I really wonder how do people see "so many plot holes"? Because I can see ONLY TWO and even they are relative.
A plot hole is something that causes the plot または a part of the plot to not add up または to not make sense. These two 映画 don't have such, as all あなた have to do is pay attention to what is 発言しました and how it is said, and at some points to use common sense.
1.) The cub's デザイン and the ceremony.
But officially that is not a plot hole. As ディズニー has made it official it is "Fluffy"/Kiara in the movie universe. As in introduced no one else in the 映画 - basically we just have to accept that...
In the original script (which was started 2-3 years before Simba's Pride was released) there were no Outlanders. It was only Zira (then known as Bianca), Kovu, and the three hyenas. In this script, Kovu was Scar's son. This was changed because if Zira was Scar's mate, then why would she team up with the hyenas, who killed Scar. They also had to change the fact of Kovu being Scar's son because that would be bordering on incest. (It would make Kovu and Kiara 秒 cousins.)
Kathleen Turner was originally going to be the voice of Zira. Christian Slater was going to do the voice of Adult Kovu.
