Rae the Lioness

Rae the Lioness is an anthropomorphic lioness and another new member of the LionKingHeart Fantasy Films crew.

Rae was employed at the circus at the time when she met Benny, Leo, Johnny, and the Fantasy team. Also at that time, she became close friends with Mrs. Jumbo, who was expecting a baby, but the stork didn't show up. She allows the team to share the train car with her and Mrs. Jumbo and traveled on to the state of New York, around the time when the stork finally came and delivered a baby elephant named Jumbo Jr., but later adopted the name Dumbo.

She is extremely upset when they locked Mrs. Jumbo up when she is just trying to protect Dumbo from being tormented by kids. When
