6. Family Friendly

Initially, the reason an adult Nala wandered so far from Pride Rock was supposed to be because Scar had banished her for ignoring his romantic advances. This plot point was dropped, as it was considered improper for a family movie.

7. An Unlikely Success

Lion King and Pocahontas were in production at the same time. And believe it or not, Disney believed that Pocahontas would be the more prestigious and successful of the two films.

8. What a Gas

Pumbaa is the first Disney character to ever fart. Well, at least on screen.

9. Be Prepared

Reportedly, the Be Prepared scene was inspired by footage of Nazis marching by Adolf Hitler on a podium. So that's not creepy or anything.

10. Get In the Spirit

Mufasa was originally not supposed to appear after his death. The spirit scene was added after producers thought Simba needed a reason to go back to Pride Rock. It was also the last scene created for the movie.
