Pride Rock

Pride Rock is a large rock located in the vast Pride Lands, made famous by The Lion King franchise. It is the home to Simba, the protagonist of the original film and his pride. It was first seen in "MCF and the Lion King" when the girls and their friends are sucked into the movie.

Appearances Edit

In The Lion King franchise Edit

Pride Rock is the home of the Lion King and his lionesses, and functions as his throne. The pride makes their den in a cavern in one part of the formation. It is shown to be so tall, that one can see the entire Pride Lands from its peak, and vice versa. The formation can be seen from any part of the Pride Lands. Because of this, the area serves as a gathering place for many events.

At the start of the The Lion King, animals from miles away gather around Pride Rock to witness Mufasa and Sarabi's newborn cub Simba being presented in front of them by Rafiki, with Rakifi standing on the formation's peak.

One other tradition that seems to persist is that when a new ruler takes the throne, he climbs to the top of Pride Rock, and lets out a roar across the kingdom. Animal herds are also known to gather at other times. At the conclusion of the first film, animals gather around Pride Rock again to witness the presentation of Simba and Nala's newborn cub.

In The Lion King II: Simba's Pride, animals gather first to witness Kiara'spresentation, then to witness Kovu's banishment, and ultimately to witness Kiara's marriage to Kovu.

The area surrounding Pride Rock is usually a lush savanna. however, during Scar's reign a severe drought hits the area, the water dries up, and plant life dies, which leads the animals herds to leave.

In other media Edit

Pride Rock makes an appearance as a prop in the House of Mouse episodes "Donald's Lamp Trade" and "Where's Minnie?"

It is also a region for the Pride Lands level of Kingdom Hearts II, which Sora,Donald and Goofy travel to. During this level, the party takes the form of African animals, with Sora as a lion cub, Goofy as a tortoise, and Donald as a hornbill. The only scene which is different from the movie is Rafiki telling Sora he doesn't have the qualities to be king before being chased away by the hyenas. They return to Pride Rock to help Simba defeat the ghost of Scar and help Simba realize he can be a good king. Pride Rock is also present in the musical version of The Lion King. It appears as a circular staircase, so it can ascend and descend for certain scenes.

Pride Rock makes a cameo in the Phineas and Ferb episode "Tri-Stone Area."

Pride Rock makes a cameo at the end of George of the Jungle, mimicking Simba's representation scene from the beginning of The Lion King. The Pride Rock looked realistic, done using CGI.

MCF Stories Edit

It makes an appearence in "MCF and the Lion King". In the story, it appeares whe the girls, Mordecai, Rigby and Wander get sucked into the movie of "The Lion King." where the group stays for a bit until Mufasa's death, then it reappears when they, SImba, Nala, Timon and Pumbaa return to it.

It appears again when they go into The Lion King II movie by being sucked in again by Rigby, only this time Sylvia and Bartok join them while Mordecai and Rigby stay outside to watch the events.

IT then appears for real when the MCF and Sunset Shimmer go to visit Simba and Nala.
