They have captured hearts,
And we have captured them.
Even the powerful can be canned.
All due to there need for food,
Of which soul taking is a nesscaity.
The pale color a rarity of its kind,
There is beauty on the outside,
But what is felt within?

That is a powerful poem. It really was meaningful and impactful. When I saw the title, I did think about Kimba the White Lion a bit, but I know it’s not about that 60s anime.
Thank you! Is that the one people thought Disney used? I don’t really know enough about it to have an opinion on it.
No problem. Actually, Disney still denies stealing from that anime even to this day even with the evidence out there. Speaking of Kimba, I do mention one character in a blog post who got ripped off the hardest. https://iridiumeye.wordpress.com/2021/04/06/top-7-characters-that-fans-are-reluctant-to-call-blatant-ripoffs/
Just looked at it, yeah it looks like they totally stole it. It’s worse than I thought.
Thanks for checking it out. While there are differences with there being a human presence in Kimba and how there are no humans in The Lion King (saying nothing how that movie and Tarzan make Disney 0-2 for Native African human character representation), there were some similar plot points, characters and even identical scenes. My jaw dropped seeing the Claw character because there is no way Disney came up with Scar by themselves for example.
