I had read that on Wikipedia earlier, too... It kind of has dark implications, since that has to mean he either dies before the second movie, or he leaves (or is run out of) the Pride Lands, never to be spoken of by his family again. Even Scar stuck around when he had an older sibling, though, so there doesn't seem to be any real reason to willingly leave... My headcanon is going to say he was shot by hunters for his 'unique' pelt. XD
xD I am actually very SURE, they will end the Movie with having him still around the Family. Without explaining anything. Bastards. Maybe he and his Group have to do Stuff outside of the Pridelands.... who knows o3o Sucks anyway. I wanted it so badly to happen after Movie 2.
Eh, good point, and even though I'm excited for the lion guard I was kinda hoping that would be the solution since that's the only thing I can think of that made sense. X'D Or, y'know, he could go off on his own or something.
