Film Theory: Why Scar is the RIGHTFUL King! (Disney Lion King)

    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 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

    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.

    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.

    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!

    I like the way the narrator says "Hello Internet!" - I think that's the only reason I watched him pretend to be video game characters with his buddies.
