Betrothed to Heir





Sarabi is Simba's mother, Mufasa's wife, Scar's sister-in-law and Kiara, Kion and Kopa's paternal grandmother. Not much of her relationship with Simba and Mufasa is shown (as when Simba is a cub, the film revolves mainly around his relationships with Mufasa and Nala) but from what is shown she seems to be very attached to them both.

Her name means "mirage" in Swahili.

She barely appears in the comic due to her small and reduced role in the Disney movies.

In the films Edit


The Lion KingEdit

She is devastated when she believes they both have been killed (in reality only Mufasa had been killed while Simba is alive) and is seen being comforted by Zazu while Scar is giving them a eulogy. She was horrified when Scar, having taken over the throne, then let the hyenas take over the Pride Lands and, along with all the other lionesses and animals from Pride Rock, apparently suffered as a result of Scar's selfish ways while he was king. Many years after Mufasa's death, Sarabi, who by now clearly dislikes Scar strongly, argued with him over what should be done for the good of all the animals in Pride Rock, with her insisting that they needed to move to a different place where food and water would be available. He refuses, afraid of losing his kingship in any place that isn't Pride Rock, and angrily strikes his sister-in-law for telling him he isn't "half the king Mufasa was." At which point Simba, who had watched this from afar, revealed  himself to them and defended his mother by roaring at Scar. She mistakes Simba for Mufasa at first, but is overjoyed all the same when she realizes her son is alive. She was horrified when Simba admitted he believed he was responsible for Mufasa's death and enraged when she later learned that it was in fact Scar who had murdered Mufasa and tricked Simba into believing he was the one responsible and was a big liar. She fights Scar's hyena army alongside Simba, Nala, the other lionesses, Timon, and Pumbaa and along with all the lionesses roars triumphantly when Simba does after finally defeating Scar who was killed by the hyenas for his betrayal.

The Lion King II: Simba's Pride Edit

Sarabi has non-speaking appearances in The Lion King II: Simba's Pride. She is first seen when Simba faces Zira for the first time, and Sarabi is seen standing by her son.
