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!

  • Has no one considered the connection to Hamlet? I’m sure it was just meant to be a scene giving a nod to the story origin - and, being set in the animal kingdom, instead of using a human skull, another primate skull was used as MatPat pointed out

  • Also, the eye sockets face forwards, like a primate's. A lion skull's eye sockets face sideways.

  • Maybe the baboon skull was a hidden easter egg since in early drafts of the story, Scar was going to be king of the baboons.

  • Matpat's recap just made me realize that the Lion King has the same basic plot as Hamlet (except Simba is exiled and then finds out Scar killed his father when he gets back). I don't know what to do with this information.

  • Yeah my brother haaaates that theory because the basis of all the points are wrong. Hyenas will eat anything, lions very rarely eat each other, and that looks a lot more like a baboon skull than a lion skull.

  • 7:06 Ironic for MatPat to call this out considering he actually did this with his previous theories, so he doesn't get the privilege to call out and poke fun at behavior that he did for ten years.

  • The Hyena's didn't eat scar. Actaully they just killed him. Actually they just attacked him. Actually it was scar's shadow, that has been attacked by hyena's shadow. Don't interpret too much in what you see.

  • Isn't it just a reference to Hamlet, which the movie is based on? In Hamlet the "To be or not to be" monologue is famously partly told to a human skull, so it seems like they were just referencing that.

If anyone sees this, and agrees with me, could you please like this comment, or even comment this yourself, so there's a higher chance of this being seen. MatPat, or random commenter who reads this, thanks!

  • Wait... if you're telling me the skull is most likely a Baboon Skull. Did Rafiki have a partner? Or family. Perhaps Rafiki spoke against Scar becoming King, he seems like an important part of the royal system. Considering he help with the birth and the announcing of each Heir. So perhaps killed someone he cared for to keep him quiet, rather than killing him because he needs him to crown his own heir.
