Most of us have watched The Lion King and enjoyed it thoroughly, and with the newest movie remake out, people have started comparing both versions of the movie. Inspired by shows like Beastars on Netflix and TaleSpin on Disney +, a freelance illustrator from Los Angeles, Marco Bernard, decided to give the movie characters a twist. During the lockdown, he started working on a project titled “Lion King: Pride Land Characters” as he set out to reimagine the movie characters as humanlike as possible.

Here’s what the artist told Bored Panda:

"I got the idea when the world was on lockdown back in March. I had spent time watching shows like Beastars on Netflix and TaleSpin on Disney + and I thought it would be cool to imagine what Scar would look like as an anthropomorphic character. When seeing the positive reactions after posting the piece to Instagram, I decided to start a series and I drew a new character every day. The series was called “Pridelands.” I imagined these characters to exist in a modern society with 21st-century hobbies and occupations. I also placed them in a dramatic setting—a world that was riddled with crime and deception."

Although I've never watched any other movie in the Lion King franchise besides the first, I'm pretty sure that's Kiara and Kovu.

I like this one. I can see Kiara dressing quite tomboyish.
