Does cub Simba have a undeserved bad reputation?

If I remember Matilda correctly that book was far from being realistic. Didn't it have a principal who pretty much killed the other students in over the top ways? Or am I just thinking of the film adaptation?

You were pretty close to my thoughts as I always pictured Simba to be about seven or eight years old. This movie timeline isn't going to necessarily stick with perceived time (SP shows that) and JTT was a popular child actor so it would be close to that age range. I work with pre-K kids (3-5) for kindergarten readiness and they would not be as articulate as Simba nor if Simba was too young do I think Sarabi would be so nonchalant letting her son go into the Pridelands even with Zazu as a guide.

I'm gonna throw my two cents in here and hopefully not sound dumb or repetitive.

I personally think that if Simba hadint been so silly and childish in the beginning of the movie, it wouldint have made as big of an impact on us vewers when hes forced grow up after he loses his father.I personally think this would have been a bit more obvious and more impacting had Timon and Pumba not come along and cause him to ignore his problems back at home, but you still get the point. :roll:

JTT was 13 when he played Simba, so I'd say the lowest we could go on Simba's age is 8. Ages 9 through 11 are also reasonable. Keep in mind, the animators worked in physical characteristics of the actors when finalizing the character designs.
