Trivia: At several points during the movie, such as when Kiara and Kovu are running from the rhinos, music that would later be used in Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl can be heard playing.
Trivia: There are several deleted scenes for this movie, two of which would have made the movie much darker if they had been left in. At the end of the movie, when Zira is hanging over the water, she was originally going to let go on purpose, which was later changed to her becoming scared and reaching for help. Earlier in the movie, when Nuka dies, he originally had an additional voice line. Instead of dying immediately after saying he tried his best and being hushed by Zira who cups his muzzle in her paw, he would have looked up at her and given a faint smile while saying "Well... I finally got your attention... Didn't I?", at which Zira would've smiled and he would repeat "Didn't I?" one last time before sighing and dying.
