Continuity mistake: Toward the end of the song "One Of Us" when Kovu is running away and the birds are chasing him, Simba is standing on Pride Rock looking down at Kovu. In the next shot of Pride Rock, Simba is gone, but in the next shot, Simba is back, in the same position as in the first shot.
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.
Zira: Kovu. Move.
Simba: Stand aside.
Kiara: Daddy, this has to stop.
Zira: You're even weaker than I thought. Get out of the way.
Kovu: You'll never hurt Kiara or Simba. Not while I'm here.
Simba: Stay out of this.
Kiara: A wise king once told me, "We are one." I didn't understand him then. Now I do.
Simba: But - they.
Kiara: Them? Us? Look at them. They are us. What differences do you see?
Rafiki: Oh Mufasa, you've been up there too long! Your head is in the clouds.
Mufasa: Well done, my son. We are one.
Question: At the end of the "We Are One" song, Simba and Kiara have returned to pride rock around sunset. Fine, fine, but the thing that's been bugging me for years is: Kiara stares intently at something, causing Simba to frown and look up to see what she sees. He seems to chuckle, then turns back to her. What is it that they were looking at before he says "You'll understand some day" and why is it there?
Question: If Scar chose Kovu, why is Kovu not the same age as Simba? Instead, he's the same age as Kiara, but Kiara is born only after Scar's death. Even if Scar chose Kovu say, a week prior to his death, Kovu would still be older than Kiara, and Scar would likely have had the pride of Outland lionesses at his back, rather than the Hyenas that killed him. Instead, the only lionesses we see are the Prideland lionesses. If Scar was able to lead the outlanders as their king with Zira at his side, I'm rather confused about his desire for Pride rock in the first place.
