Never miss a Film Theory! ►
Last time I talked about the Lion King, we were seeing just how big the body count was for this beloved Disney movie and sayong Scar was the rightful king. WEll, we are leaning into that even HARDER this time! Today, I want to talk about the sibling rivalry to end all sibling rivalries - Scar and Mufasa. Theorists, lions are a very, VERY interesting animal. I think that Scar ATE Mufasa after the stampede. You'll have to watch to find out WHY!

  • There are two subspecies of lions: Panthera leo leo (Western Lion) and Panthera leo melanochaita (Southern Lion). The Asian Lion is just a population of Panthera leo leo.

  • When a herbivore is eaten by a carnivore (Trophic Level 3), again only around 10% of the herbivore’s energy passes to the carnivore. Much has been lost through heat production, faecal waste and the fuelling of the herbivore’s own internal processes. We are now left with only 1% of the original energy that the plants absorbed from the sun. This is not a lot.

    PuertoRicanPrincessPuertoRicanPrincessPäivä sitten
  • Every single carnivore eats bones. Around 10 percent of their diet is bone. Hyenas just eat a lot more of them. Around 25 percent of their diet.

  • Hyenas and leopards are two animals that have the capability to eat lions. They don’t tend to go for the healthy lions. These two usually go for the youth of lions or for the elderly and sick. That sums it up though, lions don’t have too many threats to worry about!

  • Now all I'm thinking is a possible subplot to the Lion King where there was a hit out on Rafiki and the hyenas just killed a random baboon and gave him to scar. So the reason he said "It is time" was now is the time for Himself to come out from hiding and find the lost heir.

  • I just have a question about when Simba and Nala have cubs. So in the first movie, after running away from home, Simba meets Timon and Pumbaa who raise him and make him eat bugs in the wildlife. But after Simba becomes king of the Pride Lands, Simba and Nala have a daughter and a son. So are their cubs going to eat bugs for the rest of their lives? Or did Simba resume to eating meat after reuniting with his pride? And what if their children get older? Do their cubs eat bugs or meat? Because how strange does it sound when the Lion Guard goes to save animals in the Pride Lands? Wouldn't it be weird for them to save animals only to eat them when they get older?

  • There's one which in The Amazing World Of Gumball is Rachel Wilson (the character from season 1) became the ruler of the void by the staff who run Elmore. The powers she got was charging at S2 and it using it to reset the world at the last minute of The Finale. She still runs it since season 3-6.

    Sue BurnsSue Burns2 päivää sitten
  • At least Scar would have eaten Simba and all other cups. And by the way if Mufasar was the pack leader and so Simba and Nala are sibblings. And also Scar probably mated with the Lionesses.

  • lion king: litterally shows that animal talking MatPat: Uses real life lion as theory

  • The instant I saw the skull (in this video, as it's been many years since I've watched this movie) I absolutely knew it was a baboon skull. Baboons have scary looking canines primarily used for intimidation, but the rest of their teeth look more like humans. Lions do eat baboons, especially little ones as they have no way to defend themselves against large predators. So, I agree with MatPat.

  • In the Broadway adaptation of TLK, there is a large feline skull at the front of the pile of bones on which Scar reclines in the opener to the second act, “The Madness of King Scar”. I think having that skull there is a callback to the scene in the movie where Scar plays with a skull as Zazu entertains him with the coconut song.
