Not many people think highly of the sequel to The Lion King but this scene broke my heart the first time I saw it. Nuka was the oldest of his family, and as the oldest he was meant to look out for his siblings; obviously something he didn’t like doing at all because his little brother was the ‘chosen one’. He laments out loud why isn’t he the chosen one? He’s the oldest, he feels he’s the smartest, and his mother puts all of her (albeit twisted) love into his younger brother, bypassing him entirely. He would do absolutely anything to make his mother proud of him, to get one singular word of praise. That’s all he wanted, her to smile at him, to maybe even say she loved him because I doubt she ever said that to him.
He died trying to make her proud, he gave everything he had and I think too late she realized what she lost which only went to fuel her madness for revenge against Simba even more. Her first born, crushed to death by falling logs before her eyes and his last words to her is an apology. Not a goodbye, but an apology for not being good enough for her.
DON’T CARE WHAT YOU ALL SAY.
THIS WAS SADDER TO ME THAN MUFASA’S DEATH.
AND THEN IN THE UNCUT VERSION.
HE WAS HAPPY THAT HE GOT HER ATTENTION.
THAT WAS JUST SO MESSED UP
IT BROKE ME.
MY HEART WHY.
(And another one of the reasons that I will always love The Lion King 2 is that the villains were so humanized - which is funny considering that they’re, you know, lions - but THESE GUYS HERE. I FELT FOR THEM. AND ZIRA WAS A TERRIBLE
PERSONLION, BUT SHE STILL CARED.)
HOLD UP. THERE WAS AN UNCUT VERSION?! OH GAWD, I WANT TO KNOW THE DIFFERENCESSS
I need this uncut version
