What's on your mind?
So, I was browsing the wiki, and clicking on stuff, when I saw one about Nala's father. It says that it's an unknown male lion, and that it's even mentioned in the Lion Guard. So I went back and watched episode 11 of the first season. The lion mentioned IS her father, but Rafiki also says that it's "Kion's grandfather, when he was a cub", so in short it's Mufasa.
Ahadi is Mufasa and Scar's father, but was he a black maned lion, or a regular colored lion? Many pictures show him both ways.
Is there any discord server connected to The Lion King fandom?

Does anyone know where I can find a full version of the The Lion Sleeps Tonight? Everywhere that I've looked, it ends with Nala's roar and 'ahh'.
Today, the only actor to appear in both the classic Lion King and its remake, and in the same role, too, turns 89.
What if Speedy the Snail joined The Lion Guard as a seventh member? Just a theory.
What if The Lion Guard featured cartoon sound effects? What would happen if The Lion Guard featured a narrator? Just a theory.

Why he not canon in movie and the books arent canon i think
Why we never see her in books just mufasa ahadi and taka or scar
Kiara did not have time to save Simba from assassination of Zira and Simba drowned with Zira,which would be then.After death Simba and Zira,pridelanders publicly apologized to Kovu.Kovu and Kiara two months later,the king of Badi is born,and Kovu and Kiara declare themselves prince and princess regents.Four months later,Kion arrives with a lion guard and Makini,Kion healing your scar sees the little king Badi in the priderock.Kiara i am glad to him and tells him about the first hunt,the death of Simba and Zira,the expulsion of Kovu and the abolition of exile as punishment by decree of King Badi.Vitani gave birth to daughter Solly from an elephant and Zuri and Tiifu were born from Nuki-Leo and Rayla.Three days after Battle of Lion Guards,Kion marries Rani.King Badi and Kovu and Kiara and Pridelanders rooting for him.And in heaven,spirits looked after them:Simba,Zira,Janna,Nuka,Scar,Askari,Mufasa,Ushari,Aminifu,Sahasi,Ananda.
I am extremely mad that the lion king II isnt considered canon and also that the cub at the end of the 2019 remake has been confirmed to be male.
I think Jason derulo will be good for Kovu and Eddie Murphy as Nuka
Before Beyoncé, I fan casted Ginnifer Goodwin as Nala in the remake. She seemed like a perfect candidate for the role. Although I still it would’ve been her, Beyoncé did a good job.
It would be a good idea for Disney to make two new Lion King movies: one about Kiara and Kovu's cub and one about Kion and Rani's cub.
Characters that should appear in the movie about Kiara's cub
Obviously Kiara's cub, but also Kovu, Kiara, Simba, Nala, Timon and Pumbaa, Rafiki, Zazu, and Mufasa as far as I know.
Characters who should appear in the movie about Kion's cub
Obviously Kion's cub, but also Kion, Rani, Janna, Baliyo, Surak, Nirmala, Bunga, Fuli, Beshte, Ono, Anga, and Makini.
Anyone have an idea about who the villains should be and what animal they should be in either Lion King film?
