You might think that Simba and friends are still roaming the African savanah, but like many large mammals they have been hunted to minimal populations and their habitat decimated by human encroachment.
It was inevitable, given the gross overconsumption of nature by humanity, and we might not really care because lions are “over there” and we never see them anyway, but it is still sad.
Maybe your grandchildren will never see a lion as wild and caged populations will lose vitality and expire. Maybe you think it’s OK because a virtual lion is better. But it is still sad.
