'Greenleaf' Meets 'The Lion King' In This Mashup Between The Disney Classic And OWN's Megachurch Drama

July 29 2019

Who would have guessed Greenleaf had so many parallels to The Lion King!

Our latest mash0up is The Lion Queen, featuring Grace Greenleaf (Merle Dandridge), who returns to her family's church after 20 years.

Throughout the series (and throughout tremendous tribulations), Grace rises above to take her rightful place as the rightful heir of the church, which as we see, mirrors Simba's journey in The Lion King.

Get into the mash-up below:

Season 4 of Greenleaf comes to OWN September 3 at 10 p.m. ET and The Lion King is in theatres now!


This 'Do The Right Thing' And 'When They See Us' Mash-Up Is Powerful
