Z is for... Zazu

Z is for... Zazu
Film: Lion King (1994)
Actor: Rowan Atkinson

The Character
Zazu is a responsible adviser to the King, but the King's son, Simba, realises that Zazu's methods are antiquated. King's don't need advice from little hornbills for a start.

Of course, like any boring teacher, Zazu is always correct... but that's not always the fun way, right?

The Actor
Rowan Atkinson is one of Britain's finest comedy actors. He has probably become most well known for his role as Mr. Bean, the bumbling Mini-owning man who seemed to find himself in very bizarre situatoins. The TV series spun off into a film, Bean, which spawned a sequel, Mr. Bean's Holiday.

For British audiences he is also well known in Blackadder, where he plays an ancestry line through time with his assistant Baldrick (Tony Robinson). Elsewhere, on film, he is widely recognised as Johnny English - a spoof secret agent with British interests at heart.

Classic Scene

Thanks for sticking with my blog throughout the A to Z challenge. Enjoy this extra Rowan Atkinson film from the London Olympic Games 2012.


  1. I never liked this character, highly annoying. I'm not a fan of The Lion King to be honest. Rowan Atkinson on the other hand is a comedy genius, and if you haven't seen it, go and find his invisible drumkit sketch, just brilliant!

  2. That was Rowan Atkinson? I may have to watch it again!
