Film Theory: Why Scar is the RIGHTFUL King! (Disney Lion King)

    Disney's live action Lion King is causing a stir among Disney fans. I agree, this movie brought up a lot of questions about remakes and live action reimaginings of classic Disney movies... but maybe not how you think. See, the original Lion King ends with Simba taking over Pride Rock and everything is sunshine and happiness. When Disney decided to do a "real" Lion King, I looked into the behavior of IRL lion prides and WHOA! If Disney did a REAL Lion King, well... prepare to have your childhoods ruined. Again.

    Have you ever noticed that lions have more then 1 or 2 lion cubs BUT in the move it's not like that at all.

  • LEGOManiac101 /ScarAndShereKhanFTWMufasaFTL

    I assume that Mufasa was adopted when he was a cub.

    Matt, I like your videos. But you can be so stupid sometimes. Mufasa is the king, why else would he be “King Mufasa”. Scar is the bad guy retard.

    If Muphasa and Scar are brothers that means they share the same genes. Right? Meaning Nala and Simba would survive. Right?
