CIRCLE OF LIFE

Scene 1
Scar: Life's not fair, is it? You see I -- well, I... shall never be King. Zazu: (Interrupting) Good morning Scar: (Light sigh.) What do you want? Zazu: I'm here to announce that King Mufasa is on his way. {bows} ...So you'd better have a good excuse for missing the ceremony this morning. He is really mad. Scar: Oooh... I tremble with FEAR . Mufasa: (entering) Scar! ... Scar: (Sarcastically overjoyed) Oh my god! Mufasa: Sarabi and I didn't see you at the presentation of Simba. Scar: (Faking astonishment) That was today? Oh, I feel simply awful. I forgot! Zazu: What? You forgot? As the king's brother, you should have been first in line! Scar: Well, I was first in line... until the little hairball was born. Mufasa: (Lowering his head and meeting Scar eye to eye) That "hairball" is my son... and your future king. Scar: Ohh, I shall practice my curtsy. (Scar turns away and starts to exit) Mufasa:(Warning) Don't turn your back on me , Scar. Scar: (Looking back) Oh, no, Mufasa. Perhaps YOU shouldn't turn YOUR back on me. Mufasa: Is that a challenge? Scar: Easy, easy. I wouldn't dream of challenging you. Zazu: Pity! Why not? Scar: Well, I’m intelligent, but when it comes to strength, I don’t have the lion’s share. (Exit Scar) Zazu: (Deep sigh) There's one in every family, sire... Two in mine, actually. And they always ruin special occasions.

Mufasa: What am I going to do with him? Zazu: He'd make a very handsome carpet. Mufasa: (Laughing) Zazu! (They exit, chuckling. Pan out into open savannah.)

Simba: Everything the light touches. (Simba looks all around.) What about that shadowy place? Mufasa: That's beyond our borders. You must never go there, Simba. Simba: But I thought a king can do whatever he wants. Mufasa: Oh, there's more to being king than... getting your way all the time. Simba: (Surprised) There's more? Mufasa: (Chuckles) Simba... Mufasa: Everything you see exists together, in a delicate balance. As king, you need to understand that balance, and respect all the creatures-- from the ant to the antelope. Simba: But, Dad, don't we eat the antelope?

Zazu: Checking in. Zazu. he said I can't go there. Simba: (Thinks) No problem. our bodies become the grass.. Hey Uncle Scar! Guess what! Scar: (Sarcastically) Oh goody.

Timon: Then maybe you need a new lesson.Timon: Pumbaa. Timon: You know. are you nuts? We're talking about a lion. (Simba starts waking up) You okay. right?
