Never miss a Film Theory! ►
Last time I talked about the Lion King, we were seeing just how big the body count was for this beloved Disney movie and sayong Scar was the rightful king. WEll, we are leaning into that even HARDER this time! Today, I want to talk about the sibling rivalry to end all sibling rivalries - Scar and Mufasa. Theorists, lions are a very, VERY interesting animal. I think that Scar ATE Mufasa after the stampede. You'll have to watch to find out WHY!

  • 7:06 Ironic for MatPat to call this out considering he actually did this with his previous theories, so he doesn't get the privilege to call out and poke fun at behavior that he did for ten years.

  • The Hyena's didn't eat scar. Actaully they just killed him. Actually they just attacked him. Actually it was scar's shadow, that has been attacked by hyena's shadow. Don't interpret too much in what you see.

  • Isn't it just a reference to Hamlet, which the movie is based on? In Hamlet the "To be or not to be" monologue is famously partly told to a human skull, so it seems like they were just referencing that.

  • I'd love if you could do a theory on No County for Old Men. I'm sure this comment will get lost with the others though. If anyone sees this, and agrees with me, could you please like this comment, or even comment this yourself, so there's a higher chance of this being seen. MatPat, or random commenter who reads this, thanks!

  • Wait... if you're telling me the skull is most likely a Baboon Skull. Did Rafiki have a partner? Or family. Perhaps Rafiki spoke against Scar becoming King, he seems like an important part of the royal system. Considering he help with the birth and the announcing of each Heir. So perhaps killed someone he cared for to keep him quiet, rather than killing him because he needs him to crown his own heir.

  • 10:56 Actually, its herbivores that have sharp teeth. Carnivore teeth can be sharp but as you said, they terr their food apart. Herbivores need to grind their food because plants are harder to digest. Some herbivores have flat teeth but if you actually look at a lot of herbivore teeth like antelope, horses, and even rhinos, their teeth have lots of sharp edges on them for steering the plants they eat. So it's actually Herbivores with sharp teeth. You can even feel it in your own mouth, your plant grinding molars are sharper than your meat tearing canines.
