They learned from the best
Before you go on blaming Disney for unoriginality, you should know they have also been copied from more than once. One example is no other than the two times academy award winner Frozen. As it turns out, Frozen greatly resembles a Canadian animated film called The Legend of Sarila, which goes by the title “Frozen Land” in the American version.
Again, as in the case of The Lion King, the plots aren’t identical, but there are some suspicious similarities that would make you raise an eyebrow. Except this time, it was Disney that sued Phase 4 Films for their film, which was released after Frozen with a rather similar title and logo.
