There are two royal “brothers” one betrays the other.
Simba/Moses literally gets washed down a river.
A man in the sky appears and tells him what to do.
He returns to liberate his people from a cruel king.
The land is plagued.
It doesn’t neccisarily ceanly map to either. Simba spends most of the movie away. Nala does not commit suicide. It is not court intrigue that reveals the crime. Claudius does not hang out with Whoopi Goldberg. And Simba does not accidentally murder anyone.
A lot of core Hamlet shit isn’t there. Plenty of core Moses stuff isn’t either. But there are big reference points for both. Structurally to doesn’t match either very well.
Cause it’s not an adaptation.
