The Lion King’s Pride Rock – this one you can’t visit
For the end here is the opposite case. The myth buster sort of. Read what co-director have to say about the Pride Rock.
“We took a trip to Kenya to research the animals and the landscape for the movie,” co-director Roger Allers says “There are certain things lifted from the landscape, but we used a variety of inspirations. Many people try to say, ‘Pride Rock is based on this mountain here,’ but they are wrong. An artist in Burbank invented Pride Rock.”
