** In the Spanish dub, most of the cast was this with the exceptions of Creator/SergioZamora (adult Simba), Marc Pociello (young Simba), Creator/MiguelAngelJenner (Pumbaa) and Eduard Doncos (Zazu).



** Creator/WhoopiGoldberg, normally associated with playing sympathetic, wise and/or funny characters and the {{Trope Namer|s}} for the WhoopiEpiphanySpeech, does the voice of a malevolent and thuggish hyena.

** Creator/WhoopiGoldberg, normally associated with playing sympathetic, wise and/or funny characters and In the {{Trope Namer|s}} for Spanish dub, Ricardo Solans is no stranger at voicing villains but his performance as Scar bears some resemblance of the WhoopiEpiphanySpeech, does the voice over-the-top ([[TropesAreNotBad not necessarily a bad thing]]) way he voiced Creator/DustinHoffman's [[Film/{{Hook}} Captain Hook]]. Also, this is one of a malevolent and thuggish hyena.Solans' very, very, ''very'' few animated roles.

** A director fell out due to conflicts with the creative team. The script needed much fine-tuning. And an earthquake hit California during the final months of production, forcing the animators to work at home.

** The singing voice for Adult Simba is Joseph Williams, better known as one of the (and still current) lead singers of the band ''Music/{{Toto}}'', whose SignatureSong is...wait for it...[[HilariousInHindsight "Africa"]]. Even better, a number of lyrics from the song are rather startlingly relevant to the plot of the film/Simba's emotional arc: "I stopped an old man along the way/Hoping to find some long forgotten words or ancient melodies/He turned to me as if to say, 'Hurry boy, it's waiting there for you'"; "I know that I must do what's right/As sure as Kilimanjaro rises like Olympus above the Serengeti/I seek to cure what's deep inside, frightened of this thing that I've become."

* EndOfAnAge: In a number of ways.
** It was the last Disney feature to be produced by the power duo of Jeff Katzenberg and Michael Eisner, who's power struggle for control of the company led to their seething hatred of one another and had finally gotten out of control when their mediator Frank Wells died in a helicopter crash. Katzenberg, who had felt as though his contributions to the films he produced were being taken for granted, left Disney following his lobbying for CEO to found Creator/DreamWorksAnimation.
** It was the [[Disney/LiloAndStitch second-to-last]] traditionally animated film to be hugely financially successful. The following year saw the release of the first fully computer-animated feature, ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory'', which blew the Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon's own ''Disney/{{Pocahontas}}'' out of the water (it didn't help that ''Pocahontas'' is the sole critical dud of the Renaissance, getting mixed reviews and a "Rotten" rating). The fact that it began Disney's string of [[ItsTheSameNowItSucks notoriously]] [[StrictlyFormula formulaic]] "be yourself" mega-musicals, which paled compared to flashy new [=CGI=] films, ended up souring the medium's reputation at the TurnOfTheMillennium, eventually leading to all Hollywood studios abandoning hand-drawn animation outright by the middle of the decade, and even Disney's last one was Disney/WinnieThePooh in 2011[[note]]As of the beginning of 2018, Disney still has no (public) plans for more hand-drawn films[[/note]].

* MagnumOpusDissonance: Most of the top animators picked working on ''Disney/{{Pocahontas}}'' instead of ''The Lion King'', as they thought that would become Disney's next critical darling/box office hit. Jeffrey Katzenberg, who was one of the main brains behind ''The Lion King'', was the biggest victim of this because this trope combo happened to him FOUR times (with ''Disney/TheBlackCauldron'' and ''Disney/TheGreatMouseDetective'' earliest, then ''Disney/OliverAndCompany'' and ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid'', and ''WesternAnimation/ThePrinceOfEgypt'' and ''WesternAnimation/{{Shrek}}'' at Creator/DreamWorksAnimation later.)
