* MagnumOpus: As far as the movies he's overseen goes, former Disney studio chief and DreamWorks co-founder Jeffrey Katzenberg considers ''The Lion King'' to be his Magnum Opus. It's the one film he's vowed to watch again someday (sadly, this happened to be his GrandFinale release for [[Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon Walt Disney Feature Animation;]] he was sent out the door a few months after the film's premiere, and wasn't allowed to go to the U.K. premiere when Elton John bailed out of a party he was supposed to host).

This could have been on the creator's page, but the creator doesn't have one, so this will have to do.

* ScrewedByTheLawyers: A ''Lion King'' coloring book from 1996 got plagiarized and produced as a ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda'' predecessor in 2011 in an attempt to defraud ''Panda'' copyright holder [=DreamWorks=] Animation; when they found the original book, it sunk that attempt and got the person behind it 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.)

* ExecutiveMeddling: Mufasa's infamous death scene was originally several seconds shorter than it appeared in the final film. At one pencil test review, Jeff Katzenberg turned to the animators, pointed to his dry eye and announced "I'm not cryin'!" The result was a longer scene that touched every single emotional nerve in an effort to become as sad as possible.
