*** It's telling that Jeremy Irons did this line so many times he eventually blew out his vocal chords. They wanted it to be ''that'' scary.

*** And just in case the symbolism wasn't obvious, there's a full thirty seconds set in the [[ANaziByAnyOtherName infamous "cathedral of light."]] Complete with a full hyena parade including goosestepping.

** Just before the second verse of the song begins, there's a point in the soundtrack which at first sounds like the strings section -- but quickly you realise it's the hyenas laughing: ''hehehehehehe.''

*** Don't forget his helpless scream as he falls to his death...replaced with the scream of Simba as he watches his dad, who he just had a scene showing their closeness, fall to his death...

** The film uses a discretion shot for Mufasa's death (he disappears in the dust as he falls, and we only see his body after the fact). In the companion book The Art of The Lion King, there's a piece of concept art that actually shows Mufasa getting trampled. Every bit as horrific as it sounds.

** The film uses a discretion shot for Mufasa's death (he disappears in the dust (the shot darkens as he falls, falls and we only see his body after the fact). In cuts away just before impact), but the companion book The ''The Art of The Lion King, there's King'', includes a piece of concept art that actually shows Mufasa getting being trampled.

* The part where Scar strikes Simba's mother Sarabi when she mentions Mufasa was particularly unsettling.

* At the end of the Broadway version's trailer on the "''The Lion King II: Simba's Pride"'' 1998 VHS, there is a black outlined drawing of Simba that is sure to give kids nightmares (Trust me, it almost gave ME nightmares when I was a kid!). It also doesn't help that there is a male announcer shouting, '''"WINNER OF SIX 1998 TONY AWARDS, INCLUDING BEST NEW MUSICAL: "''THE LION KING"''! VISIT DISNEY.COM FOR MORE INFORMATION!"''' The first part of the trailer does a really good job of persuading you to see the musical, ''but the ending is scary as hell and comes out of left field!'' The musical was great, but the scary end of the trailer doesn't do it justice. What's weird is that the drawing of Simba is nightmarish here, but not in the first movie. Maybe it's the curvy eyes that don't look like eyes at all, or again, the black outline, and the INCREDIBLY LOUD announcer.

* The scene of Scar leaping at Simba [shown above], teeth bared and claws out with fire burning behind him. He looks like Satan leaping out of Hell. Try seeing that in 3D.
