    • It’s literally 90% scene for scene the same as the Japanese animated film Kimba which was created in 1965; almost 30 years before Simba. Disney straight up plagiarized that movie but advertised it as an original work. There’s a short documentary on it. FYI

    • Lion King is stolen from Hamlet and Hamlet is stolen from ancient Egyptian mythology. Osiris is Mufasa, Set is Scar, and Horus is Simba. Osiris is Horus’ dad and Set’s brother, so the family members are the same and everything

    • Kimba first episode was aired in 1965 but the movie adaption was produced in 1997 just a few years after The Lion King movie. But the Kimba series for whoever actually watched it can tell that The lion king was an actual ripoff of Kimba. Plus Kimba had a better storyline imo

    • The whole controversy behind the whole "stealing" thing was that the animators of lion king originally thought that they were redoing kimba however the writers were inspired by the movie during a trip to Africa which is why the lions are one set class of lions and not multiple variants.
