Do you think Mufasa had a feeling he would die soon?

There is a scene with Mufasa and Scar where Scar says “Oh was that today? I really didn’t want to disrespect Sarabi and Simba.” and Mufasa goes on to tell him that Simba will be his king one day. Mufasa ends the conversation by telling the bird, “What am I going to do with him?” - The scene directly after is a scene between Mufasa and Simba and he is telling him that one day he will die, and the sun will rise and it will be Simba’s time to rule the kingdom and then goes on to say that he will be in the stars watching over him with all the other dead kings. Do you think Mufasa had a feeling he would die soon?

    Maybe foreshadowing, but then again, he may have just understood that his death was inevitable, remembering that he too had a dad that was alive, and he too will pass on like his own father did. Perhaps being a father, reminded him of his own father.

    Update: Also death is a natural part of the circle of life. The movie recognizes that the flesh is destined to become part of the earth, while the soul goes on to a different place.

    No, but that's observant of you, probably the pep-talk he gave to Simba made it sound that way.

    Mufasa was preparing Simba to be the king ,because one day Simba would be king and with Scar lurking around Mufasa knew there was danger close, he din't know he was going to die soon, but he was prepared for anything.
