Edit Request from 28 of April, 2012[edit]

Um, in the "plot" section of this article, someone (I don't know who, but that's ok) misspelled "Pumbaa" at least once. I should know that there's two of the letter "a" in his name, as I am a very big Disney fan (I have even been known to get very nerdy about Disney and start arguements w/ close friends if they don't know a Disney factoid). Obviously, the person typing there may have had a slip on the keyboard or a sticking "a" key that caused the article to say "Pumba" instead of "Pumbaa", or something similar. I can't edit the problem myself, because I am not currently a Wikipedia registered member (although I might join if I had a little more freetime on my hands, which should be coming soon :D), so someone else might be so polite as to please fix the problem.

Potential grammar/wording issue, plot[edit]

The sentence "The hyenas are friends of Scar, who then plot with them to take over the Pride Lands" seems weird. Who is them? It should either say "who then plots with them" or "who then plot with him" depending on whether Scar or the hyenas are doing the plotting.

Add a Based on in the title box that says it's based on Hamlet by William Shakespeare 97.121.57.202 (talk) 23:55, 13 March 2015 (UTC)

Red information icon with gradient background.svg Not done:: The article says it was inspired/influenced by Hamlet; that is completely different thing to an adaptation. Betty Logan (talk) 00:11, 14 March 2015 (UTC)

Controversies[edit]

The original phrasing, which I've restored, about perceived similarities between this movie and the TV show Simba the White Lion reads: "with characters having similar analogues, and various individual scenes being similar in composition to the show." This is supported by cites in the rest of this section. Saying "appears to be copied" is unsupported POV that directly makes an accusation of plagiarism, a crime, which the weasel phrase "appears to be" does not mitigate. --Tenebrae (talk) 19:39, 19 April 2015 (UTC)
