Update 20.07.2019. Added a watermark being fed up with art thieves.

In my theory Kiara and Kion were littermates. Kiara was the firstborn. However, at first, Kion was chosen to be the future King because he was a boy.  And he was the cub shown in the end of first movie. Then the great Kings told Rafiki that Kion was chosen to be the leader of the Lion guard as Kiara was girl, what's more she was given a special mission. So, the other presentation was held and Kiara was chosen to be the future Queen.

Hope you like! :) (Smile)

I like that theory. It makes far more sense!

Kiara wasn't the firstborn.

That cub, from the end of the 1st Lion King film, is a boy and Kiara's presentation is only at the beginning of the sequel.

Here are links that explains the difference of the cubs from 'The Lion King'.

Besides, someone on YouTube made a video that also explains the difference of the cubs.

Anyway, I like the picture.

Just to let you know old trailers for Simba’s Pride did use the presentation from movie 1 for Kiara. So whether you like it or not in canon Fluffy turned into Kiara

Only reason the presentation and design are different now is because different animators and the fact they didn't want a Simba clone most likely, hence why Kiara isn't a exact clone.
Just my two cents

I know that most people consider the cub from the end of the first movie to be Kopa the cub from the book.
But Disney still hasn't mentioned anything about him. I think they just came up with the idea of giving Simba and Nala a cub but didn't created a design for him/her at that time. Later they created Kiara. But originally it was going to be her, I guess.
Officially Kiara is the firstborn (at lest if we talk about her and Kion) and that is said in the TLG series.
In my theory the cub presented in the first movie is not Kiara as well and I've mentioned that. It's Kion. But still it's just my idea why the cubs look different not a canon version.
Thank you!:) (Smile) Heart
