While the trailer for Mufasa The Lion King was not unanimous among spectators, annoyed by Disney’s “photorealistic” rendering, a second change compared to the original cartoon risks making people cringe. Indeed, L’origin story of Scar has been modified on the occasion of this live-action prequel to the 1994 classic. We’re counting on you to give us your opinion in the comments!

the origins of scar modified

Before talking about the changes made to the character of Scar, a quick reminder for those of you who don’t remember: in the original animated version of the Lion King, the treacherous Scar murders his older brother, King Mufasa, and usurps the throne in one of Disney’s saddest scenes. Little Prince Simba is accused of his father’s death. Forced into exile, he grew up and eventually returned, overthrowing his uncle and taking his rightful place. If you liked this story, unfortunately, be aware that it will be changed in the prequel to Disney’s live-action remake. The story, which will see Rafiki, Timon and Pumbaa telling a young lion cub the history and rise of Mufasa, and it’s not the one you know. New plot details describe Scar/Taka as “the heir to a royal line And “a lion prince with a bright future” who sympathizes with the orphaned lion cub Mufasa, accepting him into his family like a brother.

Unlike past stories, Taka and Mufasa will not be related by blood : Taka is the son of Obasi and Eshe, and Mufasa is the son of Masego and Afia. A change mentioned by producer Don Hahn in 2022 during an interview with Reader’s Digest, who explained that Scar was originally a rogue lion before the directors took inspiration from Claudius, the king’s murderous brother, in THE Hamlet by Shakespeare.

We discussed the fact that it was very likely that [Scar et Mufasa] do not have the same parents. The way lions operate in the wild is as follows: when the male gets old, another rebellious lion comes to kill the leader of the pride. The females then go into heat and the new, younger lion kills the king and all the babies. Now it is the new lion who leads the troop. We always wondered how it was possible to have these two lions [mâles]. Sometimes there are herds that count two males, in an interesting dynamic because they are not equal [puisqu’ils n’ont pas de parents communs]. One of the two lions always remains in the shadows. We tried to use these animal truths to support the story, and so we thought that Scar and Mufasa couldn’t really have come from the same genetic heritage.

A bias that risks angering fans…
