Film Theory: Why Scar is the RIGHTFUL King! (Disney Lion King)
SUBSCRIBE for More Film Theory! ►
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.

    I guess that's why I watch whole videos before comments haha, I was literally typing the fact that Nala came from Simba's pride where only males I saw in the movie were mufasa and scar. So nalas father is most likely mufasa or scar, so Simba and Nala are either cousins or brother and sister. Children don't understand this in the movie I understand that but...

    One problem... A cartoon lion pride doesn't have to work any way but how the story says it does. A live adapation of it would follow the cartoon story, not the real-life example of lions we have. Your theory falls apart before you even get started because you assume it has to follow real life.

    the purpose of Disney movies have the familiar basic formula. having people believe the good guys always win the bad guys lose everyone is on your side things always work out best. the problems with the lion king are Scar rules over such a dead area meaning all the lions eventually will starve to death. even ghost Mufasa can't help his son from this or the force even the nature of the darkside it can't do everything that you want it too. we are not all of us connected to the earth. and the planet or animals connected to all of us So when people and animals die that's it no anything after. oh and the wheels in the sky keep on turning I don't know where I'll be tomorrow. the wheels in the sky keep on turning oh I don't know where I'll be tomorrow and the wheels in the sky keep me yearning oooooooooooooh yeah. 🎸🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶

    Wait so you're telling me that lionesses find more aggressive lions more attractive because they can defend the cubs? Then why the fudge would they kick the cubs out after 2 years! Why do they even care? It's not like they are ever gonna give a flying duck about them once they are gone. 🤨
