Canon History

The Lion Guard

"Can't Wait to be Queen"

When the leader of the herd, Aminifu passes away, the King and Queen of the Pride Pride Lands, along with their majordomo, travel to Kilio Valley in order to conduct a tribute to honor the elephant. Just before leaving, Simba worries over setting his daughter, Kiara, in charge of the Pride Lands, but Nala gently reminds him that he's really worried about giving a speech in elephantese. Zazu adds that it's a very important tradition to the elephants.

Eventually, the three reach Kilio Valley, where they see Ma Tembo's herd paying tribute to their old leader by placing flowers on his body. Simba strides down the ridge, and the ceremony begins, with Ma Tembo, Aminifu's daughter, announcing the king as a special guest.

With the herd watching rapturously, Simba recounts his long friendship with Aminifu and how he will remember the old elephant fondly. However, when Simba tries to give the standard elephantese tribute of "He had good on him," he accidentally says, "He had poop on him." Despite the king's horror at such a mistake, the herd laughs, and Ma Tembo explains that Aminifu always used to have excrement on him, which had incited much laughter from the herd. She then thanks the king for his kind words.

"Bunga and the King"

When the elephants hold their first concert of the season, Simba and his family resolve to be in attendance. However, along the way, Simba gets trapped in a sinkhole, and Kiara and Nala are forced to go on without him. They witness the concert and praise the elephants after their song, but just then, Simba arrives with the Lion Guard, Pumbaa, and Timon. Once there, he apologizes to Ma Tembo for being late, and they all perform "Hakuna Matata" together.
