Trivia

After killing Mufasa, Scar tells Simba to "Run. Run away and never return." Then at the end of the film, when Scar seemingly pleads for mercy, Simba accepts but tells him, "Run. Run away, Scar, and never return."


Quotes

Scar: Life's not fair, is it? You see, I... well, I shall never be king. And you... shall never see the light of another day. Hmm-hmm-hmm, adieu.
Zazu: Didn't your mother ever tell you not to play with your food?


Goofs

When Mufasa pins the hyenas, he is facing the wall where Simba is. When the hyenas run away, they go straight ahead, yet are seen running away from Mufasa.


Crazy Credits

"In Remembrance of Frank Wells President of The Walt Disney Company from 1984-1994"


Alternate Versions

When the movie was released on DVD in October 2003, it offered two versions of the film: The "Special Edition" (the 2002 IMAX re-release), and the "Original Theatrical Release". The "Original Theatrical Release" is actually identical to the 2002 IMAX/"Special Edition" re-release, except that it opens with the memorial card to Frank Wells, following the Walt Disney Pictures logo. (this includes the pouncing lesson scene). All of the other edits that were made to the 2002 IMAX re-release (the cleaned-up animation, etc.) are also present in this version.
