Quote

Simba is the main protagonist of The Lion King. His uncle Scar convinces him that he was the reason his father died. He runs away and finds Timon and Pumbaa and grows up. His childhood friend Nala finds him and he eventually comes back to reclaim Pride Rock from his uncle.

Jason Raize plays Simba while Scott Irby-Ranniar plays young Simba in the original Broadway cast of The Lion King.
