The Lion King is one of Disney’s most beloved films of all times. There isn’t a kid out there who hasn’t watched the film, and there isn’t a parent out there who hasn’t shed a tear when Simba lost his father. However, no matter how many times you’ve watched the animated film, we’re quite certain there are many Easter Eggs involving the movie you’ve never noticed before.
This is just one example: There’s one scene in The Lion King (1994), where Zazu, Mufasa’s trustworthy royal advisor, tells the king that the evil Scar would make a handsome throw rug. Three years later, Hercules was released to theaters, and diehard fans may have noticed Zazu’s suggestion came true, as we see the hero of the film handling a throw rug that looks just like Scar.
