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.

  • To be honest there is a better explanation: So in the lion guard series,since scar (Idk his real name btw) is the leader of the lion guard his duty is to protect the pride lands.yhen he met a mysterious lion that tricked home,a snake scratched his eye and scar wins the fight with the lion.he explained to his Bro what happened and mufasa nicknamed him scar,even if he just saved pride rock from terrorism of a totally different lion,I feel bad :(

  • 3:30 " after talking to some clouds " Me: 🤣🤣🤣🤣😂😂🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

  • Problem in the theory scar exiled Simba right but he planned for him being killed by the hyenas what failed so he would still be alive

  • this movie is a bit animaited the lions have no balls

  • although it's not realistic i would say that scar raigned so long becouse he had (let's use a conservative number that is still fake) x4 as many hyenas on his side as there were female lions

  • Isn’t scar already a sexy beast

  • Umm mufasa is not a dominant lion hes father ahdi chose him to be the next king

  • This is how much he says “end quote” | | V

  • At 8:28 i saw tigra from marvel. But the problem is that shes not a villain. She actualy served as an avenger in the 1980s. I am a nerd. I know.

  • Why would Scar be the RIGHTFUL KING if he allowed the hyenas to kill other animals like Elephants, Zebras and Giraffes?

  • It makes me so sad how excited you were for the remake :(

  • Not fully true what if simba had just been forced to leave and only female cubs where killed. I mean it looked as if simba was the only male at the time.

  • In the Lion King 2, Kovu, son of Scar, cousin of Simba, mates with Kiara, his cousin's daughter Wut

  • U see James saying the live action lion king will be more accurate to real lions life is funny because they didn’t do that.

  • More epic and brutal ending?!?!? SCAR WAS EATEN ALIVE AND MUFASA (I think I misspelled it) DIED AT THE BEGINNING OF THE MOVIE, AND THERE'S A MORE BRUTAL ENDING?!?!?!?!?!?!?

  • MatPat: "be prepared, dear theorists" Me: *pauses video* "🎶be prepared for sensational new. A shining new era is tip toeing nearer. And where do we feature? Just listen to teacher, i know it sounds sourded but you'll be rewarded when allas i am given my dues, when in .... Blablablablablabla... BE PREPARED!!! 🎶" *Continues the video*

  • this actually looks like the lions are sayin what hes sayin :D

  • I have never seen the Lion King.

  • But Scar’s fur isn’t black in the live action...

  • MatPat, my god, sorry to confront you on this fault in your theory but , the lionesses in fact wouldn't have attacked because knowing that their environment would die out they would stay and not hurt him until a new lion would take over that is why Nala went out to go look for a new king. And about the ....incest.... thing Nala probably got really overjoyed to see some lion to take over so the environment wouldn't fall apart. Once again my god, MatPat, I'm sorry for doing this I just thought it was important to tell someone this information, say hi to your family for me. Signed, ocean, man, childofland

  • Mulan will be out in March next year I’m sooo EXCITED

  • Coincidence I watched this than came home to watch RO-tv and BOOM THIS WAS HERE

  • Ýñ^& uolkjcdr90___% bjtxnl>●``

  • this is way you don't mess with girls and their food

  • Crap

  • What's the more sadder death Mufasas death or the Death of Future Gohan from Dbz (including the scene Trunks finding the corpse)

  • I think that Scar and Mufasa arnt brothers

  • I think simba as a cub is adorable!!

  • If a lion wants to be a king then they must kill the current king to earn the throne. So basically scar didn’t do anything wrong.

  • Cats kill other kittens too sometimes

  • oh come on it was a movie . a bit fantasy would be added into it but still Lion king remains the best

  • well technically scar did send the hyenas to do his dirty work, and kill simba. they just failed

  • #girlpower

  • I loved lion king

  • This doesn’t matters simba had the king pure generous brave heart so it was his place and yeah even in nature the king who wind the fight gets the throne.So you are wrong. Thanks for the likes

  • Well that theory all ok but because mufasa was stronger,braver and the real king because of its pure heart,king attitude,love for pride rock,0 selfishness and his mission to give value to pride rock this makes him the king.Kings are not made because of appearance they are made because of hearts.By the way scar didn’t have the courage to fight mufasa face to face so he is just a evil crook. Thanks for the likes

    • Agreed. These weren't lions, they were humans, and this was the human way.

  • I love the lion king even more now! Scar allways my favorate charecter in the movie! Knowing he was the rightful king makes me really happy and I don't know why.

  • Film theory - murder your childhood as soon as you click No hate sorry for comment just thought it was funny

  • It's a film tho is there much logic used? And its because Mufasa is kind he lets his brother stay... black maned lions r VERY notorious in the wild.

  • 8:29 I want this to be a thing 😂

  • also scar is technically related because hes mufasa's brother

  • spoilers matpat...its not. its just the same but worser somehow

  • Did u know that Nalas dad is scar. Because nala doesn’t have a dad and Mufassa and scar are the only male lions in the pride so...... saffrana (who is nalas mom) is scars wife or mate

  • "geneticly deficiant lion" alright adolf calm down

  • Simba might just come back to take back the vacant throne

  • Hmmmm. I saw the new lion king. Sorry

  • oml the intro made me wheeze-

  • Man... that didn't really work at the way we expected

  • Okay, he might be the rightful King, but that doesn't mean he would be a good King, he's terrible

  • whos watching this in 2019 when it already came out and saw it

  • Spoiler alert! The 2019 version was not as good as the original, ...and the death scene traumatized this generation just as bad as the last one

  • even thogth after scar killed his own brother. seems legit.

  • Mufasa is the best mufasa army attack’s!

  • Who hasn't watched the film yet but are watching the theory


  • spoiler alert the ending was the same and the thing was the same other than a few different

  • Do I hear Alabama music playing

  • 8:11 lol

  • So it is a more realistic version of a monarchy. Seriously, the Habsburgs family tree is more like a wreath.

  • So the next movie is scary

  • "I'mma throw out every piece of information in the movie and instead rewrite the plot based on what I know about wild lions and base my understanding of the movie on that instead of on the movie." Come on. Don't be that dumb.

  • This is confusing I thought nala was the step sister of simba I thought scar and simbas mom made nala

  • The real question is.. HOW DO THEY MAKE BEBES?? THE MALES HAVE NO PEEPEE poopoo..

  • could you plz try be more sensitive about others? (it's hard to believe you do not know where the "bejesus" word came from)

  • 'Kimba' was rightful king 😢

  • I'm watching the lion king while also watching this. Also then why is Nala still alive at the end

  • Ok, I actually learnt 2 things with this. Still I already knew pretty much everything you said un the video (I'm not complaining) Also, I never cried or felt disturbed with this movie and I saw Jurassic park before this soooo. I actually like it better if it's more brutal.

  • So Simba and Nala Did "Sweet Home Alabama"?


  • #girlpower

  • #theevilkingscarkilledmofasa

  • Whe at 1:00 i will cry because mofasa died by his evil brother

  • #ripkickedkongsimba

  • Fast forward to 2:40. This guys talks gibberish until then.

  • I did see the movie but its the same

  • I'm from minnesota and WE DO NOT HAVE A ACCENT!!!!!!!!

    • You made a grammar mistake you syrup drinking, Coal mining, idiot

    • i'M fROm MiNNeSotA AnD We dO noT HavE A AccEnT, Don'T ChA KnOw

  • FYI Minnesotans don't talk like that unless you go near the Canadian border

  • It's not that good. It's exactly like the cartoon

  • Omg dude. (This is late as) Scar is my favorite character!

  • I would like to think that Panthera is Pantera tribute band that dress up like lions.
