now you've corrupted my pride too.
ZIRA : But of
KISASIAN : (yelling) I can't take this anymore !
(Kisasian started to go mad. He ran with tears in
his eyes and jumped off
Pride Rock committing suicide.)
ZIRA : (yelling) ATTACK!
(The two lion prides collided
and the battle was on. After many hours Simba's
pride won the battle, but there was still two lionesses right on top of
Pride Rock. It was Kiara and Zira.)
ZIRA : Now lets see how good you are Kiara.
KIARA : You will pay
for Vitani's death

I'm going to step
