The Lion King Is Based on Hamlet

In 1994, Disney decided to make its own version of The Tragedy of Hamlet, Prince of Denmark — but this time Hamlet would be a lion cub. Shakespeare's Hamlet follows a young prince who sets out to get revenge on his uncle, Claudius, who murdered the prince's father and married his mother.
