    21 Thoughts I Had While Watching "The Lion King" For The First Time Ever

    I think we can all agree that there is no way Simba would be that buff after eating bugs for years.

    I'm Hanifah, and I've somehow managed to have never seen The Lion King.

    Well, since the live-action remake is out this week, I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to watch the original to see what all the fuss is about.

    I'm trying to make amends.

    1. Who calls one of their kids ~Mufasa~ and the other one Scar?

    2. Mufasa is kind of a dick...

    3. ...and Scar is a complete mood.

    4. Where are all the other male lions?

    5. And if Scar and Mufasa are the only guys: are Nala and Simba related?!?!

    6. Simba's practically begging to be eaten by those hyenas.

    7. And it's a bit morbid that they're running around elephant corpses...

    8. "Be prepared" is a such a bop.

    9. How come Scar's friends with all the hyenas?

    10. Okay, the death scene was pretty damn tragic.

    11. Simba definitely would've died in the desert.

    12. Where exactly is this movie set?

    13. Are Timon and Pumbaa...a couple?

    14. Sorry, but there is no way Simba would be that buff after eating bugs for years.

    15. Who's the monkey?!?!

    16. How does Simba instantly recognise Nala when she looks like literally every other female lion in this movie?

    17. Timon and Pumbaa are comedy genius.

    18. Nala has some serious bedroom eyes.

    19. And she knew exactly how to make Simba get his shit together – Nala's the MVP.

    20. Timon and Pumbaa's level of dedication is next level.

    21. Why exactly did Scar want to be king so bad?

    To sum up: I can totally see why this is everyone's favourite Disney movie.
