Betrayal In Hamlet And The Lion King

65 Words1 Page

The theme of betrayal is commonly explored throughout the stories of Shakespeare's 'Hamlet' and Disney's 'the Lion King'. Both texts express that betrayal should be avenged, just like how Simba and Hamlet both avenged their father’s deaths. However, Disney's remake of 'Hamlet' shows viewers that betrayal doesn't have to result to killing and murder, but about the feeling of vengeance and knowing where you belong.
