Trivia

(at around 29 mins) During "Be Prepared," the hyenas' marching past Scar on the elevated rock was inspired by footage of Nazis marching by Adolf Hitler on a podium.


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

In one of the final scenes where Simba walks up Pride Rock to roar, it is raining. When we see Timon and Pumbaa briefly, they are dry while the other characters all have signs of being wet.


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.
