Are Lion King 2019 and and Lion King 1994 both inspired by Hemlet by Shakespeare?

I mean, I can definitely see the similarities between The Lion King and Hemlet!

    Hemlet...i think that must be a new one unless you mean Hamlet. The similarities are there but they are scarce. The people love Hamlet, not everyone loves Simba. Ophelia is dead, Nala isn’t. In the family dynamic, that is the only thing similar between the two

    Maybe, maybe not. There are many antecedents for stories about young men being supplanted by evil relatives.

    Actually they are more closely related to Kimba, The White Lion series form the 1960s.

    The play is called HAMLET.

    There is a slight resemblance - but only in that there's a father-son relationship and a wicked uncle.

    But that's all.

    If you can see similarities between the Lion King and Hemlet, you have not been reading Shakespeare! He wrote "Hamlet" - spelled thus.
