Plot: Simba idolises his father, King Mufasa, and takes to heart his own royal destiny. But not everyone in the kingdom celebrates the new cub’s arrival. Scar, Mufasa’s brother—and former heir to the throne—has plans of his own. The battle for Pride Rock is ravaged with betrayal, tragedy and drama, ultimately resulting in Simba’s exile. With help from a curious pair of newfound friends, Simba will have to figure out how to grow up and take back what is rightfully his.

Not going to lie, I am massively dissappointed that Jeremy Irons is not reprising his role as Scar. His voice in the original movie was PERFECT in that role and I would have loved to have seen him back.

There was even a story earlier this year at some point where Disney said that Mufasa and Scar were not actual brothers, but merely in the same pride. Yes, that is despite the use of the family words 'brother', 'uncle' and 'nephew' being used between Mufasa, Simba and Scar but hey ho.

Hoping this live action one will turn out good. Really hoping it does.
