I found this column that has a full discussion on the 'Was the Lion King a rip-off?' controversy. Tom Sito is quoted in the article. Any interested Disney-haters or anime fans can go to http://www.straightdope.com/columns/991224.html

Also, Hamlet was not based on a Bible story. Shakespeare got the story from Holinshed's Chronicles, which told the story of Amleth, a Danish prince who really existed. (MacBeth really existed, too.)
