This one is pretty good for beginners:
http://fixbyproximity.com/2d-game-development-course/
The code is in C++ iirc, and I do not recommend anyone to run from C++. It is not as bad as most people try to make one believe.
The only problem I see with it is that it uses videos on most of it.
As I hate video tutorials, that is a downside for me, but if you like video tutorials, it will be a plus for you of course.
 
But yes, as you pointed out yourself, C++ is not a requirement to making games. Actually, today you can make games without programming anything at all.
 
You could also take a look on Haxe and Löve2D.
GameMaker may be of interest as well, it has loads of learning resources everywhere and is actually a professional tool, not just a toy, as there are several GameMaker games on Steam these days.
 
And, LionKing was awesome. So was Aladdin!

The only problem I see with it is that it uses videos on most of it; being text only on its very start.
