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!

    The reason Pride Rock went to heck in a hand basket is not because Mufasa died but, because Scar began over hunting the antelope and other food sources because he had made a pact with the hyenas. This is why we have hunting seasons to keep from destroying reliable ecosystems! Great video and have been watching for years!

    When it comes to whether Scar would eat Mufasa, it might be a last resort for lions to eat lions, but that crag they’re living in doesn’t look teeming with life/prey.

    Living in South Africa and being privileged to go on safari a lot, I went to a lot of museums where they have animal skulls displayed. So knowing about animal skulls, I can definitely say that is not a lion skull, it's a baboon skull. Thanks for doing such fantastic research, Matpat

    God designed our world so that everything would exist in perfect harmony. He made humankind in His image so that we had the capacity to worship Him and walk with Him. Because God created you, He loves you. You exist to glorify Him in a real relationship. Mankind has rebelled against God, choosing to live for ourselves instead of for Him. This rebellion, called sin, has come between us and God. This sin brings about brokenness in our personal lives, our relationships, and also our world. Not only has it separated us from Him and His perfect design, it also brings judgment and death. Because God loves us, He sent His only son Jesus to rescue us from our sins. The Bible says that “God shows his love for us in that while we were sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8). Jesus lived a perfect life, died on the cross as payment for our sins, was buried, and rose again from the dead. His resurrection proves that God has accepted Jesus’ sacrifice for our sins. Believe in Him and go to Jesus in faith and trust in Him and trust in Him for salvation and repent of your sins and He will hear from Heaven and forgive you of your sins and save you from all sin and from death and from the enemy and from the wrath of God that's against sin. (Romans 5,6,7,8, John 3:16, 1 John 1:9). I'll be praying for you to come to know the true God of all and experience His true love and Holy Spirit and salvation and i pray you'll go to Him and get saved Amen in Jesus name
