I've been a Lion King fan for a long time now! And yeah, I like it a lot.
I think the cub at the end of the Lion King is Kopa. And the one at the beginning of Simba's Pride is Kiara. They're different! See the pictures below, the one on the left is Kopa and the one on the right is Kiara. Kopa has dark stripes on his ears! Kiara doesn't! So they are different! I just wanted to say that. :P
Okay, thanks for visiting!
