The Little Lion King 3D

Even Disney themselves hate the blood and more cruelty of this illegal low-budget rip-off film.

The Little Lion King is a 2013 Chinese 14-minute low-budget CGI animated short film created by Behind The Scenes Media in Singapore.


A little lion named Sinbad tries to find a way to get to the zoo to see his mother, but he must get help from an elephant named Uncle Elephant and a gazelle named Kelly while avoiding a duo of mean hyenas.

Why It's Too Much For Kids

  1. The movie is a ripoff of The Lion King in a number of ways:
    • The title was obviously made only to cash in on said film.
    • The protagonist's name, Sinbad, sounds similar to Simba's name.
  2. The movie's plot is nonsensical.
  3. Sinbad goes on a quest to find his mother at the zoo at first, but later doesn't care at the middle.
  4. The animation is terrible and cheap, as it looks like some graphics from an old PlayStation/Nintendo 64 video game.
  5. The characters are bland and also poorly-modeled, especially Sinbad, who looks too similar to Simba from The Lion King.
  6. Bad voice acting with poor lip-syncing to go with it.
  7. Laughable dialogue.
  8. Sequel baiting: The ending is completely unnecessary, confusing, and a huge cliffhanger, as it shows Sinbad's mother being locked in a cage and cries because of the loss of her son and then gets shot by a tranquillizer dart.
  9. Sometimes, it can get dark and evil-spirited. Blood can be clearly seen (in a kids' movie) in the film's climax.
  10. It is inaccurate regarding animal's anatomy; Kelly has a large and disturbing udder while a real gazelles' udder is way smaller in comparison.
  11. There is lots of padding to increase the movie's running time, like a whole entire scene of the hyena duo chasing Kelly in the climax, which lasts for 30 seconds.
  12. Generic soundtrack that does not fit in the film.
  13. Misleading title: Despite the name, Sinbad doesn't actually grow up nor become a king.
  14. The hyenas are given roars, even though they don't roar in real life.
  15. The people behind the movie were so lazy (other than stealing an existing movie), that the poster itself was simply made on a computer.
  16. The movie is only 14 minutes long, which is just way too short. Even other short movies like Ratatoing wouldn't be that short.
