Then how did you see the look in Mufasa's eyes?

Sarabi is an adult lioness. She is the mate of Mufasa, with whom she has a son, Simba.

Sarabi is the queen of the Pride Lands. After Scar becomes king, she assumes command of the lionesses, despite his efforts to win them over. She remains loyal to Mufasa's memory until the return of her son, Simba, whom she joins in battle against Scar and his hyena minions. The pride is victorious, and Sarabi welcomes her son as the new king.



When Sarabi was young, Mufasa and Scar fell in love with her. However, Sarabi chose Mufasa over Scar, much to the latter's chagrin, who, aside from being turned down by Sarabi, was also jealous of his older brother's position as the king of the Pride Lands.

The Lion King

Sarabi nuzzles her mate, Mufasa, at Simba's presentation

At Pride Rock, Sarabi and her mate Mufasa present their newborn son, Simba, to their subjects.

Months pass, with Simba growing into a lively cub. One day, Simba approaches Sarabi and the other lionesses to ask his friend, Nala, to play. Sarabi gives him a bath and instructs him to bring Zazu with him.

After Mufasa’s death, Sarabi grieves the loss of her mate and the supposed loss of her son. Scar takes the throne and allows the hyenas to turn the kingdom into a wasteland.

Years later, Nala encourages Sarabi to lead the pride out of the Pride Lands, but Sarabi refuses, as it is their home. Scar calls her to have an audience with him and reminds her of how she chose Mufasa over him to be her mate. Scar then offers Sarabi a place as his queen, stating that the other lionesses won't accept him as king out of respect for her. She refuses, and Scar punishes her by allowing the hyenas to eat before the lionesses.


Sarabi under the reign of Scar

Later, Scar confronts her again and demands that she be his queen. When she rejects him again by comparing him to Mufasa, he attacks her, only to be fended off by a full-grown Simba.

Scar accuses Simba of having killed Mufasa, to which Sarabi reacts with horror. However, she soon realizes Scar’s lie and attacks with the rest of the pride. The lionesses achieve victory over the hyenas.

After the battle, Sarabi nuzzles her son and watches him become the king of the Pride Lands.
