Disney and the Hakuna Matata Trademark


“Hakuna Matata” is a common expression in Swahili, a language spoken in a large part of Africa, and it became popular in the West after the original version of “The Lion King” was released in 1994.
Disney Entertainment had trademarked “Hakuna Matata” upon the release of the original movie for clothing or footwear it sells in the United States.
