I placed all text from the images (from the txt file) on the Wiki. I'm going to put up the songs now.

A few things about the animals
  • Lion are at the top of the heap in TLK, but shouldn't the other "great cats" get palulukan too, maybe with some adjectives?  Hyenas as aynantang implies some kind of wolf/dog connection.  Maybe the non-lions could be palalukantsyìp?
  • Ants are insects.  Can't they be teylu/beetle?
  • Bees sting.  Why not zize'/hellfire wasp?
  • Monkey and Baboon are used interchangeably in the movie.  Shouldn't they both be syaksyuk?
  • Hippos and rhinos are big and dumb, but not famous for their size or toughness the way elephants are. (Mounted Elephants have been in armies!)  Why not talioang for H & R, but let elephants have 'angtsìk/hammerheads?
Should we also deliniate what the animals are whose species isn't name directly?  It might be helpful in paraphrasing places where we don't have words to decide that Zazo is fkio, for example.
'Ivong, Na'vi!

And what about Timon and Pumbaa?

I'm actually against the hwole transliteration.  It risks making some of the names unrecognizable!
That's not a good reason not to do it!  :P   I think the point is to make as though a native Na'vi speaker were saying it all.

Tam, however I strongly encourage you to read this first before proceeding!



I somewhat agree.  If you look at translations into any other language, they don't change the names.  I see the point of trying to make it as native as possible but names need to be kept the same to maintain the original integrity of the movie.

I think the only one that really bugged me was Scar, when it could just be spelled SkarPumpa would be the only other one I would try to argue.

Something funny I found on the Tree of Souls forum:


Sorry, back to the names: I think they should be written as in English but have to be spoken like a Na'vi ->  They don't say Pumbaa but also not Pumpa, just a way inbetween.

Lions are palulukan. All other cats are palulukantsyìp or palulukantsyìptsyìp, or even palulukantsyìptsyìptsyìp. The only possible exception is ligers.  ;D

Hyena would simply be vrrtep.
Scar would have a special name (especially among the lions): vrrtep eyktan

We already have hì`ang for insect. Perhaps hì`ang akllte

But there is a big size difference between most monkeys and baboons. A baboon might be syasyuk apxa.

I love the cartoon! Kind of looks like Le Eylan's work.[/list]

Is that many -tsyìp suffixes even possible? Lol.

I think it should be "eyktan ayvrrtepä" because he is the leader of the demons (there is more than 1 hyena ;) )

Here, the a must be free floating because kllte is not an adjective.

Does that mean yes?

I've been doing a casting call to youtube and a Voice Acting website and I need to know if the script will be finished anytime within the next...lifetime.

I'll do some speaking/singing, but It'll be good if we make Na'vi subtitles for The Lion King. :) I just simply don't know what to say... And I don't know which character should I say. :)

If there is interest, I can help with translation - at least I can try. How it works, what is to be done?

Well, it would be great if you could submit them to the Lion King part of the Wiki that I created like some time ago.
That way it's easy to see what parts are already translated and/or should be edited or improved.

Wow this is great!  Yea there's a lot of interest over on my VA site.  None through youtube :/

But I have someone who's already sent in an audition and three others who are interested in Sarabi, Shenzi and a Singer (Circle of Life)

The issue they all have is that they don't know the language or it's pronunciations.  I've directed them to some youtube pronunciation vids, but they are having issues getting the sounds together.

If any of you more experienced members could, perhaps record some of the lines (not with a special voice or in any rythem JUST correct pronunciation)  that would be super helpful and cat aid in getting this show's paws off the ground.
