INRODUCTION
The film The Lion King and the play Macbeth both have totally different stories but they are similar in their characters. An
archetype can be a symbol, image, or motif that appears time after time in a piece of literature. When related to a person it can be called as "character archetypes". Macbeth and The Lion King can be compared on the basics of their similar character archetypes which are of the hero, the villain, and the earth mother.
"Ah yes, the past can hurt. But the returning back home because that is what encouraged them to face the truth" - Rafiki
The quote above is from the movie The Lion King. This quote is said by Rafiki the monkey who motivates Simba to go back and fight with Scar. This quote relates to both the movies Macbeth and Lion King as it relates to both the charcters Macduf and Simba to return home and face their challenges.
THE HERO
"Besides this is my kingdom. If I don't fight for it, who will?"
- Simba ( The Lion King)
I see thee compass'd with thy kingdom's pearl, That speak my salutation in their minds; Whose voices I desire aloud with mine: Hail, King of Scotland!
-Macduff (5.8.57-59)
The hero is the most common archetype you find in every play or a movie. The protagonist here is Simba from the movie The Lion King and Macduff from Macbeth. Both the characters are trying to run away from their problems. In Macbeth, Macduff faces many problems which are caused due to Macbeth such as the murder of his wife and his son. In the Lion King, Simba faces similar challenges related to the death of his father Mufasa and then his uncle Scar taking over the kingdom and asking him to run away. But both the characters in the end realize their mistakes and go back to make up for the faults and face the challenges.
The Villain
Glamis thou art, and Cawdor, and shalt be
What thou art promised. Yet do I fear thy nature;
It is too full o' th' milk of human kindness
To catch the nearest way. Thou wouldst be great,
Art not without ambition, but without
The illness should attend it.
- Lady Macbeth (1.5.15-20)
"Mufasa's death was a terrible tragedy; but to lose Simba, who had barely begun to live... ..For me it is a deep personal loss. So it is with a heavy heart that I assume the throne. Yet, out of the ashes of this tragedy, we shall rise to greet the dawning of a new era, in which lion and hyena come together, in a great and glorious future!"
- Scar (The Lion King)
In every movie or a book we come across a villain. In Macbeth and The Lion King, Lady Macbeth and Scar and are the villains respectively. Throughout Macbeth, we see that Lady Macbeth has been an instigator to Macbeth and motivated him towards evil. As part of being a good wife she should not have let her husband go toward the evil path. Where as we see in the movie Lion King, Scar wants to be the king, but he knows that it is not possible because of his brother Mufasa and his son Simba who will take the thrown after him. So he kills Mufasa and makes Simba believe that he was responsible for his father's death and asks him to run away. By doing this, then he further goes and tells everyone that he is going to be the king.
THE EARTH MOTHER
If you were half the king Mufasa was, you..
.
-Sarabi (The Lion King)
I hope, in no place so unsanctified
Where such as thou mayst find him.
- Lady Macduff
The earth mother is the character who cares for her children all the time and teaches her kids right from wrong. In Macbeth, Lady Macduff and in The Lion King, Sarabi are the earth mothers. In Macbeth, Lady Macduff is very loving and caring mother to her son. She has a very strong relationship with her son and does everything she can for him. In the Lion King, Sarabi, the wife of Mufasa and the mother of Simba is also very good.
She care a lot for her son and is very
happy on his return.
FINAL REFLECTION
I chose these 6 particular quotations because I believe that they were the best quotes to illustrate and explain these character archetypes. They best described the nature of all the characters and gave a clear picture of all of them.
Character Archetypes make connections in every piece of literature. They are used to depict various characteristics in a story. I choose the three characteristics which are: The hero, the villain, and the earth mother.
To illustrate the theme of the quotations
I used pictures and graphics from the Disney film "The Lion King" along with pictures from Macbeth. These images made the my illustrations more interesting and appealing to the viewers eyes. All the images also were with their respective quotation to help show how each archetype was depicted in the films and the play.
