Vitani and Kovu's parents???

Vitani and Kovu's parents???


Are Kovu and Vitani biological brother and sister? Are they Scar's cubs? Are they Zira's cubs?!? Who are their bloody parents?!?!?!


Hellllooooooooooo people! It's been a while, but I've finally decided to make time for another article ^.^


 

Todays issue is about Vitani and Kovu. (surprise, surprise). Who are their parents and are they really brother and sister?


 

Now here are my original thoughts in a nutshell:


 

1) Kovu and Vitani are twins, Vitani being the older


 

2) They are not Zira and Scar's biological cubs (If you want to know the reason for why I think this then read my other article Cub Confusion)


 

3) They were adopted by Zira and Scar after their real parents either died or abandonded them


 

4) They were treated a lot better than Nuka for obvious reasons


 

So, with that said, lets move on to the real reason I wrote this article. This little conflict has always bugged me and every TLK fan that I know. Everyone I talk to either think that Vitani was Scar's daughter or she's Kovu's litter mate who was Zira's cubs of a different father, I've also heard people discussing whether Vitani and Nala are related based on their eye color (blue).


 

0.o seriously...?


 

Ok, here are my thoughts on that particular argument, Vitani and Nala are NOT half sisters. Why would the writers of TLK do that? There is no specific reason for them being sisters and even they [the writers] stated that they didn't want any blood relationships in the story. Basically what I'm trying to say is that just because two characters have blue eyes does not mean that they are related. (Even if it is rare within lions).


 

Back to the issue at hand! After reading some TLK comics, my thoughts and feelings toward Vitani and Kovu's parents have changed drastically. Here, let me show you why:


 

Look at this picture of a young cub named Tama (found in Trouble in Paradise)

Now look at this picture of a young cub named Tojo (found in The Orphan Birds)

File:Tojo.png

As you can see, Tama has Vitani's hairstyle, Tojo has Vitani's blue eyes. My conclusion is simple: these two youngsters are Vitani's parents.

Moving onto Kovu now, I believe that he too, was not Zira or Scar's biological son, instead, being Vitani's twin from two other parents. But now that I've read The Lion King: Six New Adventures, I've suddenly thought that maybe he's come from a different family all together.

Look at these two cubs, Kula (middle) and Chumvi (far right)

They share the same features as Kovu, so perhaps these two are his real parents. What I've come up with is that Tama and Zira were once good friends (possibly growing up from the same pride), Tama then had a cub with Tojo and had Vitani, saying that should anything ever happen to them then their daughter would be put in Zira's charge. Scar drove out all the male lions from the pride (as many lions do) leaving both Kula and Tama alone raising their cubs, the two lionesses possibly died from lack of food (or whatever reason). Thus, Vitani going into Zira's care. However, seeing as Nuka was not going to be a suitable heir, they took in Kovu to train him as future prince but also because he was probably the healthiest cub at the time.

But then again, we are left questioning if Tama and Tojo can be considered canon, or that whether Zira really is their biological mother, I have no clue. Now unless the maker of TLK make another movie or book, then all we can do guess and make fanfiction. Oh well, these are just some thoughts...

i have a theory mtoto is the father of kovu and vitani and the son of scar from dwala and zira is mother of kovu and vitani and like this we solve the problem kovu from descendant of scar and scar is not the father of kovu and scar adopted kovu as his son to conceal the secret of zira when she mated with his son but after simba rise the throne revealing the secret i wish that this theory solved the problem

If chumvi was kovu's dad, why did nala and simba hate kovu so much?

Just because tama has a hair tuft and tojo has blue eyes doesn't mean they are vitani's parents.
If you look closely, you can see vitani has spots or 'freckles'. Vitani also has more hair in her head tuft than tama's. It's more rough than Tamas. Where did she get the fluffy chin? If you compare all the three pics together, you can easily see they are very different. Vitani also has a more greyish coat when she grows up.Vitani has a more purplish eyes.

Same goes for Kovu. Compare the pictures.

Please, don't think i'm trying to be mean. I'm just saying my opinion.

My theory is:

Nuka - Zira + Scar

Vitani - Tama x Tojo, got her outsider nose form a grandparent.

Kovu - Chumvi x Random Outsider. He was abandoned by his mother when Chumvi died.

THAT IS JUST MY THEORY!!

You have to think about it: Vitani must be Zira's child, why would they adopt a female heir? Kovu and Nuka are both her kids (as stated in the movie) and it is up to fanfiction as to the father. Its quite simple really, not worth long posts.

I still say Nala and Vitani are related because she was probaly the daughter of Nala and Scar before Simba came and Nala couldnot take care of her at the time so... she gave her to Zira thats my theri. ;)

@ Felicia: WHAT?! NO! That would never happen!! Scar is not the one going mad - YOU ARE!
Personally, I agree with you on the Vitanis' parents...and the reason they took her in was maybe because they thought she was a boy. I think Kovu's parents were a lioness who was an Outsider and Chumvi, thus bearing kovu who was abandoned because of problems in the family.
Felicia, stop dirtying a kid's website, for crying out loud...

i think Vitani and Kovu had different parents and i think Nuka is Scar and Zira's only son and i think Scar got mad and rape Nala and they had a daughter named Kala but Nala gave her away to her friends Chumvi and Kula because Scar and Zira took their son Kovu from them and adopted him and Nala knew that Scar would wanted to kill Kala as for Vitani i think her parents are Tojo and Tama but Scar and Zira took her away from them and adopted her and forget about my other commets where i said that i think Leo is Nala and Mheetu's father but i really think that Mega is Nala and Mheetu's real father and Sarafina's mate and i think that Leo is Sarafina's annoying twin brother and i think Simba had a little sister named Shani who was born after her father died and her brother exiled thats what i think and it will be in my fanfiction if i made one

i spell twin wrong thats why i comment on here again

I don't have a thought or an assumption, because I have the answer.
These days, it's all about who you know. I'm really close friends with the director of animation for TLK 2: Simba's Pride, and I, too was curious of this bloodline confusion, so I asked her if she could get me on the phone with the head of movie and board director to ask him that very question.
"Are Nuka, Vitani, and Kovu siblings, and which ones belong to Scar?"
His answer: "No. Originally in pre-development we had planned for Nuka to be Scars only son but that would make him and Kiara cousins," (idk why that was the excuse but whatever works) "Nuka and Vitani are siblings, Kovu was adopted into their pride and so, none of them belong to Scar.

Don't argue with me about this topic because you like your theories or assumptions more, I could care less if you believe me or not because I know the truth.

weeeeeeell.... I see your logic and it's definitely not the first time I've seen this theory :) BUT
Where's the green eyes come from?
If Chumvi and Kula got together there's LOTS of features that aren't quite from them. But I suppose that's alright in a way 'cos it would make his scar- like features more "special" to Zira.
I tried theories about Chumvi and Tojo being Vitani and Kovu's parents but it never really worked without me making drastic changes I didn't want to make to my own storyline so...
It really just depends on how you look at it. Almost anything could work. ;) Fans often drift away from the idea of "It should be something Disney would actually do" but that's fun I think :D
Great article by the way! Quite intriguing!

i think zira went to the pridelands to look for trouble but instead she saw kovu sleeping with chumvi and she saw that kovu looked like scar so she snatched kovu away bringing him to the outlands then convinces him that she is her mother and scar is his father and chumvi scatched him away from them.....

thats what i think whats happend

Kovu and Vitani are half bother and sister. I don't know who Vitani's real dad is but Kovu's is Chumvi. They're both Zira's but the only cub her and Scar ever had was Nuka.

@Zara Actually it could, you see Kovu could have got jeans from his uncles ect. Example: my sister has strawberry blonde hair, but my parents have black hair and one has light blonde. But my aunt has red hair. So ya it's still possible for Kovu to receive traits like, a Outlander nose, and his eyes from relatives. ;)

I had the exact same theory for Vitanis parents! and the Chumvi+Kula theory works too but what about Kovu's eye colour? it doesnt work.
