The Lion King

Plot hole: Scar tells the pack he didn't make it to the gorge in time to help Mufasa. However Zazu was with them at at the gorge. He could have easily told Serabi or any of the other lions on the numerous times he spoke with them, exposing Scar.

Suggested correction: Actually, Zazu wouldn't honestly say that Scar was lying; he left Scar at the gorge, but for all he knows, when Scar talks about not getting to the gorge in time, Scar could just mean that he couldn't find a safe path into the gorge to help Mufasa and Simba escape.

So Scar would say he couldn't get to Mufassa in time. Not the gorge.

Other mistake: When Pumba is singing and they show him as a baby warthog farting in the water killing the butterfly, it is actually a baby Red River hog that is portrayed.

Trivia: There's an homage to Beauty and the Beast as Timon starts singing: "It is with deepest pride and greatest pleasure that we welcome you tonight. And now we invite you to relax let us pull up a chair as the dining room proudly presents your dinner!" They then show Pumba as the dinner to the hyenas. Pumba was the distraction when Simba came back to the Pridelands. (01:45:00)
