An archetype is a model device commonly used in media, and there are quite a few of them present in The Lion King. Sometimes archetypes are used to allow the viewer to make a better connection with a character au narrative, sometimes they are used to symbolise something important, and sometimes they are used simply because it makes sense to do so. Here are just some of the archetypes used in the 1994 animated movie...

Reluctant Hero
This is, of course, Simba. The Reluctant Hero is a common archetype used in a lot of movies, and is normally the protagonist. Simba is the good guy and the rightful...

After all this waiting I finally saw The Lion King 2019 remake last night and I have to say while it wasn't as amazing au breathtaking as the original, it was still a good remake. For this review I will focus on three things: The parts of this movie I loved, what I was neutral on, and what I hated.

Warning: Spoilers ahead!

Loved:

The opening was done shot for shot to bring back nostalgia for the mashabiki and honestly I did not hate that. The opening chant was even exactly the same! mashabiki grew up with the opening from The Lion King, making memes, imba along, and even hearing the opening song just...

Princess Kairia, was engrossed as she listened to her grandfather the former king Simba, as he told her a story of one of the adventures he had with her grandmother when he was a cub.
"There Grandma and I were cornered kwa the hyenas they were moving in for the kill. I did the only thing I could think of, I roared at them." Kairia looked at her grandfather impressed and asked him
"Wow Grandpa did that scare them off?"
Simba laughed heartily at his granddaughter and alisema "No, Dear One I'm afraid it didn't."
Kairia asked confused "But Grandpa if it didn't work then how did wewe and Grandma get away?"...

Ok, when I found out that Kiara is a cub in The Lion Guard I didn't like it. Don't get me wrong. I am trying to make myself get used to the idea that Kion is a cub, not to mention the same age as Kiara according to what Disney just said. Yes, he is the sekunde born but maybe he was from the same litter (making kiara and kion twins). So yeah.. he was born after Kiara and as it turns out he is the same age as her (not a big shabiki of that either).
By the way yes he is the sekunde born because -for the last time- there is no Kopa! :P
However! It makes scenes from the sekunde movie not make any sense!...

Let's start with the fact how Kopa was never and is not canon nor a movie character at all: link.

But some people think that the zaidi believers Kopa has the zaidi real he'll become. As in that if many enough believe in him as canon regardless of Disney saying he's not, Disney would make him into what those believers want him to be.

Well, Kopa believers: If I were you, I wouldn't hold my breath. And here's why.

The vitabu and Kopa are outsider written and look what happened: Disney approved him for profit and childrens' entertainment in vitabu known only in USA and did not even refer to him in the...

These are of course only my own, personal TOP10 reasons for loving it. :)

1. It's very unlike your standard Disney cartoon. It's dark and psychologically deep and complex story and doesn't sugar kanzu, koti anything. Even the dead stay dead. Apart from Mufasa's ghost coming to guide Simba, but he was still dead! And unlike usually, the "resurrection" actually works for the story instead of being there to make kids happy. I mean, without the ghost scene the story would've been very different.

2. It bases on Shakespeare's 'Hamlet' mixed with a bit of the story of Moses from the Bible. That makes the story...

 Kopa and Simba
Kopa and Simba
I wrote the whole thing myself and i am hoping this is gonna be good.


*The Lion King 3: The return of kopa*


*Part 1*

The sky was reddish pink, it was turning morning the wanyama lined up for Kiara and Kovu's official wedding at the Pride Lands, Vitani stood up looking proud at her brother. Wind blew againts her brownish-gold fur, manyoya and through her bangs as she watched her brother and the other lionesses roar. Kiara and Kovu stepped up the pride rock and roared as the wanyama went wild. Kiara and Kovu hugged each other as Nala and Simba roared with them.


Later on, Simba and Nala were walking along...

1. She does not listen to her parents when they tell her that the outlands are dangerous and that she should never go there, however she gets angry when her father doesn't trust her. How will he trust wewe if wewe keep being disobedient?

2. The fact that she knows nothing about self defence and sucks as a fighter (I assume) doesn't stop her from going to the outlands. (I'm talking about the teenager Kiara who "can" think logically). Why would wewe go to a dangerous place when wewe can't protect yourself in the first place? Pretty much everyone can outmatch her.

3. After the ambush, when Simba was...

Surprisingly few have heard about Fluffy and many of those who have, are confused with all the vitabu and the sequel and stuff. Here's the story digging into facts of the timeline and looks, as well as the official words kwa the film's makers.

I originally created this makala to The Lion King Wiki as SuperBabySimba, but as Wikis can be edited kwa anyone who is confused and prefers daydreams over facts, I chose to post this original version here to help those who are interested. :)

I mean no affiance to those who upendo the lion king 2. And please don't leave any nasty comments, thank you.

First off, the animation.
The uhuishaji in the lion king 2 is totally horrible. Simba is darker (And somewhere in the movie his eyes are actualy blue!) , Nala is to bright and her eyes are to blue, Timon is dark and Pumba is dark and looks disgusting. The only charicters that looked like they did in the first movie were Scar and Mufasa. The wildebeests in the nightmare scene looked like wolves! I actually think that that the animators took zaidi time and work in drawing the new characters...

I've been wanting to do this for a long time, so here I go. My little character psychology analysis on the three most crucial characters for the official story. In a way this results in Simba born -> Scar the bad guy -> Simba the bad guy -> Zira the bad guy -> the being bad ends with Simba growing into his father's son.

SCAR:
Nothing official is known about his past, but we can assume something made him want to be the king perhaps zaidi than his brother ever did. I personally like to think it was not any remarkable amount of neglect kwa their father, but just Scar's desire for freedom...

I think everyone who has seen "The Lion King" and "The Lion King 2: Simba's Pride" sinema can agree that "The Lion Guard" doesn't do
a very good job with fitting in there. I have only seen all of "The Return of the Roar" and several clips from some other episodes. But that's enough to conclude that this TV onyesha fails miserably as a Lion King series. I'm sure the majority of my fellow Millenials from this fanbase agree with me, but I know there are Lion King mashabiki who nonetheless enjoy and upendo this new series. mashabiki who don't think it sucks. Good for you, guys, if wewe can find something to enjoy...

Kopa got up and shook his body to life. He bounced over to his mum, Nala, and pressed his paw up against her face in an attempt to awaken her. Her eyes fluttered open and she mumbled something under her breath.
"Mum, can I go out to play?" Kopa put on a cheesy grin,"Pu-leeaasee?"
"Your just like your father"
"So is that a yes?"
"Go ahead, but be careful, because if your anything like your father, I'm sure you'll get yourself into lots of mischief!"
Kopa bounded out of the cave opening and strait down into the grassy Savannah. As he was running through the nyasi he saw a big rock which reminded...

So, here is my comparison on both the animated version and its live-action reboot. Ready?

The Story

While the majority of the story is the same, there are a couple of changes in the story, like we get to see zaidi of Scar, Sarabi and Nala shortly after Simba was exiled and Mufasa's death. (Tied)

The Characters

One thing that I am very impressed is that both Nala and Sarabi have zaidi character developments in this reboot. I am very happy for her independence and bravery throughout the entire film. (2019 Version)
Scar on the other hand, is very much like King Stefan from Maleficent despite that...

Pride Rock appeared menacing in the dark of midnight, black clouds circling the structure. The air stood completely still, along with the tall grass. Then, in the blink of an eye, it all changed. Cristal drops of rain turned to giant diamonds, shattering on the savannah ground. The still air turned into frightening winds, blowing away branches from trees. The breath-taking silence was broken kwa a roar of pain.

In the pango of Pride Rock, all crowded a dark brown lioness. She was breathing heavily,her black-rimmed ears pinned sharply back. She dug her claws into the ground, gasping it tightly.

I just stumbled over the seemingly maarufu interpretation that Mufasa's ghost was only in Simba's mind and that's why he didn't tell the truth about how he died. I was like 'Whaaaat?!' That never crossed my mind, in all these 15 years.

I guess it is kinda left up to the viewers interpretation in the film but Mufasa truly appearing to guide his son, fits the theme of the story much better than just Simba's imagination.

Rafiki had summoned him. wewe know Rafiki was able to do weird stuff, such as seeing that Simba is alive and where to find him, kwa doing something to the dust in the wind that had...

 Kiara and Fluffy blend as one cub
Kiara and Fluffy blend as one cub
Many annoying maoni from mashabiki who believe Kopa is Fluffy which isn't true.

Here are 10 different maoni from them from Youtube:

1. "that can't be Kiara, in these sinema the males are yellow and the females are beige-colored, and that baby is yellow."

2. "that's there first child Kopa....he is a boy and Kiara's older brother."

3. "ok at the end it is not Kiara it is Kopa before the making of the lion king 2 they changed it 2 Kiara instead of being it Kopa =3."

4. "I am not a shabiki of lion king, but still kopa is true!"

5. "the cub is not Kiara. It's supposed to be Simba's and Nala's son,...

Queen of the Jungle

Chapter 1 – The Huntress

    For decades, the topic of Lion vs. Tiger has been highly debated, with people taking one side au being neutral. People have considered them to be natural rivals. A jungle in an unspecified location, in the uhuishaji world, was about to test that theory…

    “Mother. Why have wewe brought me here to this jungle?” asked Kiara, as her and Nala entered the jungle. “I’ve told wewe several times, Kiara.” Nala replied, “I’ve brought wewe here to improve your hunting skills. A jungle is the perfect...

hujambo guys, this past summer, I saw the remake with afew of my friends, and, I have some good and BAD reviews. Before we get started, if wewe haven't seen the remake yet, please don't read this makala as I'm about to give some potential spoilers. Now, let's get started:

The characters: I thought the characters were great and the fact that James Earl Jones reprised HIS role as Mufasa was an EPIC plus for me! I also thought Beyoncé was great as Nala, and I thought Seth Rogen did a pretty spot-on Pumbaa. I will admit-James Earl Jones sounded like he's aged, but if wewe think about it, he has. The...
