Simba the White Lion?

Postby Panda-chan » August 15th, 2008, 4:53 pm

So who thinks The Lion King is a remake of Kimba the White Lion? *raises hand*
I used to think it was just a rumor till I found this: http://www.kimbawlion.com/rant2.htm

Well, I'm personally... glad that The Lion King didn't include the human/animal relationship thing. It would have completely ruined the appeal of The Lion King, IMO.

I used to think Tezuka was just over-reacting about this (I still do, somewhat, just because I love TLK so much more than Kimba), but after reading the Kimba/Simba articles, I started to think that maybe Disney was somewhat inspired by Kimba when making TLK. But that doesn't even bother me... The Lion King is so much more awesome, particularly in the animation department.

The story I read shed a good light on this whole thing ending with Tezuka saying he was flattered that Disney's TLK was inspired by him. That's just the story I read somewhere...

Yeah, that's what ended the idea of a lawsuit, when Tezuka said he was flattered that Disney was inspired by the series. Right now, I'm so confused I don't even know what to think.... :headache:

Theres always two sides to a story...if not more....

Osamu Tezuka died in 1989, I think it was his wife that put off the charges saying that he would have been honored that an American animation company was inspired by his works.

Heres a little more on this debate from a somewhat neutral source...

Good idea. *thumbs up*

I watched a bit of Kimba on YouTube and I could spot at least a billion similarities. Could it be pure coincidence? :o It looks like we'll never know for sure............
