First Queen of the Pridelands by kohu-arts First Queen of the Pridelands by kohu-arts
:iconwolf-sophie: mentioned Sarabi in my Nala - Queen of the Pridelands picture, and I felt a little guilty. Sarabi's one of my favorite characters from TLK (I was quite sad she wasn't in SP), especially when she's standing up to Scar at the end. So here you go. :3 Sarabi, the original queen of the Pridelands.

Sarabi is (c) Disney.

Aww Sarabi! She looks so happy! I was so sad when I didn't see her on TLK 2.. Her and Sarafina too. Wonder what happened to them..

Sarabi's voice actress died, so they decided not to include her in TLK II, sort of to honor her. :3 But I agree, I would have liked seeing both of them there.

Ooh I didn't know that.. What a pity.. So we can assume that Sarabi actually died in the series too. She already seemed (at least to be) like an old lioness, plus, during Scar's reign, it's clear all of them had gone through a hard time. And Sarabi, being the caring lioness she is, would have let the others eat more than her. So I guess that must have taken a toll on her boby.. As for Sarafina.. I guess she would have run away after her dear friend's death.

Just my theory. :]

Yeah, she probably did ... sadly enough. ;-; And she does age quite a bit from beginning to end (she just looks much older). I don't know if we ever see Sarafina when Simba returns to Pride Rock ... it could be that she left/died before Nala became an adult.

Sarabi has always been my favorite TLK character since the movie had come out. I never knew why, she was just really pretty or something lol. But now that I'm older I know it's because she's strong and brave. She stayed strong for her pride when she lost her mate and son in one day. Not to mention the "new members" of the pride. She could have run away, or just laid there until she passed herself. But she knew she couldn't do that. Mufasa wouldn't want her to. I am so getting too far into thought here lol.

She's an amazing character. I think it's a pity we don't get to see more of her ... I know it makes sense since she'd not more than a supporting character, but she has such a strong role and presence throughout the film. :) Sarabi wasn't one of my favorites as a child, but now that I'm grown, she's own of my favorites. Strangely, Mufasa was a favorite of mine when I was a kid ... and now he's one of my least favorite, lol. xD

I read somewhere that Sarabi wasn't shown in further movies due to the passing of her voice actor (Madge Sinclair). But yes, it would have been nice to see her in Part II, especially. :)

A couple people commented that awhile ago too; I hadn't realized that. :) It makes perfect sense to want to honor her memory and not find another voice actress.

Sarabi wasn't in the second film because the actress who gave voice died, and Disney decided not put Sarabi in the second film

Was reading through your comments here, I had no idea her VA had passed away! stupid cancer! :( so sad...I'm not a hardcore TLK fan, but I always liked Sarabi, so graceful and kind, but also undeniably strong and brave, this is a lovely pic.
