Another GameBoy Advance video game based on the direct-to-video prequel/midquel, The Lion King 1½, was released in 2003.[3] Timon and Pumbaa are playable characters, though Simba is not playable at all, though his childhood character has a moving sprite.

Kingdom Hearts II

Part of the main plot of The Lion King is retold in the 2005 Square Enix PlayStation 2 game Kingdom Hearts II. The characters of the film appear in "The Pride Lands", one of the many Disney "worlds" in the game. The plot is altered and new dialogue was recorded to accommodate the presence of the three main protagonists (Sora, Donald Duck and Goofy). Simba also appears as a Summon and Summon Card in Kingdom Hearts and Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories, respectively.


  • The Lion King for GameBoy Advance is one of the few where Simba is even playable. Instead, he plays a very small role and only a supporting character.
