I just stumbled over the seemingly popular interpretation that Mufasa's ghost was only in Simba's mind and that's why he didn't tell the truth about how he died. I was like 'Whaaaat?!' That never crossed my mind, in all these 15 years.

I guess it is kinda left up to the viewers interpretation in the film but Mufasa truly appearing to guide his son, fits the theme of the story much better than just Simba's imagination.

Rafiki had summoned him. You know Rafiki was able to do weird stuff, such as seeing that Simba is alive and where to find him, by doing something to the dust in the wind that had...

I mean no affiance to those who love the lion king 2. And please don't leave any nasty comments, thank you.

First off, the animation.
The animation in the lion king 2 is totally horrible. Simba is darker (And somewhere in the movie his eyes are actualy blue!) , Nala is to bright and her eyes are to blue, Timon is dark and Pumba is dark and looks disgusting. The only charicters that looked like they did in the first movie were Scar and Mufasa. The wildebeests in the nightmare scene looked like wolves! I actually think that that the animators took more time and work in drawing the new characters...

I think everyone who has seen "The Lion King" and "The Lion King 2: Simba's Pride" movies can agree that "The Lion Guard" doesn't do
a very good job with fitting in there. I have only seen all of "The Return of the Roar" and several clips from some other episodes. But that's enough to conclude that this TV show fails miserably as a Lion King series. I'm sure the majority of my fellow Millenials from this fanbase agree with me, but I know there are Lion King fans who nonetheless enjoy and love this new series. Fans who don't think it sucks. Good for you, guys, if you can find something to enjoy...

Remember who you are!
Hi guys, I will be doing another comparison between 2 movies. Only this time, it is the Lion King and Titanic. Two highest grossing films of our generations!

The Lion King

This was the very first movie that I watched and I love all of the songs. However, the story is based on Shakespeare's Hamlet: Prince of Denmark. Unlike the latter, Mufasa's death is really graphic that I feel disturbed about it and hearing Mufasa's scream down to his death if I were in Simba's place!
Scar is portrayed as a paranoid psychopath, whenever somebody mention his dead brother. He will flies into rage! In fact, he...

1. She does not listen to her parents when they tell her that the outlands are dangerous and that she should never go there, however she gets angry when her father doesn't trust her. How will he trust you if you keep being disobedient?

2. The fact that she knows nothing about self defence and sucks as a fighter (I assume) doesn't stop her from going to the outlands. (I'm talking about the teenager Kiara who "can" think logically). Why would you go to a dangerous place when you can't protect yourself in the first place? Pretty much everyone can outmatch her.

3. After the ambush, when Simba was...

Chapter 3 – A Big Cat’s Sense

    “So… How are you feeling, Timon?” asked Nala in a friendly manner, but with a slight smirk on her face. Timon looked pretty darn beaten and bruised after being the target for the two lionesses’ hunting practices the day before. “I’m doing just great!” he said sarcastically and angrily, as he walked along the forest floor weakly, “I’m glad that I could help you ladies with all your hunting exercises!” “Come on, Timon. It wasn’t that bad.” Kiara assured him. “You can say that. But, you don’t...

The
LION KING 4 - If given a chance

The sun was rising above the skyline shining all over the kingdom.
Simba was watching over the Pride lands from the summit of the Pride Rock with a very solemn expression. Nala came next to him having the same solemn look. Something was going on.
Kovu came out of the cave taking a deep breath. Simba turned around and told him:
“It is time.“
Kiara appeared at the entrance of the cave with tears in her eyes:
“Time?”
“It’s time for you to take your place in the circle of life! “
Meanwhile, the lionesses came out of the cave and set on both...

Ok, when I found out that Kiara is a cub in The Lion Guard I didn't like it. Don't get me wrong. I am trying to make myself get used to the idea that Kion is a cub, not to mention the same age as Kiara according to what Disney just said. Yes, he is the second born but maybe he was from the same litter (making kiara and kion twins). So yeah.. he was born after Kiara and as it turns out he is the same age as her (not a big fan of that either).
By the way yes he is the second born because -for the last time- there is no Kopa! :P
However! It makes scenes from the second movie not make any sense!...
continue reading...
Let's start with the fact how Kopa was never and is not canon nor a movie character at all: link.

But some people think that the more believers Kopa has the more real he'll become. As in that if many enough believe in him as canon regardless of Disney saying he's not, Disney would make him into what those believers want him to be.

Well, Kopa believers: If I were you, I wouldn't hold my breath. And here's why.

The books and Kopa are outsider written and look what happened: Disney approved him for profit and childrens' entertainment in books known only in USA and did not even refer to him in the...

These are of course only my own, personal TOP10 reasons for loving it. :)

1. It's very unlike your standard Disney cartoon. It's dark and psychologically deep and complex story and doesn't sugar coat anything. Even the dead stay dead. Apart from Mufasa's ghost coming to guide Simba, but he was still dead! And unlike usually, the "resurrection" actually works for the story instead of being there to make kids happy. I mean, without the ghost scene the story would've been very different.

2. It bases on Shakespeare's 'Hamlet' mixed with a bit of the story of Moses from the Bible. That makes the story...

Kiara and Fluffy blend as one cub
Kiara and Fluffy blend as one cub
Many annoying comments from fans who believe Kopa is Fluffy which isn't true.

Here are 10 different comments from them from Youtube:

1. "that can't be Kiara, in these movies the males are yellow and the females are beige-colored, and that baby is yellow."

2. "that's there first child Kopa....he is a boy and Kiara's older brother."

3. "ok at the end it is not Kiara it is Kopa before the making of the lion king 2 they changed it 2 Kiara instead of being it Kopa =3."

4. "I am not a fan of lion king, but still kopa is true!"

5. "the cub is not Kiara. It's supposed to be Simba's and Nala's son,...

*this is a gender reverise of madness of king scar*
story: Shenzi has just killed kiara and sent her friend a otter girl named marlene into exile,after taking over the pridelands she put nala in a cage.

Shenzi:Nala why am I not loved.
I'm the best the pridelands seen
I'm every inch a queen
yet I feel a twinge of doubt
as I go walk about
when my name is whispered through the pride
is it of love or loathing?
tell me I'm adored
please tell me I'm adored
benzi:hey shenzi?
shenzi:oh what now?

So, here is my comparison on both the animated version and its live-action reboot. Ready?

The Story

While the majority of the story is the same, there are a couple of changes in the story, like we get to see more of Scar, Sarabi and Nala shortly after Simba was exiled and Mufasa's death. (Tied)

The Characters

One thing that I am very impressed is that both Nala and Sarabi have more character developments in this reboot. I am very happy for her independence and bravery throughout the entire film. (2019 Version)
Scar on the other hand, is very much like King Stefan from Maleficent despite that...

An archetype is a model device commonly used in media, and there are quite a few of them present in The Lion King. Sometimes archetypes are used to allow the viewer to make a better connection with a character or narrative, sometimes they are used to symbolise something important, and sometimes they are used simply because it makes sense to do so. Here are just some of the archetypes used in the 1994 animated movie...

Reluctant Hero
This is, of course, Simba. The Reluctant Hero is a common archetype used in a lot of movies, and is normally the protagonist. Simba is the good guy and the rightful...

Surprisingly few have heard about Fluffy and many of those who have, are confused with all the books and the sequel and stuff. Here's the story digging into facts of the timeline and looks, as well as the official words by the film's makers.

I originally created this article to The Lion King Wiki as SuperBabySimba, but as Wikis can be edited by anyone who is confused and prefers daydreams over facts, I chose to post this original version here to help those who are interested. :)

The Lion King 2019 remake has just been released, and now that I have seen it, I want to write my thoughts on it. This really can't be done without comparing it to the original, and given that I have also seen the Broadway musical, I feel that I may as well write a comparative review all three versions in this article.
Please be aware that this article may contain some spoilers for the new remake movie.


The Original: The Lion King (1994)

This is the version that virtually everyone is most familiar with. If you were a child growing up in the 90s, like myself, there is a good chance that it...

Tangu siku sisi kufika katika dunia
Na blinking, hatua katika jua
Kuna zaidi ya kuona kuliko unaweza milele kuonekana
Zaidi ya kufanya ila anayeweza kufanywa
(From the day we arrive on the planet
And blinking, step into the sun
There's more to see than can ever be seen
More to do than can ever be done)

Kuna mno kuchukua katika hapa
Zaidi kupata kuliko hayawezi kupatikana
Lakini jua rolling juu
Njia ya anga yakuti
Anaendelea kubwa na ndogo juu ya pande zote kutokuwa na mwisho
(There's far too much to take in here
More to find than can ever be found
But the sun rolling high
Through the sapphire sky
Keeps great...

It's a bright sunny day at the jungle as young cub Simba is usually and always the first one up but this time he wakes up being the last one to wake knowing after the death of his father and having to run away there is no one to impress or make proud anymore. Simba gets up and stretches then looks around Simba:" I wonder where Timon and Pumbaa are?" he says talking to himself as he walks going to find his two new best friends. He first looks at the pond where the water of a waterfall ends and is also where they drink, Simba:" not here" he says taking a drink of the water then walking away,...

When I first watched the movie, I was five years old. I remember loving the movie, Mufasa died and crying a lot. So, as you can see, I didn't remember the movie very well, so I watched it carefully again. That's what a fan does.
The hatred I felt for Scar at the beginning of the movie wasn't all that bad because after all, Scar was Simba's uncle and Mufasa's brother. But I still remember that he was a bad person, so I didn't like him. Already, Scar was giving away that he was a bad person with his behavior and appearance.
When he pushed poor Mufasa off the cliff, I cried so much, believe me,...
