"Paintings and Predictions"


Nala's father is saved from a fall by the Lion Guard of his time

When Bunga steals Rafiki's staff, he stumbles upon paintings of Nala's father as a cub and mistakes him for Kion. Curious, Bunga touches the paintings with Rafiki's staff, bringing them to life, and watches in horror as Nala's father falls from a tree. A frightened Bunga proceeds to protect Kion from every tree they encounter, terrified that Rafiki's paintings predict the future.

Later, Rafiki reveals that the painting is in fact of Nala's father. In the past, Nala's father had fallen from a tree branch and been saved by the Lion Guard of his day.
