* I doubt anyone from that distance would be able to clearly hear Scar's voice or even make out what words are being made, so it just comes back as noise. Then you could just write off the red lights as weird activity in the rocks out there.

* I think part way through Scar's reign of overhunting, the Pridelands just happened to be hit by a bad drought. If Mufasa were still king at the time, he might have had the presence of mind to implement rationing to preserve the vegetation and balance, but the selfish Scar wouldn't put in enough forethought which lead to the desolation.



** It's a legend, not something unique to the film, and according to the legend elephants go there to die. Many of those bones are far to big to be carried there.

* Also, the scene is simply [[RuleOfFunny funnier]] with Timon stopping Pumbaa saying the word than it was if Pumbaa simply said the word.

* I would assume it's to avoid a PG rating for rude humor. Doesn't make logical sense to me for the Rating Board to overlook blatant fart jokes just because the word fart is not used and farting is not shown, but they can and did for ''The Lion King'' and other movies, so this tactic works. That's what GettingCrapPastTheRadar is all about; implying things not too overtly so the Rating Board will overlook or ignore it.

Added DiffLines:

[[WMG: Why is it perfectly acceptable to fart, discuss farting, singing a lyric that rhymes with "farted" implying that you're about to call it by name, all "in front of the kids", but heaven forbid you should actually call farting by its name in presence of the same?]]
So in "Hakuna Matata", there's this whole verse about Pumbaa's gaseous reputation. It is, in fact, Timon who actually brings up the subject. He sings "he found his aroma lacked a certain appeal, he could clear the Savannah after every meal". We see animals fleeing from the scent. We hear about how this caused Pumbaa to suffer socially. We hear "and I got downhearted", and, since the song has a tendency to rhyme, you know that the word that's coming is going to rhyme, and you know what that rhyming word is that describes the smelly, socially off-putting emissions being discussed. All this is totally okay. But once Pumbaa gets to the point of calling the aforementioned off-putting smelly emissions by their name, suddenly it is not okay. HUH?

* Interestingly, while darker coat is more desirable trait for a male lion in RealLife, it also comes with an assortment of health problems if it gets too dark. Most likely Scar is suffering from the worst side-effects of his one positive biological trait, which is why healthier Mufasa gets the higher position.
