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

SUBSCRIBE for More Film Theory! ►
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.

  • Wow, anyone else just have in mind that this is a movie, and not like real. It's made up for kids, can we not just enjoy it for what it is? Jeez man, science kinda sucks am I right?

  • Scar is actually simba's father because they both have tufts on the back of the legs and mufasa dosen't, also I saw simba the other day I told him to mufasa. Simba in swahili (African language) means lion

  • I think the real story of the lionesses killing scar and becoming an all female pride (since all the males are dead now) is a better story....even tho they would die out cus they dont have any cubs

  • Didn't Scar mentioned something about being "At the shallow end on the gene pool" implying that He has better brains than brawn. So therefore this theory really can't stand since Scar basically disproved it at like the beginning of the Movie.

  • The characters are NOT lions, They are human personalities in lion bodies. Their behavior is derived from human behavior more than lion behavior. Like all stories.

  • Actually, i disagree. I mean, sure if it WAS made to be completely realistic, then it would mean that the remake would go like that, but there's one little problem: it ISN'T supposed to be realistic. Yeah yeah bla bla "its supposed to be realistic" it still doesn't mean they're throwing in another story. They probably just made it LOOK realistic, but never planned to make it an almost completely different movie it's a REMAKE, not "a remake that should be realistic in every single way" THINK AGAIN, DUMMIES!
