Film Theory: Did Scar EAT Mufasa? (The Lion King)

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!

    Figure it out if the hyenas were trying to go and catch and catch Simba then that means that they couldn't eat it what if scar drag and Fox's body all into the spot where he's head that mufas's wife could eat with him what if he just ate it before mufasa's wife wife got it to eat it first and then what happened was he said the hyenas don't leave leftovers so then that means that they ate the rest of the body

    Disney probably didn't even think that deep into the scene as they wanted to just put in a reference of the 'Poor Yoric' scene from Hamlet, what the Lion King is based on. :> -Though that is Hamlet, aka Simba, but I think this is just an Easter egg-

    I have a theory, about fnaf. First of all, if the business was doing awesome, they could’ve had higher security, like, more power, lock on doors, a phone that u can call with and not just listen to. If u go into the in-app purchases u can get, unlimited power, and a radar map (I would know because I have it). U can get this in the 1, 2, and 6, game. The reason the Sister Location and fnaf 3 and 4 don’t have it is because, fnaf 4 is in a hospital and ur a kid. Fnaf 3 doesn’t have it because it’s not open. Sister Location doesn’t have it because ur wandering around the place and u can easily reboot the power, that u learn in night 2. Over all my theory is that in fnaf 1, 2, and 6, u are the owner, it may have a few holes but that is my theory.

    Any chance you found out what animal skull Mufasa was holding then? If not a baboon. I definitely agree that the flat teeth means it's probably from a herbivore or omnivore; definitely not a carnivore.

  66. Matthew Fernandez

    Matthew Fernandez5 days ago

    So much of your debunking of the theory is based on the scientific evidence of whether Mufasa would have been literally eaten by Scar in the real world as opposed to whether the writers and animators of the film subtlety hint to the possibility of Scar’s cannibalism. I think you missed some of the point.
