Wild Facts About The Lion King That’ll Bring Your Life Full Circle

The Lion King was a defining moment in my childhood, and if you were a kid in the ’90s, it probably was in yours as well. I think people who were parents of young children in the ’90s also have a very special place in their hearts for this film.

I am so excited for the new live-action remake, but that doesn’t come out for a while. So while you’re waiting, why not get caught up on a bunch of wild facts about the original animated motion picture?

Remember when Mufasa asks Zazu what he should do with Scar? Zazu replies, “He’d make a very handsome throw rug.” Disney didn’t forget about the line either. Just a few years later Scar returned in all his former glory.

In 1997’s Hercules, Scar makes a not-so-subtle cameo in the form of a throw rug. It’s not a “blink and you’ll miss it” moment like most Disney easter eggs. Instead, it’s easily noticeable and a wonderful treat for Disney fans everywhere.
