So the other day, I read the original script of the Lion King- what it was going to be like before they changed it to what it is now. It is actually pretty horrifying haha. It contains incest and a heckuva lot of violence (Scar snaps Mufasa's neck, and it says you can actually hear the bone crack for example). Totally not kiddy friendly, but man, it would be interesting to see how it would have turned out.
One of the major flaws I saw with it though is that there were waaay too many characters, it got confusing VERY quickly, something which is bad for a film (not so bad in something like an ongoing TV series though). It was probably a good idea that they scrapped most of them.
Anyways, at the end of the script it says that Simba has a son, and the son actually speaks (although the cub is never named), so I believe that the cub at the end of Lion King is actually a boy even if it is never mentioned. I think it was always intended to be a boy. But yeah
Anyways, onto other stuff- I went to the zoo yesterday to do lots of life drawings. It was freezing cold, my hands were chilled up and I could barely draw but I still got loads of them done, and I also got some great rubbings of life-sized tiger and cheetah paw prints. Also, I got a giant tortoise print, a red panda and a pelican
Luckily they all fit into my A5 book.
I'm thinking of buying a year pass for the zoo- I'm a student so I only pay £37GBP and I can get in there for free as many times as I want all year. Then, I'll only have to pay for the train, and I can do life drawing from animals as much as I want
So that's it for now! Hope everyone has a great Easter!
