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!

    . They do not prefer eating other predators' meat. Unless if they are in absolutely desperate times. Another reason why lions do not eat other lions is that they do not provide enough energy.

    Do hyenas eat dead lions? . Commonly known as scavenging animals, hyenas eat dead organisms. Yet, hyenas are hunters as well, and they hunt about 80% of their prey.

    7:45 wait didn’t we see that the kingdom was doing very bad and going through dark times, it’s like they were in desperate times to eat another lion? 9:15 also wasn’t scar kinda a rival of Mufasa

    "That's why you don't believe Disney movies or TikTokers" such a weird thing to say about TikTok makers once you consider that people have said similar things about HUpacrs. I think anyone on any platform can make good points if their arguments are based in fact lol. If those arguments aren't factual, discuss that, but don't invalidate the entirety of content on the platform. Seems weird and somewhat outdated thinking to me

    Also when simba comes back at the end, doesn’t scar say something like “mufasa I thought you were dead” and if scar had eaten him, he wouldn’t even think that it could’ve been mufasa, as he’d have eaten him

    The skull is simply too small. Lions do have a lot of fur and skin, but their skulls aren't small enough to be held by the claws of another lion. That's just not possible. (Or if maybe it was just a lion cub the hyenas ate?) (OR- the body might have been taken away and buried (or left there) against Scar's orders.)

    It's is actually unclear if scar did or not eat mufasa I'm mean if it was contrary part of that scene when scar is looking at skull of what could be mufasa head or it could be the head of another lion that scar could have known

    Well, Hyenas do you eat the baby lion but usually do not attack adult lions. But when they do they will hunt in larger packs. The rogue lions will eat other lions only baby lions

    Alright guys, Here we go sorry to do this. But look at the skull and the comparative pictures at 3:48. Look at the brow ridge above the eye sockets then look at the comparative lion's skull. Felines don't have a brow ridge like that, primates do. Lions also don't have flattened molars. Primates do. That's a baboon skull

    If you dont consider the ,,its not a lion skull" bit, you have to keep in mind: lions are just animals with no connection to their victims, but Scar is one of the most evil Characters of Disney and kinda hated Mufasa. I don't think he would let anyone eat him, besides himself, just out of pure spite. Scar would be probably the most brutal Villain in Disney History

    "Simba, quando morremos, o nosso corpo transforma-se em erva. E os antílopes comem a erva. E assim, estamos todos ligados, no grande ciclo da vida." - faz soar alguma coisa?!! O Mufasa tornou-se parte do Ciclo da Vida! O seu corpo sumiu naturalmente! Levaram vários anos para que o Simba crescesse!! O que significa que, por essa altura, o cadáver do seu pai estivesse reduzido a ossos. Se, por acaso, a caveira que o Scar estava a segurar pertencesse ao irmão, provavelmente, ele foi buscá-la mais tarde...

    In the lion king at the point you see scar with the skull it is desperate times. There is no more food in the pride lands. So that means Scar did eat his brother.
