Just to piggyback off of that, we wonder what this supposed zombie’s story must have been. Did someone try to bring back the dead because of an inheritance? A connected theory is that the cave of wonders belongs to a former owner of the lamp. Perhaps a cunning swindler tried to rob this person of their riches.
A desperate family member could have tried to bring the dead back and change the will? Sounds a little far-fetched, we know, but aren’t imagining backstories so fun?
Nala’s Curious Pupils
It might be a decade (or two) since watching the original The Lion King and the detail of this theory might need a revisit to the movie to be taken into consideration. Scar and Nala’s eye colors are almost identical – a bright, radiant green.
Now there are only two male lions in the movie. She cannot be Mufasa’s daughter as Simba and she becomes partners. This leaves the possibility open that Scar sired Nala! Plot twist after plot twist.
Genie’s Resurrection Resistance
When Genie is running down a list of the wish list no-nos, he mentions that he is unable to resurrect any dead people. Should that rather be unwilling to as he further mentions “it’s not a pretty sight”.
This would lead one to think that the Genie has indeed done or at least witnessed this. This further would lead to knowing that there are zombies roaming the land as a result of Genie’s past indiscretions.
Mushu Saves the Day
There are some serious Mushu fans. In another undercover ploy, Mushu falsifies a letter from Fa Zhou, Mulan’s father, requesting soldiers to help with the battle. The regiment that is sent out very fortuitously encounters the marauding Hun army that is aiming to attack the Chinese kingdom.
The resulting skirmish is the deciding factor that allows for the final victory for the Empire. This makes Mushu’s act of forgery the deciding factor for the victorious outcome and ultimately him the true savior of the Empire.
Genie’s Questionable Loyalties
The Genie has his hands full of granting wishes. Staying neutral with the power that he has may lead to some questionable moral choices. Fans have noted that he never takes into account the outcome of opposing forces and grants wishes freely. Most strikingly, he doesn’t alert Aladdin to the intentions of Jafar.
Being aware of them, he could suggest more suitable wishes for Aladdin to make in order to overcome Jafar’s insidious plans. Instead, the Genie fulfills all of Jafar’s ultimately destructive wishes.
