  • Feather! It's raining!

  • Nothing... I'm trying to sleep.

  • Let him sleep.

  • Don't just sit there slack jawed.

  • Get up.

  • C-Cansu?

  • I told you.

  • You can call me Rain.

  • My Pride is not intended for children and contains mature themes and violence.

  • Cubs, observe Pride Law. Avert your eyes.

  • NOTHING: Why didn't you tell us you were a Goddess when you first met us?

  • I don't usually volunteer that information.

  • We're here.

  • We're still on the Prideless Stretch.

  • Close your eyes.

  • A thousand seasons ago, the world was a very different place.

  • Instead of Prides, all lions belong to one of the three Great Kingdoms.

  • This is how a story my grandmother used to tell me began.

  • Each Kingdom had their own territory but all lions lived in harmony in

  • a special, sacred place called the Emerald Valley.

  • Open your eyes.

  • How did you do that?

  • This way. C'mon.

  • This is where you were born.

  • Look.

  • Can they see us?

  • Nope. This is just a memory.

  • But, it's not my memory. I was born at the Sisters Steppe.

  • You were called Kyoga and that cut you're playing with is Lite.

  • Kyoga and Lite from the legends?

  • You were both chosen by your Goddesses as leaders of your Kingdoms.

  • You were promised to eachother as mates.

  • ...To create peace between the Sun and Moon Kingdoms.

  • I know this story, why are we here?

  • Because you don't know this story.

  • Come on.

  • Is that them? They grew up!

  • Shh! Pay attention.

  • I've never even left the Emerald Valley and set foot on the wider territories.

  • I don't think I'm ready to lead.

  • There's no way we could feel ready for this, it's a huge responsibility.

  • You're not helping!

  • I'm not finished!

  • I'm saying we'll be fine. The Goddesses don't make mistakes. We were born for this, and

  • we'll always have eachother. That's all we need. Right?

  • Right.

  • I'm gonna go get some rest.

  • Night! I'll be there soon.

  • See, Kyoga liked Lite just fine. But something was missing.

  • This is one of the most famous love stories in history,

  • what could have possibly been missing?

  • Her.

  • Is he gone?

  • He's gone.

  • I missed you!

  • Don't make me stay away so long next time. I won't survive!

  • I'm sorry Karabi, I just don't...

  • Don't want Lite to think...

  • That's Karabi the Terrible?

  • But they seem like friends. Or...

  • Kyoga cared for Lite, but the only lion she loved was Karabi.

  • I don't see why you don't just tell him about us!

  • What will you do on your joining day?

  • I'll go through with it.

  • It's important for our Kingdoms that we lead together so we will.

  • And then that's it for us?

  • No! I mean I don't want it to be.

  • I love you.

  • Right you love me but you don't want anyone to know about us.

  • Sure.

  • We need this alliance with the Sun Kingdom!

  • What am I supposed to do!?

  • I don't have a choice, Karabi.

  • You weren't born to serve a purpose.

  • You were born to live a life.

  • There's always a choice. What do you want your life to be?

  • Not Lite or your Kingdom, you.

  • Come on. This way.

  • Where is she!?

  • Lions from across the Three Kingdoms are out there waiting for our Joining Ceremony!

  • We've searched the valley. No one's seen her, sir...

  • Well look again! She could've been kidnapped or killed!

  • Lite! I have news of Kyoga.

  • Finally! Where is she?

  • She and Cansu's chosen Karabi, left together...

  • She sent me to tell you she's safe and not to worry.

  • Left with her? What do you mean?

  • It seems she... means to join with Karabi rather than you. Sir.

  • You're lying. She was kidnapped.

  • No, she was very clear--

  • I am Sunce's Chosen! Leader of the Sun Kingdom!

  • I decide what's true!

  • Where have they gone?

  • They didn't say.

  • No matter. I'll find them.

  • [SIGH ]

  • This way.

  • Lite started a war between the Sun and the Storm kingdoms,

  • accusing Karabi of kidnapping his bride and

  • demanding retribution.

  • It resulted in carnage on a scale never seen before or since.

  • Soon enough, desperate to end the violence,

  • Kyoga and Karabi agreed to meet Lite at the highest point in the Valley.

  • I've dreamt of this place...

  • I came alone just like you asked.

  • Now give her back and all of this can be over.

  • Stay back. We came here to talk, that's all.

  • Please, stop this Lite! I can't give you what you want.

  • That's not true! You loved me!

  • I loved you dearly as my friend. Nothing more.

  • You abandoned me? Without a word?

  • I did what I had to do to be happy.

  • Please. Let us live in peace.

  • There is no peace without you!

  • I love you!

  • Kyoga, look at me.

  • I said, STAY BACK!

  • Karabi stop it, what are you doing!?

  • He's a monster Kyoga!

  • He'll keep hunting us as long as he's alive! I have to end this!

  • Please don't kill him! I know he's done horrible things but...

  • He was my friend. I...I can't watch you...

  • Please, Karabi, let him go! For me.

  • Only for you.

  • Thank you, Karbi.

  • Lite, I'm sorry--

  • Karabi!

  • She was gonna kill me! You heard her!

  • I had to strike first, she's CRAZY!

  • I'm so sorry. You were right.

  • I'm so stupid. Please hold on.

  • I love you so much. Please hold on for me.

  • Kyoga, I'm talking to you! Look at me!

  • Asra may take me but you will never win.

  • For the peace you have denied us, your soul will know no peace.

  • Not in this life or the next.

  • Every life you live upon this Earth will be marred with suffering

  • and I will be your death in each and every one of them.

  • So says Asra, the Goddess of Death, you are and

  • will always be cursed, Lite of the Sun Kingdom.

  • None of this played out the way it did in the story.

  • That's because Lite was the only one left to tell the story.

  • He told it and told it and when the Kingdoms fell he built Pride Law

  • out of his hate and fear.

  • When Sunce rose in the morning to discover Asra had interfered

  • with the lives of the mortals, her fury was so hot and fierce

  • the whole of the Emerald Valley was set ablaze.

  • I did my best to put out the flames but...

  • it wasn't enough.

  • Asra's been missing since then and Sunce's anger has never subsided.

  • That's why the dry season is longer and harder every year.

  • Asra's been missing? This whole time?

  • But who's been taking spirits to the stars?

  • No one. Ghosts are trapped on Earth till she returns.

  • That's why I need your help.

  • Me?

  • You are Kyoga, you're destined to kill Lite, whoever he is in this life.

  • But if you do, the cycle will only repeat again.

  • Asra will stay hidden, dry season will get worse, and Pride Law will continue.

  • I want you to help me end it.

  • I'm sorry. I think you have the wrong lioness.

  • I'm not Kyoga or a legend, I'm just...

  • Nothing.

  • You can believe that and do nothing or you can help me fix a broken world.

  • Your choice.

  • Okay. What do you need me to do?

  • Find Asra.

  • She's in the Shifting Place. She and Sunce have got to reconcile, but it's

  • under a curse to shift some place else if Sunce or I get too close.

  • I wouldn't even know where to start looking.

  • It'll come to you darlin'. It always does...

  • But, uh, Asra won't leave it if she knows it's to see her sisters.

  • Best keep this conversation between you and I.

  • You want me to trick a Goddess?
