The Lion King's old-school simplicity roars on | Film | The Guardian
Yet despite or perhaps because of this old-school simplicity, The Lion King continues to triumph. It is powerful and bold.
Young Simba Swahili for "lion" is introduced by his father Mufasa Swahili for "king" to all his responsibilities as a future monarch. He must respect all creatures "from the crawling ant to the leaping antelope" and when Simba points out that they eat the antelope, Mufasa quietly but firmly explains that when lions die, they become grass "and the antelope eat the grass, and so we are all connected in the Circle of Life".
Simba is not so disloyal or disobedient as to point out that that grass does not experience fear and pain, in the way the antelope does. It is a benignly untroubled exposition of the carnivore's natural prerogative and screenwriters might perhaps now feel constrained to acknowledge more explicitly the herbivores' existence. But it is not a bad introduction to the concept that we are all interrelated, and that everything we do has an effect on everything else.
