Film Theory: Did Scar EAT Mufasa? (The Lion King)

Kvikmyndir og teiknimyndir

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!

    In the Broadway adaptation of TLK, there is a large feline skull at the front of the pile of bones on which Scar reclines in the opener to the second act, “The Madness of King Scar”. I think having that skull there is a callback to the scene in the movie where Scar plays with a skull as Zazu entertains him with the coconut song.

    I was right on first glance I thought it looked like a baboon skull the whole time. I have taken a biological anthropology course and lab before so I was taught quite a bit about primate and ancestral hominid skulls/fossils. Plus I know felines and knew the length of jaw was too long and not the right teeth.
