Differences Between The Lion King Film and Musical
Disney's The Lion King was one of the most successful Disney films of the 20th century. It even inspired a Broadway musical with numerous international productions, including very successful runs in Japan, the United Kingdom, France, Canada, Australia, China and South Africa. But how different is the immensely popular musical from the immensely popular film? Let's take a closer look at two of the major differences between the show as it premiered in 1997 and the film, which was released in 1994.

Perhaps the biggest difference between the musical and the film which inspired it is the character of Rafiki, the hermit who holds the baby Simba high in his iconic pose above Pride Rock in the film's opening musical sequence. In the film, the character is male; in the musical, however, Rafiki has been changed to a female character. The producers of the show, when asked about this change in interviews, stated that they believe the original film lacked a central, strong female role-hence why Rafiki, who appears throughout the show, was given a gender switch.

The second noticeable difference between the musical and the film has been once which has raised the eyebrows of more than a few parents. In the film, the villain character of Scar is shown as being so power hungry and uncaring that he allows the natural circle of life to become off balance, leading to a famine. This in turn leads Simba's childhood friend, Nala, to flee their pride in search of help. In the musical, the reason for Nala's flight is much darker: Scar, who begins to lose his mind in a song aptly titled "The Madness of King Scar," decides that he wants to make Nala his queen, and assaults her. She runs from him, and decides it is finally time to seek help from someone outside her pride. This change has been the cause of some criticism from parents, who believe it is far too adult for a musical aimed at children. However, this particular scene was actually inspired by an early concept for the original film, which was deleted for length and content purposes.

These are just two of the most significant differences between the original Broadway musical and the 1994 film. Other changes, such as small tweaks to characterization, added dialogue, and instrumental music are also present in the show. By: D Kelly.
