The Lion King: Animal Ethics in Film
Wanted a thread to discuss the most click-baity hot-button topics surrounding this most classic of Disney movies (but not the best, I mean have you SEEN Lilo and Stitch?) that manages to worm their way into every Cracked/Buzzfeed article I've ever seen. You know the ones:
  • "Why do the animals bow down to an animal that's going to eat them? That's not right!"
  • "Hyenas get unfair treatment in this movie. They were just hungry!"
  • "Scar was really the good guy and Mufasa was evil!"
And I mean, I personally don't agree with any of the above, but this is a topic that always seems to spark discussion: why are some animals more equal than others?
Isn't the fact that the animals aren't equals a rather realistic thing anyway? Both in history and modern times?

Also, Scar was ready to throw the lives of the Lionesses and Hyenas away if it meant saving himself, which he attempted to do with both.
Scar was once a lion guard but he lost his power after killing his team when they refuse to help him usurp the throne.

No more opinions on this one?
