So, Scar orchestrates Mufasa's tragic demise then makes Simba believe he is to blame. The young lion is overwhelmed by guilt and flees his homelands, ending up in the jungle where he befriends Timon and Pumbaa. Years later, the now full-grown Simba is persuaded to return to Lion's Rock to overthrow the despotic Scar, and save the pride from extinction.
