* CutSong: There are quite a few. A song for Mufasa to sing called "To Be King", a song for Sarabi titled "The Lion In The Moon", a reprise of "Be Prepared" and "Warthog Rhapsody", which was the original Hakuna Matata and was reworked for the midquel. Additionally, a "work in progress" trailer that was attached to the beginning of Disney's ''Disney/TheFoxAndTheHound'' ''WaltDisneyHomeVideo/WaltDisneyClassics'' video had a snippet of a different version of "Can You Feel The Love Tonight".

** Warthog Rhapsody made it into the musical, as did the best known cut song, "Morning Report", a song which was also restored to the later DVD releases. "The Madness of King Scar" in the musical is based off of a cut song/scene in the film.

* ScrewedByTheLawyers: A ''Lion King'' coloring book from 1996 got plagiarized and produced as a ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda'' predecessor in 2011 in an attempt to defraud Katzenberg's other studio and ''Panda'' copyright holder [=DreamWorks=] Animation; when they found the original book, it sunk that attempt and got the person behind it [[http://deadline.com/2015/12/kung-fu-panda-indictment-fraud-perjury-dreamworks-animation-1201671213/ charged with fraud]]. In addition, Disney could possibly sue the man for plagiarizing one of their works directly, which they've always frowned on (it's likely DWA will sue him to retrieve the money they spent on legal bills.)

* AndYouThoughtItWouldFail[=/=]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 THREE times (with ''Oliver & Company'' and ''The Little Mermaid'' earlier, and ''The Prince of Egypt'' and ''Shrek'' at DreamWorks later.)
