They however succeeded in killing their own flesh and blood and took over their throne. In both films the deceased kings come via apparition and communicate with their sons. The sons then get revenge for their father and kill their uncle. Each character parallel to another character from each film : King Hamlet Sr.- Mufasa, Hamlet Jr.- Simba, Claudius - Scar, Nala – Ophelia, Gertrude –Sarabi and last but not least Rosencrantz & Guildenstern – Timon & Pumba. The two movies differ in a lot of ways too.
In the end, Claudius‘s corruption gets the better of him as he is killed by his own poison that Hamlet inflected on him but Hamlet is also killed by the same poison. As a result, Claudius’s corruption has lead to the Hamlets’ death. Corruption is disease that has murdered many innocent people. Corruption started off as a greedy man doing whatever it takes to gain access to the throne, yet it led to the deaths of him, the queen, Hamlet and the Polonius family. With Claudius died, peace is finally restored to the State of
Both uncles fail to slaughter their brother the first time. However, they do succeed in killing the king on their second attempt. Scar and Claudius are also very sneaky and conniving to all. They both put on a phony and welcoming face to acquire what they desire. In the end, both Scar and Claudius end up dying the same way as they killed their brother.
Obviously, Simba’s father Mufasa is killed by his own uncle to inherit the throne. This parallels to what happens to Hamlet’s father in Shakespeare’s story. His father is also murdered out of spite for power of the throne. The characters also represent each other throughout the story. Simba resembles Hamlet, Scar resembles Claudius, and Mufasa resembles King Hamlet.
Hamlet thinks it’s the king who is doing the spying and therefore ends up killing Polonius. This foil of Hamlet gives him a violent image and makes him look like he doesn’t know how to control his emotions. Polonius’s problem is the same, yet the results are less severe. Polonius makes himself sound like a fool by not thinking through things thoroughly Another foil in Hamlet is young Fortinbras, the nephew to the king of Norway. Like Hamlet, Fortinbras’ father was also killed, and his uncle took over the throne.
Tragic heroes are people that are fated by the Gods or by supernatural force to doom destruction or at least to great suffering. Oedipus is to blame for the plague because he didn’t know that Laius was his real father and that he was sleeping with his own mother. In order to pay for what he has done he stabbed his eyes out but not fully killing himself because he wanted to please the gods and asked Creon to exile himself from king. He to blame for his downfall because when Jocasta tried to steer him in another direction he chose to go the opposite way which caused him to find out the truth. He chose to kill Laius and find out what his real back round was instead of doing his regular routine.
Young Fortinbras did this through asserting himself and his military to action, and invading the then troubled Denmark. Despite Hamlet’s passive contemplation, he too avenged his father’s murder by stabbing Claudius and forcing him to gulp down a glass of poisoned wine. Both Young Hamlet and Young Fortinbras sought vengeance for their fathers’ untimely deaths, but had contrasting motives and completely opposite plans of action. Fortinbras' father, King of Norway, was killed during battle for control of “a little patch of ground”(4.4, 19). Fortinbras’ uncle claims the throne of Norway just as Claudius took the throne in Denmark, and linked the common destiny between Young Fortinbras and Hamlet in their attempt for vengeance of their fathers’ deaths.
The movie, The Lion King, and the play, Hamlet, both have a similar story lines. In both stories, the king is killed by their brother and revenge is sought by the king’s son, later on in the stories. The murderer in the stories was caused by the king’s brothers who want the power of the throne so bad that they killed their only
When it comes to trickery for power, Claudius murdered his brother King Hamlet in order to become the new King of Denmark, which also relates to the theory of Marxism and the difference between two classes. King Hamlet for example, represents the higher class in which controls the higher majority of power, while Claudius would represent the lower class, since he was a normal citizen in the state of Denmark before the murder of King Hamlet. Claudius committed the murder to control the Danish throne and had secretly lied about the death of his own brother. Another method of deception used by Claudius would be the dishonesty for the sake of his own life. After Claudius had realized that Hamlet knows he committed the murder of his father, he decides to send Hamlet to England to his death, and orders Guildenstern and Rosencrantz to follow Hamlet, and he uses the method of deception by lying to the two courtiers by telling them that he is sending Hamlet away due to his madness and weird behaviour, but Claudius is really afraid for others to find the truth behind King Hamlet’s death.
Another reference that Shakespeare buts in Hamlet is all the revenge killings. There are at least three examples of those killings in Hamlet: Young Fortinbras seeks revenge against Elsinore; Hamlet seeks to avenge the murder of his father, King Hamlet, by Claudius; and Laertes seeks revenge against Hamlet for killing his father. All three of these have to do with murder and revenge, and those two things are what got Cain into trouble with God. In Hamlet, after the death of King Hamlet, deception was brought upon the
