Last page of my spoof contest entry for :icondevinital-tlk:
If you haven't heard, Disney is slated to make a 'live-action' version of the movie (which is kinda... not really? Seeing as every character will be ANIMATED anyway, just in realistic STYLE...). Which means they will change the story, I am sure, and have new VAs, and so on, so the "Lion King" was we know it will end and become an entirely different thing. Thus, my twist on this contest, which is to do the 'end' of the Pridelands. Hope you all enjoyed/were amused, and hope it made ya somewhat happy, Dev ;D

No, this does not herald a return to business as usual so don't get excited and don't watch me for that. Ain't happening. This is just me trying to brighten someone's day because I know how shitty it can be to be excited for entries and then have nothing happen. It's disappointing, to say the least.

ANYWAY. I chose to go very fourth-wall breakage for my "entry". It's meant to be tongue-in-cheek, so please don't take it seriously or get offended; this picks on everyone's fan-theories, including my own. The 'style' is what I would call Rinja-garbage-style: quickly drawn, with little erasing or line-clean-up. Just meant to get the idea out there, and amuse is all.

All art is mine, unfortunately. I don't know why you'd want to steal it, but please don't. The last panel is a screencap of Fortune.com's announcement of Disney's decision.

...This comic was freaking GENIUS XD


(Also, I both dread and look forward to the "live-action" remake lol Jungle Book remake was totally epic, surpassed what I expected tbh, but not sure what they'll do to Lion King...)

Thanks so much! 8D

I feel you. I know the story will change, and I cringe to think what they might do. That and I will miss Irons as Scar, because I doubt they get the same people as the VAs.

Only VA I know for a fact who plans on reprising his role is James Earl Jones, but let's face it, he's just awesome like that.

I bashed EVERYTHING, love, picking on tropes of the series. TLG fans bash the Kopa fans, Kiara fans bash them both, Kopa/Fluffy fans hate Kion and Kiara, some fans hate all three. I picked on ALL those tropes.

On the one hand I'm happy to see TLK as live action film and it's highly possible they'll change the story a bit (jungle book), but on the other hand some voices of characters I really liked might not exist anymore (young Simba (speaker is adult now) or Mufasa (speaker died) and it can be hard to replace them.

I think you mean Sarabi's VA? James Earl Jones (Mufasa) is still alive, so far as I am aware, but I know Sarabi and Zira's VAs passed on. I am most wanting Scar's VA (Jeremy Irons) to return, but I doubt any of them will come back. And I figure the story will be changed, just as for every other 'live action' and I am wary what they will do to it. Add in deleted scenes like "Scar's Madness" (which I absolutely detest and loathe)? Change stuff to alternate scripts (the more 'realistic' ones)? Or do new things altogether? Will it have unexplained characters added to it (like Zira)? I just dunno how I feel about it. Wary and not sure I want any such thing.

Ah no, I come from germany. In germany the actor voice of Mufasa (Wolfgang Kühne) passed away in 2008.
But you're right, they will change the script for sure. I think they "need to present people some new" and not to present another "different graphic" of TLK 1 as they did in the "3D" movie, only. In my opinion it would be nice to add cubs like Chumvii, Malka (who might be killed by hyena under Scars reign) while femals are still alive. If I remeber right, the LA "jungle book" was darker than the comic version. If LA TLK will be also darker than it's comic version, to me it would fit the story and explain why there are missing other cubs. But I highly doubt they will combine the whole stuff of TLK 1 and 2, because of the lesser popularity of the second film. Therefore I also think they won't do a remake of the second movie, too.

I know what you mean. I try to see LA TLK as a different thing.

yea, I'm wary of it. Might be good, but since I know it will be a different story altogether (as all the rest have been, with only vague relations to their inspirations), I worry.

Understandable. So long as they don't fuck it up too badly, and don't add 'magic' to it, it should be good. I for one am hoping they do go more realistic in a good way, and show the lions hunting, even if there's no blood. Having the lions seeming not feared as the predators they were always rubbed me the wrong way, especially since some of the first animal shows I watched on tv showed nature raw and uncut when it came to hunting.

I'm kind of scared. At the same time, though, I wonder how it is going to change. Like I don't think it NEEDS an update and feel it's stupid to call it 'live-action' at all, but I dunno. I'm scared. HOLD ME! *jumps into your arms*

W-w-w-whaaaat? A live action? I imagine it'll be animated like The Jungle Book, which is actually pretty exciting...but yeah, say good-bye to the franchise we know and love LULZ. : /

...mebbe the voice acting will be the same, though...*hopes for way too much*

Thats what I was saying -- it's animated, and because it's all-animal, there tech wouldn't BE live-action, so why call it 'live-action'? xD

I doubt they get them back. I hold out for at LEAST Scar's VA, but I still doubt it will occur *cries*

I am 100% okay with you returning just for this piece of art <333 Poor Fluffy, though! XD 

That said, this comic is a great example of why everyone has their own headcanons and there is no reason to attack someone/some character just because you don't agree with it. Come back to teach this youngsters a lesson, Rinja!

about TLG, man, it makes me soooo confused Dx I mean, I don't like the show to begin with, but I watch it for LOLs and to have stuff to discuss with the 4-6yo I am a volunteer in teaching now and then (they have the coolest stories, they put everyone around here to shame xD). I just can't fit the damn thing on my personal headcanon, or ignore it, and I don't go dark enough to say it's all a figment of Kiara's imagination. Bleeeeh. 

Am quite excited for the live-action tho! It obviously won't be the same, but I'll probably love it... For it. A la Kiara & Kovu *shot* 

That said, I love how some things on TLG would kinda work with your universe and/or the idea of how the pridelands are darker than it looks... Like how there just -aren't- (Kion Sparkle said so) leopards in the pridelands. And jackals, and vultures, and hyenas. The pridelands is only this 'peaceful' pride because they chase off every other competing predator (and/or kill them. Cuz yea.) except cheetahs, but they don't really compete with lions for food. Hah, I love these little details

this came out too big. But meh. Still love love love this comic tho!

Mhm! It's one reason I never really posted anything TLK-related... Y'know, not counting how unhappy I was with my style at the time xD But yea. Why people argue so much? at the end of the day you can't really force anyone to change their mind.

Yea, I kinda wish I could see what you'd do with Kion, story/design style, just for kicks. But eh, I am totally cool with sticking to what you've moved on to >:3

Yea, that's the shame about fandoms. There is always drama and toxicity. The two fandoms I'm currently in, one has a small but incredibly toxic/vocal part of it, who get after people that ship the canon thing for being homophobic (aka, because their fanon same sex ship will never be a thing)... Let it be known that there are plenty LGBT people that ship the canon thing, and that there ARE ships of the same sex in the show. But naaaah, homophobics everywhere, man. It makes me sick xP and the other has self-entitled 'well known' artists/storytellers, a bunch of people who whine about wanting spoilers and whine when they do get the spoilers, shipping wars (did I mention the ships are actually the same two people? It's annoying), and the overall whining keeps me from enjoying the news |D 

it's kind of sad, tbh, how every fandom starts to suck when you spend too much time in it. I just wanted to have fun xD buuut yea, I don't miss the TLK fandom either. Except maybe your universe, but not the actual current thing.
