Theories in shambles
Since the creation of Roi Lion, the fans had time to create all sorts of theories, each crazier than the next. But some are crispier than others.
For example, one of them is about the big bad Scar. Surely you remember, he is the one who kills Mufasa, his own brother.
Besides, a rather cruel theory concerns him. Many fans speculate that Scar allegedly ate Mufasa after killing him.
Yes, hyenas do not eat lions in the savannah. Lions eat lions. Which therefore leaves the field open to Scar.
Moreover, an element comes to confirm this frightening theory. On his throne, Scar plays with a skull. Mufasa’s? Chilling!
Another theory concerns Mufasa this time around. According to some fans of Roi Lion, he would control time and weather after his death. Some clues leave doubt. For example, upon his death, the kingdom dries up very quickly.
Moreover, with each lie of Scar, the thunder descends, resulting in the end of the film a fight in the flames. Also, when Simba reclaims the throne, a torrential rain falls, saving the kingdom. Is this the work of Mufasa?
Finally, a theory explains that Zazu, faithful friend of Mufasa and Simba, would be a traitor. Being very attached to traditions, he would not have appreciated the rebellious character of Simba. He would therefore have made an alliance with Scar so as not to compromise the balance of the kingdom.
Either way, The Lion King is on Disney+. The opportunity to immerse yourself in this universe before watching le second opus. Disney wants to adapt it too. Case to follow!
