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.

  • Matpat: Doing more animation than Disney these days James: Ooh, I burned my finger on that *Hot Take*

  • The girl cubs would be left alive because they are cutie hunters.

  • Lion King 1 1/2 or Lion King 3 Hakuna Matara?

  • That means that the last winner is... GIRLS!!!

  • There's a scene in the movie where scar is trying to seduce Nala but they cut it out. I can't find it but it's out there.

  • So do I tell him

  • Simba’s child is a girl not a guy

  • If scar had 2 scars would his name still be scar or would it be scars?

  • You forgot amazing feline rendition of a band

  • Why do I feel so much pain when he’s right

  • Make that five live action movies Lady and the tramp

  • You killed my childhood

  • Why is there a beetle from south america in the trailer why...

  • Simba is the right king!!!

  • aweemba womba wae-

  • Wow, anyone else just have in mind that this is a movie, and not like real. It's made up for kids, can we not just enjoy it for what it is? Jeez man, science kinda sucks am I right?

    • @Ren C ok, it's ur opinion idc

    • No

  • Scar is actually simba's father because they both have tufts on the back of the legs and mufasa dosen't, also I saw simba the other day I told him to mufasa. Simba in swahili (African language) means lion

  • "He has a scar that means he's evil" Me: *LAUGHING EVILY IN HAVING TWO SCARS

  • Well simba is standing at pride rock at the end

  • TLDR: Scar is the Alpha

  • Who else liked Scar more than Mufasa🤷‍♂️

  • Is it just me or do you guys think MatPat should make a theory about Coraline??

  • "Multi-hoofidly" bruh its a lion

    • He refered to the animals that stomped Mufasa to death (I forgot what they were called)

  • There’s loin king 2

  • Does this mean sora from kingdom hearts would be a good lion king

  • What if Mufasa was adopted

  • I think the real story of the lionesses killing scar and becoming an all female pride (since all the males are dead now) is a better story....even tho they would die out cus they dont have any cubs

  • So scar is evil, but he is good, but he is evil?


  • Ok i think you just killed the movie and turned it into a horror movie

  • Didn't Scar mentioned something about being "At the shallow end on the gene pool" implying that He has better brains than brawn. So therefore this theory really can't stand since Scar basically disproved it at like the beginning of the Movie.

  • Oh my god😫

  • After watching the remake as an adult i realized simba was a self entitled little prick.

  • 2:21 who else thought that was messed up

  • The characters are NOT lions, They are human personalities in lion bodies. Their behavior is derived from human behavior more than lion behavior. Like all stories.

  • #girlpower

  • # girl power

  • If you didn’t notice in the beginning there was a same pause before he said film in film theory as if he stopped himself from saying something else just something I noticed

  • Actually, i disagree. I mean, sure if it WAS made to be completely realistic, then it would mean that the remake would go like that, but there's one little problem: it ISN'T supposed to be realistic. Yeah yeah bla bla "its supposed to be realistic" it still doesn't mean they're throwing in another story. They probably just made it LOOK realistic, but never planned to make it an almost completely different movie it's a REMAKE, not "a remake that should be realistic in every single way" THINK AGAIN, DUMMIES!
