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!

fun fact: tigers have a stronger bite than lions and HYENAS have a even stronger bite than tigers and lions although they would still lose a fight between a tiger or a lion because well..... I don't know, that's just how nature works I guess?

Even if it is Mufasa's skull there... why does it mean someone ate him?

Oh boy you're wrong Lions actually eat about a hundred and fifty pounds of meat daily so what you're done showing your lack of intelligence and research that has anything that even resembles remote accuracy backing it I'll see you later also if you're wondering where the punctuation is it would be wasted on someone as stupid as you Chow

I was right on first glance I thought it looked like a baboon skull the whole time. I have taken a biological anthropology course and lab before so I was taught quite a bit about primate and ancestral hominid skulls/fossils. Plus I know felines and knew the length of jaw was too long and not the right teeth.

The skull also looks like mandrill's, and that would be Rafiki. Maybe Scar ate Rafiki's family and everyone hates him for that.

Has no one considered the connection to Hamlet? I’m sure it was just meant to be a scene giving a nod to the story origin - and, being set in the animal kingdom, instead of using a human skull, another primate skull was used as MatPat pointed out

Also, the eye sockets face forwards, like a primate's. A lion skull's eye sockets face sideways.

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!
