* 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.)

** Shenzi was originally supposed to be voiced by [[Creator/CheechAndChong Tommy Chong]], and would have reunited Chong with his former comedy partner, Cheech Marin. However, the two were not on speaking terms at the time, and the character was changed into a female, with WhoopiGoldberg performing the voice. Cheech and Chong finally did reunite, however, in 2008.

* 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).
