worst criticisms towards the lion king.

What are some criticisms people use towards tlk1 that you think are bogus, stupid, or just plain illogical?

the three that really rub me the wrong way are


-Simba and Nala are brother and sister!

Most importantly, Disney doesn’t do incest. Secondly, Simba never even implies that Nala is his sister and vice versa. Third, Mufasa never implies that she’s his daughter.

My guess is that the writers didn’t think giving Nala a father was important to the story.

-Real lions don’t do this or that!

This isn’t a national geographic documentary. It’s a disney movie with singing African animals. It’s not going to be 100 percent true to nature.

-The Lion King ripped off Kimba/Jungle Emporer Leo.

A big thing against this is that no one who worked on the movie has admitted that they took ideas from Tezukas anime. Even the people no longer affiliated with Disney. Someone like Jeffery Katzenberg, who was chairman of the walt disney company and left the company on bad terms, who went to create Dreamworks and produced Shrek as a ‘take that!’ towards Disney.... he would have nothing to lose admitting that Disney copied Kimba. He hasn’t afaik.

Most of these ‘plagarism’ accusations are based off ideas almost anyone can think of. Some of the accusations are based off a kimba movie that came out 3 years after tlk. Some of the accusations are based off things Bambi did.

Well the everlasting theories that either Nala or Kovu are Scar's kids. If it was like that, they both would be Simba's cousins. Ehhhh nooo thank you.

Kopa's existence, how Disney has "forgotten" and "dropped him off." It has stated several times that those books Kopa appears in are not made by Disney, instead they are fan work and the company had no idea of Kopa, so claiming that Kion replaced him makes no sense. He is created by the company so officially Simba has only two kids, he and Kiara.

This is not really a complain, but in those same books where Kopa appears, the story how Scar got his wound is explained. The buffalo, yes. But the director of TLK said in the Honest Trailers interview something like "I always believe Mufasa did it. They were playing as cubs, but Mufasa took it too far." So perhaps that's the official theory. I dunno.

Fans hating on TLG when I think its better then nothing so embrace whit what we get.

I already have an issues with fan criticizing the new TLK with how the character all look the same and cant be I identified and it so dull and dark, this real raw nature.

Again I say this to those who criticize the new Genie in the new Aladdin, you arnt the maker of these films you arnt Disney so complaining about it wont do anything to get what you wish or want, when you given lemons you make lemonade.

I despise how people online claim The Lion King plagiarized Jungle Emperor Leo (also known as Kimba the White Lion). It's annoying and to me, it's insulting to the production crew who worked on Lion King. To claim that their work is plagiarized is to imply that they have no creativity of their own. While there are similar characters and imagery, the storylines are completely different. As Elton mentioned, some of the clips that are used to draw similarities are from the 1997 film.

Yesterday, I saw a video talking about how traditional newspapers and media are dying, at least here in the US, because they are losing audiences to newer, less politically stupid sources.

This morning I was pointed towards this here Washington Post piece hating on The Lion King because it is trying to justify the US being a fascist dictatorship.

And how Pride Rock is an example of Trump Tower's dominance over everyone else.

And other such nonsense. I dunno, my brain was starting to hurt just reading this nonsense.

This article has got to be a false flag making fun of how SJWs think. Surely it cannot be a serious piece! Can it? I mean, The Onion is more believable...

Sigh, insert Luke Skywalker "that's not true!" meme here.
