In The Lion King 2, Vitanis name was originally Shetani. ”Shetani” means “Devil” in Kiswahili. Disney may have thought it was inappropriate, thereby changing it to something a little less offensive. “Vitani” has no meaning in the Kiswahili language, from which most of the characters’ names are drawn. Despite the change, some characters can be heard refering to her as Shetani in the background of the film.
