BuzzFeed created this hilarious Lion King and royal family mashup GIF series to celebrate the birth Kate Middleton and Prince William's royal baby George. A creative juxtaposition of animation and pop culture, these royal family GIFs spoof the iconic birth of Simba in Disney's Lion King film.
While GIFs have exploded in popularity over the Internet, it's no surprise that a GIF was made to commemorate the iconic birth of royal baby George. This Lion King-inspired take on Kate Middleton's birth is comical and well-executed. Kate Middleton has been transformed into the cartoon lioness Nala, Prince William into Mufasa, Queen Elizabeth into Rafiki and baby George into Simba. Together, the animal-inspired royal family acts out the birth of Simba -- now baby George -- on the famous Pride Rock.
