This project was part of a larger group collaboration with two other classmates. Using a set of specific perimeters we each designed aspects building a world around a Post-Apocalyptic theme with Fantasy elements Lion King.
In this world, a magical apocalypse is caused when Scar attempts to steal a magical power from the deity that watches over the lands. The magic backfires, and Scar is cursed with an impure power. The Pride Lands are protected by the grace of the deity, whereas everything outside of it barrier is cursed.
From there the Lion King canon continues as usual with the exception of magical elements and twists such as the hyenas being cursed, wretched henchmen. Or Timon and Pumba being half cursed yet benevolent creatures.
Everything in the series was developed around an idea of a duality between a "pure" magical oasis in the Pride Lands, and "corrupted" parts of the outer-lands.
