Film Theory: Why Scar is the RIGHTFUL King! (Disney Lion King)

    Disney's live action Lion King is causing a stir among Disney fans. I agree, this movie brought up a lot of questions about remakes and live action reimaginings of classic Disney movies... but maybe not how you think. See, the original Lion King ends with Simba taking over Pride Rock and everything is sunshine and happiness. When Disney decided to do a "real" Lion King, I looked into the behavior of IRL lion prides and WHOA! If Disney did a REAL Lion King, well... prepare to have your childhoods ruined. Again.

                    Mufasa shouldn’t have died because he died of fall damage and cats land always in their feet, and lions are cats

                                        This should have been in the live action because that is supposed to be real life and more for adults and everything

                                                    Just because he has the scar doesn't make him evil 😤🦁

                                                      I know that some theories may have been true but the one that made it(the creator) can do whatever with their fates,life,etc. you can't do anything about it and I don't care

                                                      • Jorge Trinidad Arizmendi

                                                        By the way,Disney is strict with violence and realism

                                                        • Jorge Trinidad Arizmendi

                                                          Why are you saying that scar is the rightful leader,he's corrupt and evil and horrible,and all of your theories don't make sense including the games and that make you sound like a idiot

                                                              "he has a scar, that makes him evil"
                                                              I would argue most people walking around with such are tool are very likely not to be evil
