SHADOWLAND

THE LION KING

"Shadowland" was written into the 1997 Broadway musical, 'The Lion King', based on the 1994 Disney film of the same name. 

"Shadowland" is a soulful power ballad sung by lead lioness, Nala. The song narrates her decision to leave the Pride Lands, where her and her pride live, to find a more habitable place. This comes after villain, Scar, has driven the Pride Lands to be barren and full of sorrow.

Critics say that this song also looks at themes of feminism, injustice & the ecosystem. It's open to your interpretation!
