Though its status of a horse is debatable, a zebra is presumed to have been killed by Scar.

Several live insects (presumably non-sentient) are eaten onscreen. The hyenas are shown eating a zebra leg, but nothing else of the zebra is shown. Numerous animal bones and skulls are shown, especially in the elephant graveyard, but nothing graphic.

Animals fight, but there are no humans in the movie to abuse any animals.

They're very colorful and cartoony and as a kid I wanted to eat them.

There is technically a ghost but it is not aggressive and gives advice to the protagonist.

Simba and Nala are raised together like brother and sister despite being betrothed, but hey, that's royalty for you...

There are ants crawling along a branch in the opening scene that may resemble spiders

Scar doesn't fall to his death, people. He gets up fine but gets eaten by the hyenas after they got angry at him for blaming them for all the stuff he had done.

Pumbaa the warthog is heavily implied to be notoriously flatulent, but he isn't shown or heard farting onscreen.

The villain manipulates the child in one important scene, but there is no direct abuse from him during childhood.

Actually, Scar was mauled to death by a horde of angry animals. The fire was just in the background.

Scar convinces Simba that his father's death was his own fault, and guilts Simba further by asking what his mother will think when she finds out. Simba continues to blame himself well into adulthood, until he learns the truth.

Played for laughs: Zazu is caught by hyenas and, while protesting, is slowly marched into a scalding geyser that launches him comically into the air like a firework. He shows up again unharmed.

The closest things to gore are shots of insects being bitten in half and of hyenas devouring a zebra leg. A hyena is scratched across the face, leaving red claw marks, but that's the closest thing we see to blood. A character is eaten alive offscreen. Another character is trampled to death, but their dead body is not visibly bloody or injured at all.

It is implied with a lingering gaze that Simba and Nala got up to something during the song, Can You Feel The Love Tonight, but nothing explicit is said or shown. The implication will probably go over most kids' heads, but older audiences will notice it.
