  • 2. Animated films has always attracted people attention by using different methods of animation, genres, story lines, characters and others. In this kind of movies producers try to pace with animation arts to provide pleasant and enjoyable moments for watchers. Many experts believe that the animation revolution began in 1937 with the release of ‘’Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs’’, but since those days, technology has changed very fast in this industry which helps producers to make animated films easier, faster and also with higher quality, however many people thinks that older animated movies were more effective. Two of the most famous films in this industry are ‘’The Lion King’’ and ‘’Kung Fu Panda’’ and they have been very successful movies in history of this genre, but these two products have some similarities and many differences such as producing process, scene, atmosphere, and storyline. First of all it’s obvious that these films are produced in different ways and that’s because of the year that they released. ‘’The Lion king’’ came to the cinemas for the first time in 1994 which means that the technology of making animations on that time was not as strong as year 2008, when ‘’Kung Fu Panda’’ released, so the process of making them. The other thing about ‘’The Lion King’’ is that all character movements are based on real animals in nature which is not the same in the other film, so the producers started to create this unforgettable animation after many researches on animals. In these kind of movies producers try to attract attentions by making their animation funny for people who watches which it is obvious in ‘’Kung Fu Panda’’. This film is full of funny scenes that makes everyone laughing, such as the final part when Po fights with Tai Lung which is really hilarious. However funny scenes in ‘’The Lion King’’ is
  • 3. less and watchers cannot experiencethose fun moments as they experience in ‘’Kung Fu Panda’’. So ‘’The Lion King’’ is more serious than the other movie, for example one of the scenes at the beginning that Simba’s father is death and he asks for help but no one answer him which even makes sensitive people crying. So the scenes are different in these animations. Next factor is atmosphere in animated movies which enact an important role in storylines, and these two films have two different atmospheres. In ‘’The Lion King’’ watchers can see kind of real wild life where all animals are living in jungle without any construction and many other terms, but this means that it’s only more realistic than some other animated movies about animals. However ‘’Kung Fu Panda’’ doesn’t show this atmosphere to watchers, and in this film characters have some human characteristics such as Po who works in a restaurant and the Kung Fu club where those legendary animals train. Furthermore, the other difference about these two films are their storyline. In ‘’Kung Fu Panda’’ the main character, Po is a fat panda and a Kung Fu lover who always dreams about becoming a Kung Fu legend and be called as dragon warrior and at the end his dream comes true. This animation’s message is that if you want to achieve something you have to believe yourself. However the storyline in ‘’The Lion King’’ is different and Simba is a little lion who lives in a royal family of lions, but he lost his father because of his uncle, then when he grow up, he decides to take revenge and at the end he becomes successful, so this film try to say that badness doesn’t stay forever. These are the things that separate these films’ storyline and messages.
  • 4. Finally after contrasting ‘’Kung Fu Panda’’ and ‘’The Lion King’’ and trying to find differenceslike storyline, atmosphere and others that separate these two products in animation world, it should be mentioned that these are just general differences and there are many of them after going through each point. Of course there is not any two animated film that look exactly the same and at least they have few things that make them different and this is also true about these movies, however they are both placed as two phenomena animation works in the history.
