When Lion cub Bahati was only a month-old, the Dallas Zoo observed and recorded her behaviours in video sent to Disney, to help design Simba in the live action remake
A zoo in Dallas, Texas, revealed that one of their cubs served as the model for Simba in the Disney remake of its 1994 hit The Lion King.
Sharing a video of the adorable cub on social media, which gathered 950 shares and more than 2,000 likes, the Dallas Zoo revealed it had sent videos of Bahati to Disney animators two years ago.   
The cub, named Bahati, now a two-year-old fierce lioness, was only a month-old cub when Disney animators started to observe her in order to make the furry hero of their live action effort as true to life as possible. 
'The world's most famous lion cub may have gotten some of his moves from our very own Bahati,' the Zoo wrote. When Bahati was just a month old, we provided Disney with video of her movements for their animation team to use for motion and behavior reference when designing Simba in The Lion King,' it went on. 
'From walking on wobbly new legs, to licking milk droplets off of her face, we captured every moment, no matter how small.'
