Moved to "Beyond the Lion King" as this is not discussion specifically about the first film.

Really? You're "morbidly depressed" over this?

I'm sorry, I don't care if it sounds harsh, but all the people who keep saying they're "depressed" because TLK isn't real or TLG isn't living up to their expectations and so forth... either you need serious mental help or you don't know what real problems that cause "morbid" depression are.

If you like TLK and don't like that it isn't real or don't like the direction they're taking it in, there's a simple solution:
Watch the part you do like, and read/write fics and make art, etc. to explore the universe through fanwork.

I think I was due for the hard talk XD. Like I said in the post I did not. Proof. Read. What I had wrote. Did you miss that? But I guess morbid is a dark word on it's own, and I am sorry to break it to you but I don't get 'depressed' all the often anymore. Yes morbid is a dark word, but if you wish I can tell you when I was actually morbidly depressed? I didn't think so...

The whole morbid side was more of a descriptive term, how I do hope you don't take it so harshly Dixon. I think only some of us can speak for ourselves when it comes to being morbidly depressed. And I will admit I was very sad while writing this but I was not morbidly depressed.

P.S. To avoid anything more unnecessary I will remove that word.

Happy now. (-.-)

I feel ya; it sucks to see this awesome, fun-looking world and be unable to be a part of it. But TLK isn't necessarily over. We have TLG, for one, and while it isn't quite as quality as the full-length films are, it's still new TLK stuff and pretty fun. And if TLG doesn't do it for you, well who knows. Disney could completely surprise us someday with a new TLK film. Goodness knows I've dreamt about a fourth TLK film coming out quite a few times XD It's unlikely, sure, but we don't know the future.

In the meantime, just try to enjoy your life. Do things that are enjoyable to you. Go for walks, discover new music, whatever makes you happy. If you're musically inclined, you could consider making a career out of TLK. Perhaps you'd be able to play a character in a production of the play, or pick up an instrument and join the orchestra. If you're not able to do those things, I'd recommend at least trying to see the play if possible. That's certainly a goal you'd enjoy working towards :)

You can always talk to me when you get depressed, too. I've been there many times myself.

Well... no, it isn't real. But the people who wrote the script, composed the music, and animated the characters are real. Isn't it amazing what people are capable of?


I'd add to this the source material, the savannah. Certainly there aren't kingdoms with just lion kings and whatnot but boiled down the struggles encountered in TLK are fairly real, what's less real is how few casualties came as a result of these conflicts. Pretty much all the time there's a tragedy as bad ( and likely worse ) going on in the savannah, and not just to prey animals, the drama in that is a pretty obvious point of inspiration in my view.

A more striped version of a heroic life of drama and tragedy can be found here.
