The Lion King Question

Why Sarabi didn't appear on Simba's Pride ? Can you explain ?

Seriously, She's just like..well..perish. Her name didn't even mentioned by any character in the movie.

I honestly believe it's because Madge Sinclair the voice actress of sarabi died in 1995, and they didn't want to write her character out per say it's just up to us as the audience to assume she's in the back ground. It's kind of dumb seeing as that we would definitely notice she was missing. Although I really like the sequel unfortunately it was very poorly made. :-/

Yeah but couldn't they just find another actress who had similar voice with Sinclair's ? I mean they did it with changing Zazu's voice actor

I would think they could but I guess they didn't want to :-/

Well the actress Madge Sinclair who voiced Sarabi died before TLK 2 came out so Sarabi didn't have any appearance in the film. It could say that Sarabi pass on as well.

Well, yeah they look almost the same but if it's really Sarabi, Disney would write her name on the cast after the movie end

I've always thought and believed, and still do, that it's as simple as this:

Because Sarabi wasn't in any way essential to anything in the story they wanted to tell. As it wasn't about Kiara learning to be a future queen. But it was all about Simba and Kovu following in their fathes' footsteps (in Kovu's case adoptive father's) and about Kovu and Kiara's love story. If Simba needed guidence as a king, he would've asked the Great Kings of the Past which he attempted at one point. Sarabi simply wasn't needed so she was left totally in the background, up to the viewer's decision as for her situation.

Sure it would've been nice if they'd shown her even for a few seconds without any sopeken words, somehow interracting with Simba...But as the movie worked without it and they understandably wanted to focus on essentials...

My belief is that she must've died or past away. I mean, that's at lease what I've been told by other Lion King theorists and fans. I could be wrong.

Sarabi's voice actress died a year after the film was released.
Sarabi is mentioned to only make non-speaking cameo appearances in the film. Possibly looking a little different.

I personally think that Sarabai was somewhere in the background in Simba's Pride and just didn't have any lines.
