Ok, when I found out that Kiara is a cub in The Lion Guard I didn't like it. Don't get me wrong. I am trying to make myself get used to the idea that Kion is a cub, not to mention the same age as Kiara according to what Disney just said. Yes, he is the second born but maybe he was from the same litter (making kiara and kion twins). So yeah.. he was born after Kiara and as it turns out he is the same age as her (not a big fan of that either).
By the way yes he is the second born because -for the last time- there is no Kopa! :P
However! It makes scenes from the second movie not make any sense!...

An archetype is a model device commonly used in media, and there are quite a few of them present in The Lion King. Sometimes archetypes are used to allow the viewer to make a better connection with a character or narrative, sometimes they are used to symbolise something important, and sometimes they are used simply because it makes sense to do so. Here are just some of the archetypes used in the 1994 animated movie...

Reluctant Hero
This is, of course, Simba. The Reluctant Hero is a common archetype used in a lot of movies, and is normally the protagonist. Simba is the good guy and the rightful...

Let's start with the fact how Kopa was never and is not canon nor a movie character at all: link.

But some people think that the more believers Kopa has the more real he'll become. As in that if many enough believe in him as canon regardless of Disney saying he's not, Disney would make him into what those believers want him to be.

Well, Kopa believers: If I were you, I wouldn't hold my breath. And here's why.

The books and Kopa are outsider written and look what happened: Disney approved him for profit and childrens' entertainment in books known only in USA and did not even refer to him in the...

Surprisingly few have heard about Fluffy and many of those who have, are confused with all the books and the sequel and stuff. Here's the story digging into facts of the timeline and looks, as well as the official words by the film's makers.

I originally created this article to The Lion King Wiki as SuperBabySimba, but as Wikis can be edited by anyone who is confused and prefers daydreams over facts, I chose to post this original version here to help those who are interested. :)

FLUFFY'S STORY

I just stumbled over the seemingly popular interpretation that Mufasa's ghost was only in Simba's mind and that's why he didn't tell the truth about how he died. I was like 'Whaaaat?!' That never crossed my mind, in all these 15 years.

I guess it is kinda left up to the viewers interpretation in the film but Mufasa truly appearing to guide his son, fits the theme of the story much better than just Simba's imagination.

Rafiki had summoned him. You know Rafiki was able to do weird stuff, such as seeing that Simba is alive and where to find him, by doing something to the dust in the wind that had...

I mean no affiance to those who love the lion king 2. And please don't leave any nasty comments, thank you.

First off, the animation.
The animation in the lion king 2 is totally horrible. Simba is darker (And somewhere in the movie his eyes are actualy blue!) , Nala is to bright and her eyes are to blue, Timon is dark and Pumba is dark and looks disgusting. The only charicters that looked like they did in the first movie were Scar and Mufasa. The wildebeests in the nightmare scene looked like wolves! I actually think that that the animators took more time and work in drawing the new characters...

I've been wanting to do this for a long time, so here I go. My little character psychology analysis on the three most crucial characters for the official story. In a way this results in Simba born -> Scar the bad guy -> Simba the bad guy -> Zira the bad guy -> the being bad ends with Simba growing into his father's son.

SCAR:
Nothing official is known about his past, but we can assume something made him want to be the king perhaps more than his brother ever did. I personally like to think it was not any remarkable amount of neglect by their father, but just Scar's desire for freedom...

This is fluffy/Kiara
This is fluffy/Kiara
Ok the other night I was just playing a random lion king scene in my head. (Don't ask me why I just do that sometimes). Anyway and It hit me. Think about the first scene in the second film. When timon and pumbaa are saying how they are going to teach the new baby,saying: "look at the little guy". Then rafiki corrects them by saying "it's a girl."

Ok now let's think. If we deleted that scene from the movie the story would flow and nothing would change. So why did they incorporate that in the movie? And the answer is... That's right fluffy was indeed originally supposed to be a boy,I mean think...

Kopa got up and shook his body to life. He bounced over to his mum, Nala, and pressed his paw up against her face in an attempt to awaken her. Her eyes fluttered open and she mumbled something under her breath.
"Mum, can I go out to play?" Kopa put on a cheesy grin,"Pu-leeaasee?"
"Your just like your father"
"So is that a yes?"
"Go ahead, but be careful, because if your anything like your father, I'm sure you'll get yourself into lots of mischief!"
Kopa bounded out of the cave opening and strait down into the grassy Savannah. As he was running through the grass he saw a big rock which reminded...

Following includes:
Opinion and language



We all saw when Simba and Nala rolled down the hill right? Well thats the thing. It looked as if Walt diseney puts secret things inside the movie but no one even notices.



Was Nala actually in heat? Well I think so because her eyes tell the whole story and sex is written all over simba. On Fan fiction they make simba more drunk and Nala is grumpy and shes the one I would Think I'm ok with. She's usually more entergetic tho.

its been a while since they had released the lion king in 3d or the movie itslef in genral so lets talk about making the lion king in new Anamtion they use today right here in 2014 a sequel to the Lion king 2 simba's pride would be nice right? yes it would but they would end up using the old anmation instead of the new becuase if they used the new anmation the movie simply would not look right on the count of that i would say they first should redo the movie one at time first the lion king 1 then 2 . we must understand that disney wil l not do so, the piture i provided should give you a understanding...

So, here is my comparison on both the animated version and its live-action reboot. Ready?

The Story

While the majority of the story is the same, there are a couple of changes in the story, like we get to see more of Scar, Sarabi and Nala shortly after Simba was exiled and Mufasa's death. (Tied)

The Characters

One thing that I am very impressed is that both Nala and Sarabi have more character developments in this reboot. I am very happy for her independence and bravery throughout the entire film. (2019 Version)
Scar on the other hand, is very much like King Stefan from Maleficent despite that...

I wrote the whole thing myself and i am hoping this is gonna be good.


*The Lion King 3: The return of kopa*


*Part 1*

The sky was reddish pink, it was turning morning the animals lined up for Kiara and Kovu's official wedding at the Pride Lands, Vitani stood up looking proud at her brother. Wind blew againts her brownish-gold fur and through her bangs as she watched her brother and the other lionesses roar. Kiara and Kovu stepped up the pride rock and roared as the animals went wild. Kiara and Kovu hugged each other as Nala and Simba roared with them.


Later on, Simba and Nala were walking along...

A second part from Lion king 3 i made :D Hope you like this. :D!!!




It was already afternoon, every body settled in the cave to hear Kopa's story from the begin-ing when he got lost. He sat beside Vitani, they seemed to be all cuddled up.

Kopa: It all Started when Zira after attacked me. She put me on a rock by the river, where nobody would see me, she washed herself because if any-one knew it was her, she would have been killed. Later on that day, I saw my-self on the rock but i was so dizzy every-thing was circling around.

Kiara: You mean the river by the mountin?

Kopa: Nodds I saw a shape of...

I think everyone who has seen "The Lion King" and "The Lion King 2: Simba's Pride" movies can agree that "The Lion Guard" doesn't do
a very good job with fitting in there. I have only seen all of "The Return of the Roar" and several clips from some other episodes. But that's enough to conclude that this TV show fails miserably as a Lion King series. I'm sure the majority of my fellow Millenials from this fanbase agree with me, but I know there are Lion King fans who nonetheless enjoy and love this new series. Fans who don't think it sucks. Good for you, guys, if you can find something to enjoy...

Kiara and Fluffy blend as one cub
Kiara and Fluffy blend as one cub
Many annoying comments from fans who believe Kopa is Fluffy which isn't true.

Here are 10 different comments from them from Youtube:

1. "that can't be Kiara, in these movies the males are yellow and the females are beige-colored, and that baby is yellow."

2. "that's there first child Kopa....he is a boy and Kiara's older brother."

3. "ok at the end it is not Kiara it is Kopa before the making of the lion king 2 they changed it 2 Kiara instead of being it Kopa =3."

4. "I am not a fan of lion king, but still kopa is true!"

5. "the cub is not Kiara. It's supposed to be Simba's and Nala's son,...

Cub Vitani
Cub Vitani
Vitani has light tan-colored fur that is slightly tinted orange, electric blue eyes with dark eye shades, and a tuft of hair on her head. As a cub, she was briefly the same size but a little older than Kovu. She has very bright fur compared to most of the Outsiders. As a child, her fur was almost orange in some scenes.
As a young adult, she bears a close resemblance to her mother, Zira, and her hair tuft starts to recede as well as gain dark ear rims. She also has freckles, and is thin and lanky, yet very muscular like all the other Outsiders. Her fur becomes more yellow and Pridelander-like,...

Hi guys, I had seen the live-action reboot of the Lion King and here is my review on this all-time classic that we grew up with. Then, I will write a comparison article on both versions.

The Story


Okay, I am very impressed that the majority of the film is left untouched. Except that a couple of scenes are relatively new that were not seen in the 1994 animated feature, which also includes character developments for both Nala and Sarabi at the Pride Rock after Simba was expelled.
But, I was a little disappointed that a couple of scenes were shortened and rush. But on the other hand, they did...

These are of course only my own, personal TOP10 reasons for loving it. :)

1. It's very unlike your standard Disney cartoon. It's dark and psychologically deep and complex story and doesn't sugar coat anything. Even the dead stay dead. Apart from Mufasa's ghost coming to guide Simba, but he was still dead! And unlike usually, the "resurrection" actually works for the story instead of being there to make kids happy. I mean, without the ghost scene the story would've been very different.

2. It bases on Shakespeare's 'Hamlet' mixed with a bit of the story of Moses from the Bible. That makes the story...
