The Best Scene in The Lion King

Real quick today, I thought I’d talk about this one.

OK the truth is, the entire sequence in which Rafiki meets Simba, talks to him, shows him sky Mufasa, and then hits him with a stick is probably the best part of the movie – it’s likely that said sequence is what made The Lion King so iconic. Now, that’s just my opinion, of course, but as always, I’m entirely, objectively, unquestionably correct.

But this scene is still my favourite. I like Rafiki’s home, with the fruit hanging up and making cool wooden wind chime sounds when he passes. I like how he cracks open this fruit and twists his one arm up like that while eating it.

I love that he learns things just by looking at, sniffing, and swirling seeds that blew in. I like the monkey quality to his laughing and also the background theme because it’s just really good music.

I don’t think I’ve ever been able to watch this scene without smiling. I like it; it’s a good one.
