the difference between the EU and the lion king is that tlk was always a disney property, The Six New Adventures (based on what I know about it) is hardly as expansive or great as the EU, and it was decided not to be canon fairly early on.

That and random fanfiction for the franchise never was and never will be canon.
Why do we fall? So that we can learn to pick ourselves back up again.

As others have stated, the general consensus has always been that Uru was Mohatu's daughter. But according to canon (last I checked, anyway), none of these characters really exist to begin with. At best you could consider them placeholders, like "Fluffy" was before Kopa.

So I am curious about this topic in this way, for those who have an opinion that is different than mine:

Since it it perfectly reasonable to say that Six New Adventures is not canon, what replaces the information provided in these books? As far as I am aware, they are the only source of Disney owned material that ever mentioned lions from before Scar and Mufasa by name, so is that information simply ignored?

As far as I'm concerned, Disney has never told an official backstory of Mufasa and Scar's backstory that fully explained Scar's turn to evil and who their parents are. The Lion Guard gives some detail into their past, although I have my disagreements with it. Just last year, Rob Minkoff, co-director of the first film, told Honest Trailers that Scar was likely a "mean nickname" and he received his facial scar from Mufasa during a playful fight. While it's not canon, it does tie into the fact that facial scars like Kovu's come from lion claws.

Since all we know of Mohatu comes from Disney's Read along book The Brightest Star. Despite it's semi-canon status I think it just has to be taken as it is.

When Mohatu passes away it says The Animals felt lost without their King. It made no mention of an heir to The Throne or that Mohatu even had a Queen. The Animals were uneasy until Mohatu's Starr appeared in the sky. For that reason I believe that Uru is Mohatu's Daughter and unfortunately Mohatu either did not feel that A Lioness could rule The Pride Lands or he simply forgot to decree that Uru would become Queen Regnant upon his death.

Uru's Queenship may not have been officially recognized until she took Ahadi as her mate thus giving The Pride Lands A King.

Ahadi may then have passed the law that A Lioness can rule The Pride Lands as Queen or Simba may have been the one to instate that law.
