Is Walt Disney really just a thief who stole Lion King from Tezuka?
Quistis88
I've had that suspicion ever since I saw The Lion King as a child. I used to read Tezuka in my childhood (but did not watch the animated stuff) and did see similarities once I saw the movie. Looks like someone finally made a page for it. biggrin.gif
Envy's lil' miniskirt
My ex used to watch Kimba as a kid and said it was exactly like the Lion king. I never saw it so I can't back it up but the bookstore in Japantown had a shirt with a picture of Kimba and Simba on it that said The Lyin King.

Besides, when's the last time Disney had an orginal idea.

Let's all go burn down Disney Studios for ripping off from the might that IS anime! biggrin.gif

Amen to that. Disney's knocked off a lotta stuff; changed some names, animated differently and somehow produced okay movies without getting sued.
miss_neko
way before anime started, the japanese copyed the style of cartoon drawing from Disney and called it Anime.

As quoted in "Anime Insider" issue 19, "Hey, don't forget, father of manga Osama Tezuka was inspired by Disney movies..."

Oh, BTW I just noticed that the company is named Tezuka. So I guess maybe Disney did a kind of remake? Who knows? Honestly I don't care, I love Disney Land happy.gif!

I've always managed to love disney movies, lol. And point of fact: ANIME. INSIDER. ROCKS.
Luckyalchemy27
In my opinion, Disney has been going downhill. They managed to make several classics, but now they've descended to doing crappy sequels.
ymsg
Yeah, I noticed that. Suddenly there's a Mulan sequel, Pocahantas, and 50 billion others that we don't need, ya know? (no offense if you liked the Mulan or Pocahantas sequel)

The Pocahontas sequel has been here for several years already (it actually was all that bad, but it still sucked). Everything is coming out with sequels nowadays, and the sequels either ruin the original, or just suck on their own.

The Lion King sequel was the one I disliked the most. The Pocahontas one actually got a laugh or two out of me (like that character with the really really long name; I can say it but I can't spell it). But the last time I saw it was nearly half a decade ago.

is disney a thieve???

at first, i thought that disney wanted to copy animes since they also created characters with big eyes and slender bodies etc(that was since 2000 until now)...

but then, i heard of an anime which reminded me of the "american cartoon" BatmanOfTheFuture... i think this anime is called TheBigO... and since then i knew that also japanese cartoonists are copying the arts of america!

It's true. Mankind has been creating stores for probably thousands if not millions of years. Everything has been done it's kind of like they said in Strange days,

"We've done it all, every kind of movie, every flavor of bubble gum what else is there for us."
(not accurate quote)

Not to sound like OMG IT'S THE END OF THE WORLD! but how much more can we do? Of course with changing technology and trends it could provide some orginality but don't most movies just go back to good vs evil be it mythical creature, corporate raider, supervillian or lion relitive who wants your position of king (or emperor) of the jungle.

I believe people can still have orginal ideas, I refuse to give up hope. Take FMA for instance true it goes back to good vs evil but the story as a whole is very orginal.

Sadly those people are few and far inbetween and the ones who do have orginal ideas, say screenplays may never get their works to Hollywood and often times when they do it runs the risk of being bastardized into something the studio feels is more saleable to the public. Sadly, most big budget movie making is aimed more at making money than making art.

Remember, the Lord of the Rings trilogy, one of the most successful movie trilogys of all time is based off 50 year old book series. So yeah, we're starting to run thin.

And that's my movie rant for today, thanks for stopping by. biggrin.gif

Seriously though, Balto, Pocahantas, Lion King, all total suck fests. Why. Can't. They. Grow. Brains.

Do you notice they're all digitally remastering ALL of them, bringing the good old classics back for an attention grabber?
Luckyalchemy27
You said it. And now they're just plain remaking some old ones. *coughCharlieandthecoughChocolatefactorycough* Although I'm not sure that's Disney...

I don't think it is but it's still pissing me off that they are remaking that film, the orginal was so good. I have friends who are planning on renting the orginal on the remakes opening night and watching it instead.

Even if Johnny Depp is in it I have no desire to see it.

What's next for Hollywood? A remake of Citizen Kane and Gone With the Wind perhaps?

I have a lot of doubts about the Willy Depp one, too. If he ruins it, he'd better watch out, as it's one of my favorite stories, and Gene Wilder's version being one of my favorite movies. biggrin.gif

I like him and I usually like what movies he's in but I wouldn't go as far as to say I'm a Depp fangirl or anything like that.

I'm all for remastering a film. Gone with the Wind is one of my favorite movies I remember I used to watch it all the time as a kid when they would play old movies on free tv instead of infomercials to take up space.

Anyway, I remember when I saw the remastered edition it was like seeing a whole new film The colors were so bright and you could see the costumes and cinematography in all its glory.

So it does serve a purpose I have a feeling south park was kidding not sure about the Simpsons I've seen some really washed out episodes of the simpsons since they play that show so much
ymsg
If they redo gone with the wind, I'll sue.

Anyway, Yeah, I like Johnny Depp; he's a good actor and can pull of a lot of roles. But he truly looks scary in the Willy Wonka previews. That was one of my fave movies when I was younger, and I'll still watch it if I see it on TV; Gene Wilder was amazing in it. If they mess it up, I swear...

I heard Charlie and the Chocolate factory, the remake was a good movie, I thought it looked scary in the previews too. I think I would like the Gene Wilder one better than the remake. I did enjoy the remake of freaky friday over the old verison (which I watched for a report).


One thing that makes me want to kill directors are the movies that are based on books. I know that they only BASED on books but would it kill them to make the movie a little more similar to the book. I mean Ella Enchanted that is one of my favorite books. I thought the movie was horrible, they added riddles, evil uncles,and singing. I was going to throw my popcorn at the screen but i ate it all. Don't get me started on Harry Potter.
(oops,kinda off topic. Sorry!)

It seems to me that there is enough proof that Disney stole Kimba but what Phyco girl said.

Um First of all Disney had been dead for like 40 years before Lion King was made.

Second Lion King is based off of Hamlet which is also the basis for many other movies (Probably including Kimba).

Remake of Tezuka's Popular Story Turns Into Denial?

IPB Image
The image above is © Disney. It can be found as part of the "Presentation Reel" extra on the Lion King Platinum Edition DVD.

"There is no doubt in my mind
that The Lion King is a copy of Kimba."

-- Billie Lou Watt,
original voice of Kimba The White Lion


Did the Disney studio steal Kimba and rework it as their "original story", The Lion King? They certainly give that impression with their corporate stance ("we never heard of Tezuka nor Kimba until after The Lion King was released"). And why would they have filed suit to try to prevent the showing of Tezuka Productions' 1997 Jungle Emperor Leo movie at the 1998 Toronto FantAsia Film Festival? (Jungle Emperor was the original title for Kimba The White Lion.) It seems quite simple; Kimba had been kept out of sight in North America for 20 years by that time. And once you can see the two together...

Tezuka, 1965
Disney, 1994

I'm sure you've heard how every character in The Lion King has a matching character in Kimba, all the way down to the level of both having a sage mandrill mis-identified as a baboon. (Here's a couple of pages by people in Japan on that subject:
Y-Asada's page
Reekan-J's page

If you want to read more on this subject, I've got just the guy to tell you about it: Click here to retrieve Robin Pen's essay, originally published in Eidolon Magazine, and reproduced here with the author's permission. Even if you know the full Lion King debate, if you haven't read Robin Pen's review, it's really an excellent essay and well worth your time.

Tezuka, ca.1980?
Disney, 1994

The shame of the matter is that the Disney company is sticking to their official line --that their people never heard of Kimba before The Lion King was released-- even in the face of logic and evidence. As Robin Pen pointed out (in the essay referenced above), if we were to take their statement at face value, it actually means they were stupid and irresponsible. But more than that, many examples say just the opposite of the Disney statement. Peter Schweizer and Rochelle Schweizer have these and even more examples in their book Disney: The Mouse Betrayed.

Tezuka, ca. 1980?
Disney, 1994

During planning sessions for The Lion King, Simba started out as a white lion until one of the animators spoke up: "Not even OUR lawyers are THAT good!" Maybe so, but notice how both characters have a tuft of hair in the middle of their foreheads, and the very unusual dark ear rim. That alone shows how Kimba is the direct predecessor of Simba.

It is my opinion that the creative people at Disney most definitely knew of Kimba as they were making The Lion King-- but somehow, before the movie could be released, it was decided that the tie must be denied. Even if that means a slap in the face for Osamu Tezuka, the "Walt Disney of Japan".

Let's look at some more similarities...

Tezuka, 1965
Disney, 1994

Both title characters turn to eating bugs to save their herbivore friends. In The Lion King, they blow past this idea in under a minute, but it was a major plot element in Kimba; the meat eaters tried eating plants until they hit on the idea of eating bugs.

Tezuka, 1965
Disney, 1994

And more... the patch of thorns... (This scene called the matching scene from Kimba immediately to my mind. I couldn't believe how much alike they were.)

...dangling from a cliff with the villain above...
(FYI: The antagonist lion in Kimba was introduced as his "aunt", while Scar was Simba's uncle.)

Disney, 1994

... and the stampede.

And there is of course the opening sequence of Jungle Emperor (the Japanese version of Kimba) and the parallel opening sequence of The Lion King. The most famous comparison of the two is the image of the lion on the jutting rock, as shown at the top of this page. You can download a RealVideo file of the Japanese opening sequence here. Compare it for yourself to the opening of The Lion King.

I've left for last the big thing everyone mentions when comparing the two works: the parent lion appearing in the sky. There's good reason people pay attention to this: When Kimba's mother appears to him in the stars shortly after being killed, it is one of the most touching and moving scenes in television animation history. And, several times during the Lion King, the idea of ancestors in the stars is mentioned. However, when Simba does have a vision of his father, it is in a cloud and (perhaps) the moon (there is a lot of light in that scene, which suggests the moon). This has a different parallel in Kimba.

Tezuka, 1965
Disney, 1994

In the episode "Dangerous Journey", Kimba is faced with the need to undertake a, well, dangerous journey in order to save an important member of their community. He doesn't think he is capable of doing it, but that night his father appears to him in the moon, and convinces him that this is something he has to do.
In the Lion King, Simba is faced with the need to save his entire community, a task he doesn't think he is capable of doing until his father appears to him in the moon/clouds and convinces him that he can.
As you can see from these pictures, the moon imagery matches with the Kimba TV episode; the cloud imagery matches with the end of the original manga story.

Tezuka, 1950
Disney, 1994

Anyone still want to try to convince me it's all a coincidence? Peter and Rochelle Schweizer interviewed Disney animators and report that while working on the Lion King the animators held up stills from Kimba for comparison to their own work.

Kimba is one of the landmarks of animation. The Disney company has earned over 1.5 billion dollars from The Lion King but has not given either any sort of compensation to Tezuka Productions nor credit to Osamu Tezuka. I know their creative people know better. In and of itself, it's not a crime that they did take elements from Tezuka's work--there are also elements in The Lion King that would seem to come from Kipling's Jungle Books (not the Disney version) and from a famous pre-WWII Nazi propaganda film (Triumph of the Will). Cultural references are to be expected. But when a work derives so much from another, denying the source is wrong. To deny the source does an injustice to Osamu Tezuka, the original creator, and to Disney's own people who love Tezuka's works.

Why must the Disney company take such a stance about their main source of inspiration for this film? Could it be that The Lion King started out originally to be a remake of Kimba The White Lion?
  • As stated here, the similarities between the two are many, and well documented.
  • The Disney corporate stance, that none of Disney's people knew of Kimba before the movie was released, has been exposed as untrue.
  • The most congenial theory up til now has been that the creative staff, given a chance to produce a lion story, decided to make it somewhat of a tribute to the TV show they knew and loved. That theory is an attractive one, but fails to explain the extreme extent to which similarities to the earlier production appear in the later production. Lots of movie makers include tributes to those who went before them. A tribute doesn't leave people involved with the earlier production up in arms over being plagiarized.
So, here's my question: Was The Lion King was originally intended to be Disney's big-screen re-make of Kimba The White Lion, but when things didn't go as planned in regards to obtaining the rights to it, were changes made to transform it into "Disney's first animated feature based on an original story"?
  • Fact: The rights to Kimba the White Lion were tied up in legal battles for many years, beginning when the original production company, Mushi Productions, went bankrupt in 1973. NBC was forced by the FCC to sell its rights before its original contract expired in 1978. Nobody knew who had the US rights to Kimba from 1978 on. However, there was some sort of action in 1993 that led to the production of a new English-language version of Kimba -- the "1993 version" that has been shown around the world and is now on the air in the U.S.
  • Hearsay (although heard from several sources): Disney was right in the thick of the battle to obtain rights to Kimba.
  • Pieced together from various reports: Right Stuf International was prepared to release Kimba to home video in 1993, but this was delayed by the court action. And around the same time Disney announced they were delaying the release of Lion King.
Disney is not accustomed to losing its legal battles. So, now add this speculation into the picture: What if at one point the outcome was such a "sure thing" that it was considered safe to go ahead with the movie re-make idea? What if Disney's "sure thing" suddenly went in an unexpected direction? What if the court ruled, Solomon-like, that nobody owned the English-language rights to Kimba The White Lion? Faced with such options as going ahead with an un-copyrightable production or scrapping entirely the expensive production efforts that had already been done, would they choose to make a few strategic changes and then deny any knowledge of the original production?

Where do we go from here?

The big question after pondering that Lion King derived from Kimba is: What does it mean to us?
There is no doubt that Disney's movie has a different plot than the Kimba shows (this is common in any Disney adaptation). But The Lion King lacks what for me was the single greatest element in Kimba the White Lion: the relationship between humans and animals. This aspect has so much vital meaning for our world.

And yet, what do I hear within the words of Lion King fans? They identify with the lions in the movie. They bring that human-animal connection to the movie themselves. If, by way of this derivation controversy, Lion King fans discover Kimba The White Lion, and explore this connection further, then it's all good.

Kimba The White Lion can exist in the 21st century as The Lion King taken to the next level. Kimba's story lines, which involve the struggle to build strength of character, and the need for ALL life to be part of the great circle--animals AND humans, are things that most Lion King fans can enjoy.

The first time I heard the little white lion say that he needed a way to get humans to understand animals, my heart jumped for joy. The same thing can still happen for lots of other people, and thanks to The Lion King connection, lots of people now know about Kimba.

"Animation buffs believe Disney ripped off Kimba to create The Lion King. Disney insists similarities... are coincidence. If anything supports Disney's argument, it's the depth of the Japanese show. The Kimba episodes deal with justice and morality, never presuming children deserve only light entertainment." --PETER HONG, Los Angeles Times, May 19, 2002

I still feel is bears more resemblence to Hamlet, and (some parts of) Kimba appear to be based on it as well. Also that site is has an obvious bias and is not a fair source.

from Hamlet.org
Prince Hamlet of Denmark (Simba) is urged by his father’s Ghost (Mufasa) to avenge his murder at the hands of the dead king’s brother (Scar), now King Claudius; to make matters worse, Claudius has married the widow, Hamlet’s mother, Queen Gertrude. Denmark(Pride Rock) is under threat of invasion from young Fortinbras (The hyenas) , who seeks to regain lands lost to Hamlet’s father by Fortinbras’ father. Claudius sends word to the King of Norway (Fortinbras’ uncle) to curb Fortinbras’ aggression. In the meantime, Hamlet feigns madness (death) with his family and friends, including his beloved, Ophelia (Nala), sister to Laertes and daughter to Polonius....

See you can replace the names in paranthesis and come out with the basic story of Lion King. Maybe LK took elements from Kimba like the stampede but it was not a direct rip off. Not unless all love stories starting out with the people hating each other only to fall in love are rip-offs of Pride and Prejudice. So many a better word for Lion King and Simba is take off?
DameGreyWulf
No, rip-off
Haven't you looked at the other pictures? I've got more sources..
These all take fair views, in fact I once went into a tLK fansite that had the same things on it, and these proove that some of the creators thought this was going to be a remake of Kimba, and Simba was originally going to be white.
I know it's similar to Hamlet as well, but the point is that it's still ripping from Kimba and they need to put in the copyrights to Tezuka
