They should've written "this tale was ripped off from Kimba the White Lion" on The Lion King's end credits.
Even it really isn't a rip-off of Kimba to begin with LOL
The story itself is entirely different, the plot is different, the themes and message is different, and there is numerous characters differences such as use of humans(who do play central role in the series). All of this especially in the manga.
If you're thinking of that one site that points all "rip-off". The author of that site really only pick and chooses obvious similarities. It's blatantly obvious the that web author is a weeboo. And if you know anything about the anime community, it's that weeboos take Japanese obsession to a high bias level.
Most of the people who cry rip-off between the two haven't even seen or read the series. Goliath himself even admit he hasn't seen or read the series and yet still says it's a rip-off nonetheless. After Big One and I decided to read and watch the series, we realize that the two are really much much different.
At best Lion King draws few influences from Kimba the white Lion but as a whole the two are way different.
But if you really want to know for yourself, go read or watch the series( suggest read the manga though) and judge for yourself.
