Never miss a Film Theory! ►
Last time I talked about the Lion King, we were seeing just how big the body count was for this beloved Disney movie and sayong Scar was the rightful king. WEll, we are leaning into that even HARDER this time! Today, I want to talk about the sibling rivalry to end all sibling rivalries - Scar and Mufasa. Theorists, lions are a very, VERY interesting animal. I think that Scar ATE Mufasa after the stampede. You'll have to watch to find out WHY!

    gotta be honest i love making tiktoks, and very much enjoy fan thoeries. i do everything to make them accurate, but tiktok (and youtube for that matter) doesnt promote accuracy unfortunately. but i would still rather make better fact based videos rather than go for just the views. p.s. i still think the among us characters are not human lol

    10:56 Actually, its herbivores that have sharp teeth. Carnivore teeth can be sharp but as you said, they terr their food apart. Herbivores need to grind their food because plants are harder to digest. Some herbivores have flat teeth but if you actually look at a lot of herbivore teeth like antelope, horses, and even rhinos, their teeth have lots of sharp edges on them for steering the plants they eat. So it's actually Herbivores with sharp teeth. You can even feel it in your own mouth, your plant grinding molars are sharper than your meat tearing canines.

    Film theory idea: What was the toxic waste that turned the people in to zombies (Eddsworld) In the begining of the snorge two pilots drop a toxic wast barrel, then at the end of the episode we see people getting turned into zombies because of the waste which ends up making the plot for "Fun dead"

    Hey Matt I have a question, so Norse mythology is the main one in the mcu, but when peter comes back after getting snapd he says "Woah! I must've KNOCKED out cause when I woke up you were gone. In Norse mythology you to vahallah when you die, but Peter never mentions that, so did they die? If you can do a mini-theory on this or something I'd apreciate it a lot, and plz don't give me a shout out.

    The reason Pride Rock went to heck in a hand basket is not because Mufasa died but, because Scar began over hunting the antelope and other food sources because he had made a pact with the hyenas. This is why we have hunting seasons to keep from destroying reliable ecosystems! Great video and have been watching for years!

    When it comes to whether Scar would eat Mufasa, it might be a last resort for lions to eat lions, but that crag they’re living in doesn’t look teeming with life/prey.
