A walk with grandma by TLK-Ileana A walk with grandma by TLK-Ileana
Sorry for the inactivity period, been really busy.
Sarabi, taking a stroll with little Kiara! Love to draw these two together.
I wish Sarabi would've been featured in the second film. Sadly, she mysteriously dissapeared.

Too cute! :) I read somewhere some time ago that Sarabi wasn't in the sequel because her voice actress died.

She was there, she just didn't talk

Kiara is soo tiny. I love that

Also, Sarabi moved from priderock since Simba is now taking over. It's one of the lioness rules.
Shippuden23 Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2014
TLK doesn't really follow all of the rules of the real animal Kingdom. In fact, the ignore most of them (I don't think people would find the idea of Simba mating with his own mother or male lions killing the cubs that aren't theirs very appealing).

The real reason why she wasn't in the second film was because her voice actress died.

Oh Kiara is so cute. I think Sarabi was in that group of lioness when Kiara was having her first hunt. I think she was the one that said, "My how you've grown." as Kiara walked past. 
Cianna200 Featured By Owner Nov 30, 2014
Well actually, Sarafina said "My how much you've grown." Sadly, Sarabi did not appear in the lion king 2 because her voice actor died according to the creators. :)

I would have liked to see her in the second film too, but the voice actress for Sarabi sadly passed away before they made it, and I think they made the right choice by not trying to replace her like they did with Zazu's actor.

That is adorable! Grandma taking Princess Kiara for a walk!
miudream Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
yeah it is sad and Disney said the elderly lion in the second film that everyone thought was sarabi ("my how you've grown") wasn't. Sarabi passed away peacefully from old age, Disney said.

It's sad the sarabi's voice actor passed away :( 
But, I'm thinking: Wouldn't they just get another voice actor, like most people do? 

Gorgeous drawing by the way  <3 
Krispina-The-Derp Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2014
I don't think there would of been any other voice actress that would match Sarabi's voice

I mean if James Earl Jones died they can't replace his unique voice.....right?
AJRanch Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I guess so :3

Yeah that always used to upset me too - I believe it is because the voice actress passed away before production of the second movie began :/ sad...

Yes hello I am the one that accidentally used this for a lineart.
I didn't mean to do any harm I only drew the lineart cause I friend was asking me for one.
They sent me the picture asking if I could make it because their aren't any good linarts out there.
I would like to keep the lineart up, if that's okay?
I will give you full credit and link it back here.
But if you rather it not be up I will take it down.
I'm very sorry, I give my sincerest apologies.
TLK-Ileana Featured By Owner Apr 17, 2014
Hello, I appreciate that you got back to me. I don't allow my art to be traced and/or posted on the internet. The only use I'd allow is personal. So, if you're tracing my art for learning or referencing purposes that's fine as long as you keep it for yourself, but otherwise I'd prefer you took it down.


Mio-Yoshio Featured By Owner May 7, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Of course!
Thank you for letting me know!
Sorry I didn't know I'll take it down immediately!

Guys, I know why she wasn't in the second film. Her voice actor had a heart attack, I believe.
xSenkai Featured By Owner Mar 8, 2014

Hmm maybe they should had got an other voice actor to voice old sarabi but I don't think they would find any older voices similar to the young voice
DisneyFan-01 Featured By Owner Jul 15, 2013  Hobbyist Filmographer
Sarabi didn't appear in the second film mainly because her voice actress died. In story wise, it's my guess that she was killed off by Zira.

this makes me so sad!!!!!!

Sarabi wasn't in Lion King 2 because the voice actor passed away a few years after the making of the first film. :(

the reason why Sarabi wasn't featured in the second film is because her voice actor died before they started the production

Nala2 Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2013
She shouldn't have disapeared in what Disney wanted TLK2 to be, but the actress that was doing her voice died, and then they had to change ALL the story to make sure that Sarabi wouldn't appear again. (By the way, they planned to show Kopa, Mheetu and others but as they had to change the story, they disapeared too.)
