Are you among those (like me, I admit!) Who has never thought that this cartoon is nothing more than a very free adaptation of Shakespeare’s Hamlet?
The jealous brother kills the king then the king’s son discovers him and seeks revenge. Rosencrantz and Guildenstern – I meant Timon and Pumba – distract him from his purpose.
But in the end, the boy manages to kill the bad uncle. Difference? In Shakespeare’s tragedy everyone dies, not just the evil one.
The beauty of the happy endings of Disney’s movies.
