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...

There's more to see than can ever be seen
More to do than can ever be done
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 and small on the endless round

It's the circle of life
And it moves us all
Through despair and hope
Through faith and love
Till we find our place
On the path unwinding
In the circle
The circle of life

As always, the internet is swarming with crazy love ideas. And the most ridiculous of them all.. Scar X Nala. Okay, Elsa X Hans or something, that's ridiculous, but this is the most ridiculous. Scar can never have a relationship with Nala.

1- Too old
While Scar was an adult, Nala was still a newborn. As the years go by, Nala is growing up and looks the same age as Scar, but Scar is years older than her! We can say that he is like a grandfather next to Nala. Scar had known Nala since she was a baby.

2- Nala has Simba
Okay, let's say Nala ignores this old age detail and falls in love with him, but...

I can see what's happening.

What?

And they don't have a clue.

Who?

They'll fall in love and here's the bottom line:
Our trio's down to two.

Oh.

Ze sweet caress of twilight.
There's magic everywhere.
And with all this romantic atmosphere,
Disaster's in the air!

Can you feel the love tonight?
The peace the evening brings
The world, for once, in perfect harmony
With all its living things.

So many things to tell her,
But how to make her see
The truth about my past? Impossible!
She'd turn away from me.

He's holding back, he's hiding.
But what, I can't decide.
Why won't he be the king I know he is,
The king I see inside?...

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...

“The Lion King” is about a young prince named Simba who goes from a cub whose father was murdered to an adult who takes his place in The Circle of Life.
    Simba (Jonathan Taylor Thomas, Matthew Broderick) is the son of King Mufasa (James Earl Jones) and Queen Sarabi (Madge Sinclair) whose birth means his uncle Scar (Jeremy Irons) is second in line to the throne after him. Scar’s three henchmen are Shenzi (Whoopi Goldberg), Banzai (Cheech Marin), and Ed (Jim Cummings). After Mufasa saves Simba from their plot, Scar decides to murder both of them so he can become king....

I'm not denying the characters' existence in the general TLK universe. This post speaks for the movie universe only.
Please forgive me the frustrated tone. No offense intented to anyone. For now this fandom has just made me so frustrated because it just can't draw a line anywhere when it comes to what is official/canon.

There's a reason why there are the different terms; canon, semi-canon, fanfiction. Because there's a difference and the difference matters. I personally welcome fanfiction with open arms into my interests in fandoms - but I do find it also awfully important that the facts are...

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...

On a very rainy day in the Wildlands a little cub was born it's mum named it Zira.Zira loved her mum but one day she died,she got killed by another lion in a fight for the land.Zira was very unhappy about her mum's death,so she run away into the Pridelands and when she was running she slipped and fell into the water.
When she was calling for help a different lion heard her and came to save her.Once she asked the lion "What's your name" she asked
"My name is Scar" he replied "My real name is Taka" said the lion,"How did you get the name Scar" Zira asked him and he said "I have an older brother...

Anyone who has seen Lion Guard knows Tiifu and Zuri. But do we really? There are still so many questions about this pair of lionesses.

PARENTS
Okay, so first up: parentage. One thing I hear a lot is that they are sisters. I do not believe that, but if you do, that is fine. As I do not believe they are sisters, I have separate theories for each, so let's start with Tiifu. There is not a lot behind this (yet!), but I think her dad is one of the rebel lions and her mom could be Kula (please tell me in comment if you know something about Kula that disproves this - real proof only!)

For Zuri, I...

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...

This is fluffy/Kiara
Ok the other night I was just playing a random lion king scene in my head. (Don't ask me why I just do that sometimes). Anyway and It hit me. Think about the first scene in the second film. When timon and pumbaa are saying how they are going to teach the new baby,saying: "look at the little guy". Then rafiki corrects them by saying "it's a girl."

Ok now let's think. If we deleted that scene from the movie the story would flow and nothing would change. So why did they incorporate that in the movie? And the answer is... That's right fluffy was indeed originally supposed to be a boy,I mean think...

After all this waiting I finally saw The Lion King 2019 remake last night and I have to say while it wasn't as amazing or breathtaking as the original, it was still a good remake. For this review I will focus on three things: The parts of this movie I loved, what I was neutral on, and what I hated.

Warning: Spoilers ahead!

Loved:

The opening was done shot for shot to bring back nostalgia for the fans and honestly I did not hate that. The opening chant was even exactly the same! Fans grew up with the opening from The Lion King, making memes, singing along, and even hearing the opening song just...

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...

In pride rock Scar is eating his full leg of a antelope as he gets flashbacks of him eating with his family or just his mother which Mufasa and his father was the ones to eat together. Scar stops eating and sighs Scar:"(sigh) why must sorrow flashbacks haunt me now" he says to himself not having the appetite to eat anymore. Scar then sneaks to the very top of pride rock where the only way up is to take a slanted path behind pride rock, once he got up there he takes a look at the very slowly drying up kingdom then at the grey colorless sky. Scar:" (sigh) mother if your up there watching I hope...

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.
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 and small on the endless round.

It's the circle of life.
And it moves us all
Through despair and hope,
Through faith and love.
Till we find our place
On the path unwinding.
In the circle,
The circle of life.

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...

Hi guys, I love this film from the bottom of my heart, so I'll writing a short review about the film as well as the musical scores and the songs of the legendary film that brought us together.

The Story

Based on Shakepeare's Hamlet, Prince of Denmark. The story has provides moral values that we learn in our lives as we grow up, the first one is the put your past behind you and yes, it DOES hurt sometimes. But, we all change it and that we need to improve the future!
The film also promotes parental love, yes we make mistakes in our lives and we learn from it. I truly appreciate that! I was also...

Yes, I know in some cases these people aren't critisising the character so much as the people who wrote him. But I can't defend all the people who have developed Simba at The Walt Disney Company because some of them really messed up, so that title will have to do.

Confused Matthew on YouTube and some others criticise that SImba's adult version is completely unrelated to the child version of him. Essentially that his character development was abandoned in the middle of the film. Also, when reviewing "The Lion Guard: Return of the Roar", most seem to label Simba as a racist because he disapproves...

First off; Yes, I do realize It was clearly meant as a parody of the first film and not as an actual serious midquel. At the most it was to give a backstory for Timon and Pumbaa's friendship. And yes, I know that some jungle scenes between Timon, Pumbaa and Simba were written by the first film's creators but since we don't know which ones, I wouldn't regard them at all as canon.
And I'm 99% certain that they weren't any of those parenting scenes because they completely and utterly contradict their motto "Hakuna Matata" and from the first film it appears their relationship were bachelor friends,...
