I googled it and saw the side by side pic comparisons. It's nuts. I showed it to DH too since that is his favorite movie. Ah well, I'll keep loving lion king, just like I keep loving Harry Potter

boy! Those are some doosies! Think the biggest one I had was insisting that 'disneyland' was not the first name Walt considered. My friend just didn't believe me because he had already founded the disney co. But oh well.

my marketing teacher made our final where we had to create a new ride at an already existent theme park and one of the choices was Disney's Universal Studios the sad part about this is that she went to Universal studios about a month before the exam for a field trip and she still didn't know the difference and when we were presenting this exam one kid said that WDW opened in 1955 he clearly thought that it was DL

Um... I actually sat down and watched "Kimba" during the heat of this controversy several years ago. And while the "ZOMG 'teh Lion King' is a 'Kimba' ripoff!" crowd does kinda have a point during the less-epic "Circle of Life"-ish opening credits, their argument really falls apart once the humans get involved. And Earth Mother. Who is a wooly mammoth. Naturally.

Plus the writers of TLK swore up and down after this reached them that they'd never even heard of "Kimba". So, there's that. More about this at StraightDope. Basically, it's "Hamlet" with some of the same species as "Kimba", folks.

(Now Timon and Pumba vs. Ren and Stimpy on the other hand... )

I am the type that can honestly say It doesnt really bother me, spent some time googling it and reading things, watching videos, etc. but at the end of the day... I really really like the Lion King, especially the music and none of this effects my opinion of Disney or The Lion King.

How many times was she held back?

Your friend was probably thinking of Fantasia 2000...but to not know there was an original means she doesn't know a lot about Disney!

It’s weird to get to know that people don’t know Pirates of the Caribbean was a Disney movie. We were at Disneyland and there was a Jack Sparrow lookalike roaming around. One guy out of the crowd asked him “What are you doing in Disneyland”. Once he questioned some more came and were amused to see Jack Sparrow in Disneyland. When he explained that it’s a Disney movie they were not ready to believe it.

Woah, that one just makes me go

Kind of reminds me of those poor cast members who are probably already sick of being asked, "Where's the Harry Potter ride?!"
