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!

Maybe the baboon skull was a hidden easter egg since in early drafts of the story, Scar was going to be king of the baboons.

Matpat's recap just made me realize that the Lion King has the same basic plot as Hamlet (except Simba is exiled and then finds out Scar killed his father when he gets back). I don't know what to do with this information.

Yeah my brother haaaates that theory because the basis of all the points are wrong. Hyenas will eat anything, lions very rarely eat each other, and that looks a lot more like a baboon skull than a lion skull.

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.

9:55 12,000 or so years ago, a *American lion* walked this planet. Archeologists found fossilized bones, claw marks in caves, and paleoindian drawings of them.

There’s a literal documentary on animal planet where a male lion they’re following dies of starvation and the narrators fill the audience in that the hyenas were going to eat his body. I literally just watched that a few weeks ago

gotta be honest i love making tiktoks, and very much enjoy fan thoeries. i do everything to make them accurate, but tiktok (and youtube for that matter) doesnt promote accuracy unfortunately. but i would still rather make better fact based videos rather than go for just the views. p.s. i still think the among us characters are not human lol
