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.

  • I do not believe lions in the wild would have enlisted the help of hyenas in their "duels." That was just cowardly, anything but what a 'rightful king' would do. In fact, it was more like treason.

  • Hey mat pat sir I was rewatching timeforce power rangers and it made me think about the power ranger time line and I was wondering if that whatever happens with the power ranger universe between the year 2001 and 3000 I was wondering if every event that was in the first episode of time force still plays out no matter what happens between the two time periods and your the only person that I could think of that could possibly come up a theory or something

  • Ahadi, Mufasa's father, probably took over the pride, when he already mated with Mufasa's mother, and didn't kill off the children, or mated with the other lionesses. Same with Mufasa. That's probably what happened.

  • We can say the same thing for us humans. Black people are genetically superior and dominant when it comes to genetics. All other ethnic groups are recessive basically genetic off shoots. Any animal with higher concentration of melanin is considered dominant.. The ones with lighter skin tone have a lesser chance of survival. These are the laws of nature..

  • That’s actually incorrect Scar and Mustafa would have been a coalition so they both would have been sleeping with the Lionesses and technically wouldn’t know if Simba was his or Mustafas.

  • To be honest there is a better explanation: So in the lion guard series,since scar (Idk his real name btw) is the leader of the lion guard his duty is to protect the pride lands.yhen he met a mysterious lion that tricked home,a snake scratched his eye and scar wins the fight with the lion.he explained to his Bro what happened and mufasa nicknamed him scar,even if he just saved pride rock from terrorism of a totally different lion,I feel bad :(
