The Lion King, by Rob Minkoff and Roger Allers, came just when it was needed. The studio had been through some box office flops and needed to regain its footing to continue to hold onto audiences and critics. Since 1989 with the premiere of The Little Mermaid, Disney has become the all-powerful house of cartoons. Year after year we enjoy Beauty and the Beast (1991), Aladdin (1992), Hercules (1997) or Mulán (1998). Simba’s tape is in this privileged group.
Development of the film began in 1988, almost ten years before it was released, but main production kicked off in 1991. The film crew moved to Kenya to investigate the animals and landscape and so on. to provide authenticity to the feature film. The lion king went through several bumps, as it usually happens in many film projects. It lost one of its original directors -George Scribner left the project due to creative differences-, there was a rewrite of the script, many doubts… But the workers trusted it and carried it forward.
The Lion King has often been referred to as the only Disney classic to feature only animals, with no humans in the plot, but that’s not entirely true. You have to think that the characters in Robin Hood, Chicken Little and Zootopia are also exclusively animals, although in their case, they are anthropomorphic. I mean, they’re animals but they act like they’re human, that’s the catch. Dinosaur, the 2000 film partially shot with real footage, does have only animals.
