This is about to BLOW. YOUR. MIND!
The Walt Disney Signature Collection is opening their vault once again and this time they’re releasing ‘The Lion King‘. The DVD is jam packed with tons of special features, including a conversation with Disney theatrical group President, Tom Schumacher.
He revealed that ‘The Lion King’ almost had a completely different story line when he said:
“The whole idea was that Simba didn’t run off with Timon and Pumbaa,” Schumacher explained. “Scar was going to kill Simba the same time he kills Mufasa. He’s holding Simba in his mouth, and he’s about to break his neck. Everyone comes in and says, ‘Oh my gosh, you saved him from the stampede!’ The idea was [Simba] was going to grow up with Scar, and be the goof-off kid.”
