That opens up with chanting in a different language
With the royal family
And the adorable children
And the tragic death(s)
And then our hero runs away
And sings a really catchy song about being free
Without realizing that the kingdom is in ruins
And is being ruled by a villain who wants to be king
A villain who is really good at causing guilt trips
And so our hero goes back
And they all live happily ever after
It’s such a great movie
Part of the story telling is actually not that uncommon. It’s actually a relatively popular story telling type called Roman New Comedies (Rom-Coms/Domestic Comedies). The structure goes that you start with the status quo, then there’s a social disruption that causes all of the problems, this then causes some obstacles that your hero has to overcome, these lead your hero to have a realization of what it is they are meant to do, then they go out and restore the order of power, which leads us full circle back to the status quo.
And then there’s the stock characters: The young lovers(Heirs): self explanatory Simba and Nala; Anna and Kristoff, Sennex/Old man: older character who doesn’t want the young lovers to be together Scar/Weselton, the cunning slave/sidekick: comedic relief Timon and pumba; Olaf and Sven, the Matriarch: kinda like the leader of everyone Mufasa/Elsa and Anna’s parents, the parasite: a character who serves no real purpose other than to leech of others Hyenas/Hans.
This isn’t meant to be exact and you can reason differently for each of the stock characters, but regardless you can see that it does follow a similar pattern.
