Young Adult Nala.

Nala is first seen as a cub briefly with her mother Sarafina sleeping inside Pride Rock when Simba goes to wake up Mufasa. She is then seen later that day getting a bath from her mother when Simba arrives and asks her to come with him to a cool place but when Simba's mother Sarabi asks where the cool place is, he says it is at the waterhole. Nala asks what is so good about the waterhole to which Simba says that he will show her when they get there. The two cubs are given permission by Sarabi to go as long as Zazu goes with them much to the cubs dismay. As the trio get nearer to the waterhole, Nala asks Simba where they are really going and Simba replies that it is an Elephant Graveyard, but knowing Zazu won't take them there the two cubs create a way to distract Zazu in order to get away from him by singing "I Just Can't Wait To Be King" After the song, Simba and Nala are able to escape Zazu and stumble into the Elephant Graveyard where they are pursued by the hyenas (Shenzi, Banzai, and Ed) but are saved just in time by Simba's father Mufasa. Later that night Nala is seen taken home by Zazu while Mufasa and Simba stay behind to talk. She is last seen as a cub along with her mother, Sarabi and the other lionesses after been told by Simba's uncle Scar that Mufasa and supposedly Simba died in a wildebeest stampede and watches in horror as Scar is made king and allows the hyenas into the Pride Lands.

Nala doesn't appear again until Timon and Pumbaa hunt for grubs. An now young adult Nala tries to eat them but is stopped by Simba (also an adult). In the midquel, Nala doesn't appear until she is an adult and her cub form doesn't have speaking lines. Simba realises that the lioness is Nala and Timon and Pumbaa feel jealous about Simba falling in love. They try to break them up, but they fail. Simba and Nala fall in love afterwards.

In the midquel, Timon spreads butterflies to bring love to them. Nala is now worried that Simba isn't returning to the Pride Lands. Arguing, Simba leaves the oasis, leaving Nala alone. In the midquel, Timon congratulates Pumbaa that they made the two lions break up. Nala accidentally wakes up Timon and Pumbaa, knowing that Simba ran away to fight Scar, according to Rafiki.

After Nala talks to the sidekicks in the midquel, Timon and Pumbaa don't get it. Nala gets frustrated and runs after Simba who is ready to fight Scar and his hyenas.

Nala is later seen during Simba confronting his uncle, rallying Pride Rock's lionesses, she then realizes it was Scar who really did killed Mufasa and he also blamed Simba for his death. During the battle, Nala she fights off Scar's thugs with the lionesses. She finally appears during the final scene with Simba, where a newborn cub is born.

Mature Nala in The Lion King II: Simba's Pride.

Nala is given a slightly minor role. Now a mature adult and is queen of Pride Rock. After their daughter Kiara goes off to play, Nala tells an overprotective Simba that she will be fine on her own but after Nala leaves, Simba sends Timon and Pumbaa to keep an eye on Kiara. Nala later appears with the other lionesses where they along with Simba go off to find Kiara and find her with a cub named Kovu and his mother Zira who along with her pride where banished by Simba for being loyal to Scar. After Zira and Kovu leave, Simba sends Nala and the rest of the pride back to Pride Rock while he has a word with Kiara. Nala isn't seen again until Kiara is starting her first hunt and tells her she will do just fine. She later feels worried about Simba who is about to banish Kovu from Pride Rock. Nala later appears during the battle of Zira's outsiders which she easily defeats Vitani who taunts her over Kiara's disappearance until Kiara and Kovu arrives to put the battle to an end, then later tries to rescue Kiara who is about to get Zira off the cliff. Nala is later seen roaring happily with the other lionesses when Mufasa's ghost points out, "We are one".

Trivia

  • Nala is voiced by Niketa Calame as a cub and The Cutting Edge star Moira Kelly as an adult.
  • Nala is constantly thought to be the second film's tritagonist and secondary tritagonist.
  • Nala is the third Disney heroine to have known the hero in childhood, separated, and reunited in adulthood, the first two being Faline and Maid Marian (Princess Aurora may or may not count, as she couldn't walk or talk in infancy, and she was hidden in a woodcutter's cottage). Yet, she's the second to actually be seen as a child with the hero, Faline being the first.
  • Nala is similar to Zoey as both are their film's deuteragonist and both are the best friend and love interest of the protagonist (Nala with Simba and Zoey with Rudolph). But unlike Nala and Simba, Zoey and Rudolph don't have children together.
  • Young Nala rarely appears in the midquel, but she is not animated nor seen speaking.
