  • Hi guys!

    I'm a relatively new user here on the wiki and I have started making interviews with people related to the entertainment business. As such, I wanted to see if there were any available TLK VIPs that would like to make an interview with us. So I tried to contact Darrell Rooney, director of The Lion King II: Simba's Pride, and I succeeded. Mr. Rooney has said that he would love to make a 20-questions interview with us...

    So, let's do it! Please, if anyone has questions for Mr. Rooney, please post them here! I will be publishing the interview here as soon as possible ;)

    • That sounds like a neat idea! Some questions I would be interested to have answered:

      1. Could you elaborate more on Chaka, Kiara's brother? What was his role, and why was he cut?
      2. It's rumored that Simba was originally going to die. How was this going to happen, and why was this changed?

      Thanks. :)

    • Is it still possible to ask questions for this interview with Mr.Rooney?

    • Yeah! But as soon as possible, please!

    • All right! Here goes,

      3. I heard there were people who said that Zira is actually Scar's mate, but Nuka and Vitani weren't born from their union, they were born from Zira and an unknown lion before she mated with Scar. Is this true?

      4. Why Scar chose Kovu as his heir? Is there any particular reason or there weren't many suitable candidates for Scar to choose during his reign?

      5. It was mentioned that Zira was very close to Scar when he was alive. How long they had known each other?

      I think that's all. Thank you very much.

    • 1. Have you seen the The Lion Guard episode in which Kovu, Zira, Nuka, and Vitani are featured? If so, what did you think of their respective portrayals/designs/roles?

      2. Are the lionesses in Zira’s pride originally from Pride Rock, or did they join Zira after her family’s banishment? I feel like this issue is unclear in the film.

    • It's been a while, and there's still no reply yet about the result of the interview. Does Darrell Rooney hasn't answered yet or there's something else?

    • Not yet. He must be busy on something. It took me a time to secure this interview, but don't worry. It's okay

    • Alright. Thank you.

    • Hey guys! I still don't have the interview but Darrell Rooney has gave me an update. He has told me that for the current moment he hasn't been able to answer it due some work but has given me an update about a question.

      Regarding The Lion Guard, Mr. Rooney never saw the show, but he's happy that Nuka, Zira, Vitani and Kovu appeared on it, as he feels that if they were included, that means they are considered part of The Lion King universe ;)
