Also, a lion's typical "roar" sounds far less intense than we imagine it. Enter Frank Welker, whose list of voiceover credits puts the Law & Order IMDb page to shame. Welker grabbed himself an empty metal trashcan just sitting around the studio and began burping and growling into it next to the microphone. And that's how we wound up with the "regal" lion roars of the titular king: garbage and yelling.
