King of the Beasts – The Lion King early draft screenplays - post author Don

Thanks to Jimminy for the heads up on these two early drafts of The Lion King

The Lion King – May 23, 1990 draft script by J. T. Allen & Ronald Bass and The Lion King – January 19, 1990 draft script by J. T. Allen – hosted by: Lion King Original Screenplay – in pdf format

A young lion prince is born in Africa, thus making his uncle Scar the second in line to the throne. Scar plots with the hyenas to kill King Mufasa and Prince Simba, thus making himself King. The King is killed and Simba is led to believe by Scar that it was his fault, and so flees the kingdom in shame. After years of exile he is persuaded to return home to overthrow the usurper and claim the kingdom as his own thus completing the “Circle of Life”.
