i think the saddest, most traumatising part about the stampede is mufasa’s reaction to scar saying ‘long live the king’
not only does he realise that he’s about to be murdered—knowing mufasa that’s probably the least of his concern—but he’s just realised it’s all a trap. the fate of the kingdom now relies on a tyrant. his brother finally got what he always wanted. and worst of all? his son is still alive. he knows simba’s still alive because he got him onto the perch before he tried to get himself to safety.
mufasa knew scar was going after simba next, and he couldn’t save him.
Happy World Lion Day! The embodiment of power and courage, lions are unique to other members of the large cat family. Lions are the only big cats that have manes, tufted tails, and live in social groups. Each member of the pride plays a role, with lionesses hunting and males guarding territory. (source)
I was listening to We are Family by Keke Palmer from the Ice Age: Continental Drift. I just thought it fit so well!
You have Timon who is the adoptive father of Simba, which makes him Kiara and Kion’s adoptive grandpa. Pumbaa who is the uncle (since he and Timon have a brotherly relationship) that Simba never had, which makes him the adoptive great uncle to Kion and Kiara. And Bunga is Simba’s cousin/brother since he’s the adopted nephew of Timon and Pumbaa plus they have a brotherly bond. Which also makes Bunga kind of like an uncle of Kion and Kiara too XDD
