We Are One by Panther85 We Are One by Panther85
Edit: I made some changes to the shading.

Gift for hey101hey, he wanted a pic of the royal family :aww:. He also wrote something for it:

'Family.

I never got to know my dad very well. For the longest time I blamed myself for his death. I left the ones I loved the most to live with complete strangers. They were good to me, but something felt missing. 

When I became king, I had no idea what I was doing. Pride Rock, and the pridelands were in shambles. The lionesses were all fatigued and wounded. A good king needs a strong queen by his side, which is what I had. 

It wasn't long after that I became a father myself. I was as nervous as can be. When I first looked in her beautiful eyes, I knew that a miracle occured. She was so small, very fragile, full of potential.

Then, my son arrived. It was then I realized that I had to be the best king I could be to protect them.

We are family. We are one.'

Ah, I love this, they all look so cute! :D Especially Kiara and Simba sharing that little father-daughter moment there ^^

The drawing style, too; it looks so much like the classic movie, it's perfect 8D

I love their father-daughter moments since Simba's Pride came out, especially during the "We Are One" song.

Glad it look like it. Thank you :D

This amazing!
For those who are wondering where is kion. In the lion king 2 simba's pride. One theory is that kion left and started his own pride. Since real male lion cubes leave their prides when their about 3 - 5 years old. To go on their own and start a pride. Since the lion king is sort of a monarchy (kings & queens). One thing I don't get is, since Kion is simbs only son. He shouldn't he be king since the next male becomes king?

I HAVE NOTHING AGAINST KAIRI OK ( this is just a thought)

Well, if we're going with real lion behavior, yes, male lions leave their natal pride when the get old enough to take care of themselves. The problem with this in TLK/TLG is that I don't think it applies to royal sons, since they would be either the future king or the leader of the guard, both very important positions in the Pride Lands. I see no reason for Kion to stop being the guard when he grows up, in fact, the role of the guard is usually started when they are old and mature enough to take it, Kion (and aparently Scar) were exceptions in that they took said responsability when they were just cubs. So Kion should still be the leader of the guard for many years into adulthood. As for his absence in Simba's Pride, my bet is that he was out on a mission during the second half of the movie, that or TLG is retconning SP and the events of Kiara reuniting with Kovu as adults will play differently now.

As for monarquies in real life, there are different kinds, not all of them go with the "oldest son is the heir" rule, sure it's the most common, but by no means the only one. Some others go with the more simple "oldest child, regardless of gender, is the heir". And really, even if they didn't exist in real life, that doesn't mean Disney can't make their own rules for their Lion King universe.

An interesting note, if they really follow real lion behavior more accurately, neither Kiara nor Kion would be Simba's heir. Kiara would be part of the pride her whole life but wouldn't rule, while Kion would be kicked out of the Pride Lands by his own father, and be forced to find his own pride to rule.

Yes, Kopa, but those books are not canon, so in The Lion Guard universe, only Kiara and Kion exist.

Well, he does exist. I understand it might be hard for some to accept a new character in a franchise after so many years, but Disney created him and he's here now.

Still a mystery, well, assuming The Lion Guard and Simba's Pride are part of the same story. If TLG is retconning SP and it's retelling the events but with Kion in it, then I guess when Kiara and Kovu reunite as adults it will play differently than in the movie.

Lion Guard isn't canon
Reply
:iconpanther85:
Panther85 Featured By Owner Feb 4, 2017   Digital Artist
We don't know for sure, but being made by the official Disney team and the way the producers talked about "Return of the Roar" in that D23 Expo in 2015, they seemed to consider it canon, so that's most likely the case.

:iconphantomjma:
PhantomJMA Featured By Owner Feb 4, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
If it is, then that would make Lion King 2 non-canon

Panther85 Featured By Owner Edited Feb 4, 2017   Digital Artist
There's a bit of debate in there, and I admit, I'm not exactly sure which is the case. The way I see it, there are three posibilities:

1. TLG is taking place in the same continuity as Simba's Pride and Kion's absence in the movie is due to his job as the guard and perhaps being on a mission out of the Pride Lands during the second half of the movie.

2. TLG is retconning SP, keeping the same main events and characters from it like the Outsiders, but now with Kion in there, making SP non-canon.

3. TLG and SP are simply two alternate sequels/interpretations of the events after the first movie and both are canon (it's possible, it has happened in other franchises)

Well, when it comes to the animation and art style, the original film is by far superior. No tv series is ever going to have the same budget and quality as a feature film. That's why we can't forget that there's a different standard for a feature film than there is for a tv series.
