Trivia

Scar's villain song "Be Prepared" was originally to be left out of the film due to its Nazi themes of which the Disney executives were afraid to tackle and also because Chiwetel Ejiofor's voice was not fit for the singing. This drew a lot of ire from film critics and fans. However, the studio relented and put back the song in the film. See more »

Quotes

Mufasa: [from teaser trailer] Everything the light touches... is our kingdom. But a king's time as ruler rises and falls like the sun. One day, the sun will set on my time here, and will rise with *you* as the new king.
