Freelance illustrator Marco Bernard shows through his eyes how the well-known characters from the Lion King movies would look if they had human characteristics. Think of shows like TaleSpin and DuckTales or movies like Zootopia. If you compare those animals to the characters in The Lion King, you can tell they have different lifestyles. First of all, Lion King characters don’t wear human clothes, for example. But thanks to Marco, we get to see what that would look like with a modern twist. Marco was first struck with the idea to start the so-called Pridelands artwork project while binge-watching TaleSpin, a '90s cartoon on Disney+, and Beastars, an anime show on Netflix. Scroll down to see how Marco redrew the rest of The Lion King cast.
