Disney Audition Monologue Simba: “The Lion King”

long Disney monologue for a male actor:

Character: Simba: “The Lion King” (1994)


I used to think that being king meant having everything you could ever want. But now, I know that’s not true. Being king is about responsibility, about doing what’s right, even when it’s hard. And I learned that the hard way.

When my father died, I ran away. I didn’t want to face the truth, I didn’t want to take on the responsibility of being king. But then I met some new friends, and they showed me that there was more to life than just running away. They showed me that I had a duty to my family, my friends, and my entire kingdom.

So I went back. I faced my fears, I confronted my past, and I took my rightful place as king. And I learned that being king isn’t about having all the answers, it’s about being willing to listen, to learn, and to lead.

And I made some mistakes along the way. I trusted the wrong people, I let my anger get the best of me. But I learned from those mistakes, and I became a better king because of them.

Now, I’m not saying that being king is easy. There are challenges every day, threats from outside and within. But I know that I’m not alone. I have my family, my friends, and my entire kingdom behind me. And together, we can overcome anything.

So if you’re looking for a leader, if you’re looking for someone who will do whatever it takes to protect his people, look no further. I’m Simba, and I’m ready to lead.
