In this article, I explain how The Lion King cannot relate to real life lions.
In everyday Lion King debates, people often use real lion mannerisms for support in what they are trying to say.
"Lions don't act like this in real life, so it can't be true."
"Its the dominent male who mates with the lionesses. Nala must be Mufasa's cub!"
Some of the most common examples. But here, I give a very brief argument against this.
We're talking about (cartoon) lions with human mannorisms here. If we do go by how lions actually live and act, Nala and Simba should have been killed in the first film simply for being Mufasa's cubs.
Scar should have been king for the fact that he had a darker mane than mufasa's,
and Scar wouldn't have the hyena's on his side.
Lions don't have red, green, or blue eyes.
Simba would have killed Nuka, Vitani, and kovu once he became king.
In fact, lions hump eachother to establish dominance. Do we see Mufasa trying to get it on with Scar? No, of course not.
I could go on, the list is endless.
Of course, what I'm saying does have contradictions within itself. I'm not asking for people to change what you believe in because of this, all I am asking is for people to stop and consider this.
Don't let what real lions do in real life effect what you believe in.
Thankyou for reading.
