[[folder: Predictions for the upcoming LiveActionAdaptation]]
[[WMG: Scar's backstory will be explored.]]
For example, where his scar came from and the origin of his relationship with the hyenas will be explained, most likely drawing inspiration from the [[http://disney.wikia.com/wiki/A_Tale_of_Two_Brothers "A Tale Of Two Brothers" story]].
[[WMG: Ideas and characters removed from the original film will be reinserted here.]]
Several items seen in the original film's [[Trivia/TheLionKing Trivia page]] will be included, such as Nala's brother Mheetu and some of the CutSongs as well.
[[WMG: Creator/JonFavreau will enlist some of his usual collaborators to work on the film.]]
For example, John Debney will likely do the music, while incorporating Hans Zimmer's themes from the original. Some of Favreau's actors and friends may also show up. For example:
* Either Creator/SamRockwell or Creator/RobertDowneyJr will play Timon.
* Creator/IdrisElba ''(Film/TheJungleBook2016)'' will play Rafiki or Mufasa.
* Neel Sethi ''(Mowgli from Favreau's Jungle Book film)'' will play Simba as a cub.
* Creator/Scarlett Johansson and Creator/LupitaNyongo may play characters as well.
[[WMG: Despite including songs, the film will not be a musical.]]
Much like Favreau's previous [[Film/TheJungleBook2016 Disney work]].
[[WMG: It will be DarkerAndEdgier than the original.]]
With an increased amount of deaths and [[AdaptationAngstUpgrade increased angst]] for several characters.
[[WMG: Fitting to the above WMG, the effects of Scar's rule will also be further detailed.]]
For example, his killing of other cubs and his [[NoYay attraction to Nala]]. Attempted coups and rebellions against him may also be shown.
[[WMG: Scenes from Film/LionKingOneAndAHalf will also be incorporated into the film.]]
E.g. Simba's nightmares and scenes showing Timon and Pumbaa's backstories.

[[WMG: Simba secretly ate meat behind Timon and Pumbaa's backs]]
Think about it - if he ate nothing but bugs his whole life, Simba would be very malnourished and wouldn't stand a chance against Scar (or Nala, depending on her health during the Pridelands' drought). So the only logical explanation is that, while Timon and Pumbaa were occupied, Simba would sneak off and hunt larger prey.

[[WMG: Scar was [[EvilEunuch [[EunuchsAreEvil sterile.]] ]]



The story was, in fact, commissioned by Simba's granddaughter in order to justify Simba's seizure of power and unfairly portray Scar as a monster.

[[WMG: The Lion King '''was''' originally going to be a straight-up {{Remake}} of ''[[KimbaTheWhiteLion Kimba]]'', but...]]
* Disney then realized how incredibly difficult it would be to get the rights to the anime - it had been in the hands of various animation studios in japan, numerous dubbers, and everything - but it was too far along in pre-production to change most of the story, so they [[SerialNumbersFiledOff changed]] Kimba to Simba, Claw to Scar, and added elements of ''{{Hamlet}}''. Unfortunately, this still wasn't enough to keep FanDumb from attacking it as a rip-off when it's more like how ''Film/TheMagnificentSeven'' was a re-telling of ''Film/SevenSamurai'', only this time, instead of it being the Seven Samurai [[RecycledInSpace replaced by cowboys]], it was Kimba's characters with the plot of Hamlet, making it a very strange - and ultimately, very [[SoCoolItsAwesome great]] - variation of RecycledInSpace.

* The Lion Guard makes mention of Nala's father, although briefly. It doesn't explain where he went, but the assumption some people are making is [[spoiler: he was killed by Scar along with the rest of the last Lion Guard]]

[[WMG: The hyena attack on the meerkat colony in ''The Lion King 1 1/2'' was not actually serious.]]
Look at that scene again. The hyenas aren't even ''trying'' to eat the meerkats. They just bat them around for a bit and ''talk'' about eating them, but even when they have the perfect opportunity to kill one, they don't -- they get the drop on Timon, and just bat him over towards the other meerkats so that there'll be a panic -- and then when he stops and cowers they run right past him to chase the rest of the meerkats. When they've got Uncle Max, they do no worse to him than eat the fur off his tail and then apparently let him escape, while they walk away and laugh about the entire thing. Because their goal here wasn't to eat, it was just to scare the meerkats and get in a few good puns while they were at it. Lucky for Uncle Max that the hyenas weren't hungry that day!
