The Lion King 2: Simba's Pride: Active Play is a PC game on November 1998.
Disney's The Lion King II: Simba's Pride Active Play encourages children to sing and play as they romp through the Pride Lands on a safari of fun, and join Kiara and Kovu for a whole jungle full of excitement. In addition to enjoying arts and crafts, sing-alongs, and puppet shows, kids will share plenty of laughs with friends Timon and Pumbaa. There are also masks and wacky animals to print and play with, and seven original songs.
Final Scene (Spoilers)
Once all animal type levels are completed, Timon makes sure that every animal that was the subject of every previous minigame (and the player) are all present and accounted for. Simba and Nala have two-part questions for the player on how certain animals act to prepare him or her for pride membership. For part one, Simba asks the player what animal either behaves in a certain way, has a certain body part with a certain description, or makes a certain sound. If the player clicks on the wrong animal, Simba may suggest clicking on another one. Once the correct answer is picked and Simba commends the player for it, Nala gives him or her part two: to pretend to be that animal in a way that is relevant to part one (For example, if Simba asks the player which animal has a long tongue, and the giraffe is correctly selected, Nala then asks the player if he or she can stick out his or her tongue, and then once the player does well, she tells him or her that a real giraffe couldn't do any better). Sometimes, for part one, whenever the player clicks on Timon, Pumbaa, Kiara, or Kovu, they usually cheer him or her on, or the cubs may express having "butterflies in [their stomachs]." As soon as all the animals are correctly picked, Simba welcomes the player to the pride, and he and Nala provide a "Welcome to the Pride" sing-along. As soon as this has happened, the player can click on any of the characters for reactions. For example, Kiara may lick the player, or Kovu may tell him or her to "give me some paw" and extend his paw for it.
- As is usual for certain video games, Cam Clarke does his own speaking voice for Simba (in the movie, he only did the singing voice in place of Matthew Broderick). This game, on the other hand, is the reverse, as Clarke does not do his own singing for "Welcome to the Pride." Instead, his singing predecessor, Joseph Williams, does it.
- Coincidentally, Cam Clarke and Ryan O'Donohue (who reprises his Kovu role) both voice-acted in the original movie's Animated Storybook, only with O'Donohue voicing Young Simba there.
- Also, contrary to the movie version, Simba does not appear to have problems with Kovu being in his presence.
- Even if the answer to Simba's part-one question is a lion, clicking on him or Nala will have him ask the player the question again.
- Although Kiara and Kovu speak to the player in the pre-game intro, they do not introduce themselves until whichever animal level is selected first.
