Disney’s The Lion King has been a favourite since its release, but a video of a dog watching the live-action version of the film has now gone viral.
In a TikTok video, a dog named Maya is seen watching the scene where Simba is asked to leave after the death of his father King Mufasa by his uncle Scar. While the dog was fine while the lion was on the screen but when the hyenas emerge to chase the lion cub, the dog also makes a run for it.
The dog’s reaction was filmed by its owner, who can be heard laughing off-camera. The video got nearly 7 million likes on TikTok alone.
The video was shared on Twitter by former basketball player Rex Chapman and many said they felt sorry for the dog.

Pause this at 16 seconds and tell me that hyena isn’t coming out of that screen. I’d run too
