The Lion King IV is a planned sequel to The Lion King Trilogy (this is purely an idea not an actual film being made)
The film takes place after the events of The Lion King II: Simba's Pride & The Lion Guard.
Simba is now a wise king, and the ruler of the pride lands and is teaching Kovu, his future successor of how to be a king, and he also teaching Kiara of how to be a queen. Yet Simba, Nala, Timon and Pumbaa are captured by humans, which Simba believes are going to be killed. But the humans are not trying to kill the lions, but protect the lions from being poached by the hunter, Silas Von Drusko. They also met Akula, his lieutenant and his warriors who were captured too. Will Mheetu, Bhati, Kopa, Kovu, Kiara, Timon's Mother, Uncle Max, Rafiki, Zazu, Vitani, Pridelanders, Outsiders, Meerkat Colony, Animals, Jasiri, Tamaa, Thurston, Muhimu, Muhimu's Son, Kwato, Swala, Ajabu, Badili, Mbeya, Basi, Pua, Shingo, Twiga, The Porcupine Brothers, Ma Tembo, Mtoto, Mbuni, Kambuni, Muhanga, Muhangus, Gumba, Shauku, Tiifu & 'Zuri joined the members of the Lion Guard for Kion, Bunga, Fuli, Beshte & Ono to rescue Simba, Nala, Timon and Pumbaa and return to the Pride lands before Silas Von Drusko wipes out the entire Pride?
