After all, what does “Hakuna Matata” mean?

As one of the most memorable songs in the “Lion King” franchise, the phrase “Hakuna Matata” also has an important meaning. Find it out!

This Monday, the 29th, Disney released the first trailer for the film “Mufasa: The Lion King”, a live-action film that promises to present the story of Mufasa, Simba’s father, delving a little deeper into his relationship with his brother , Scar, in addition to his rise as King of the Savannah. Look!

The production, which is a prequel to the 2019 live-action “The Lion King”, is scheduled to premiere in the United States on December 20th. The release date in Brazilian cinemas, however, has not yet been revealed.

Both live-actions are inspired by the classic 1994 Disney animation, which is also titled “The Lion King”, and follow the story of the lion Simba, who ends up fleeing the savannah after his terrible uncle Scar makes him feel guilty for death of Mufasa, his father, and stealing his throne.

While escaping into the jungle, Simba meets Timon and Pumbaa, who soon become his best friends. In addition to caring for the little cub until its adulthood, the duo is also responsible for presenting the lion with one of the most memorable phrases in the film, which is accompanied by an unforgettable musical number and a super important message: Hakuna Matata.

But after all, what does Hakuna Matata mean?

As reported by the ScreenRant portal, Hakuna Matata is a phrase in the Swahili language that means “take it easy”, “no problems” or “there are no worries”, since “Hakuna” is translated as “there is not”, while “matata” is “worries”.

The meaning of the phrase is also present in the lyrics of the song itself, composed of Tim Rice alongside the renowned singer Elton John, where the characters say “Your problems you must forget! / This is living, this is learning! / Hakuna matata!” Remember!

In addition to being a hit with fans, the song was also a critical success. In 1995, it was nominated for an Oscar for “Best Original Song” and, some time later, it also ranked 99th in the American Film Institute’s ranking of the 100 best film songs.
