The Lion Guard

"Paintings and Predictions"

The Lion Guard saves Nala's father from a fall

When Bunga steals Rafiki's staff, he stumbles upon paintings of Nala's father as a cub and mistakes him for his grandson, Kion. Bunga touches the paintings with Rafiki's staff, bringing them to life, and watches in horror as Nala's father falls from a tree. Frightened, Bunga proceeds to protect Kion from every tree they encounter, terrified that Rafiki's paintings predict the future.

Later, Rafiki reveals that the painting in fact depicts Nala's father. He explains that Nala's father, when a cub, had fallen from a tree branch and been saved by the Lion Guard of his day.

"Cave of Secrets"

The painting of Nala's father appears during the "Wisdom on the Walls" sequence.
