  • Her original name was going to be Naanda while Nala was Nadra.
  • She originally had a son named Mheetu, but that character was removed.
  • In the early concept, Sarafina was to be Sarabi's sister or sister-in-law, (as version of Naanda) but that makes Nala and Simba cousins so they confirmed it to be false.
