Biography

The Lion King II: Simba's Pride

KiaraKovuConcept

Binti was supposed to appear in Simba's Pride alongside Zazu as his girlfriend and later mate,[2] but her character didn't get too far past the character design stage, despite her having twenty different designs (presumably not available on the web) for her all drawn up. One, however, seems to have survived, in which she is running from a rhino stampede alongside Kovu and Kiara.

Personality and traits

Leeves brings voice to a flirtatious bird named Binti in the upcoming sequel to The Lion King. She obviously loves creating someone completely different.
―Binti's intended personality
According to the above quote, Binti was supposed to a very flirtatious bird.

Trivia

  • Zazu has a girlfriend in the comic Zazu the Heartbreaker, which would've made Binti his second love interest.
  • Binti would have been the first female hornbill to appear on-screen.
  • An archived article in the San Antonio Express reports that actress Jane Leeves was originally going to voice Binti in The Lion King II: Simba's Pride.[3]
