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.

What are your thoughts? I got goosebumps as soon as James Earl Jones started speaking lol.
Same here. The whole trailer gave me goosebumps. I’m guessing this will be awesome. I loved The Jungle Book and Jon Favreau can almost do no wrong. I love him.

Looks incredible
The Jungle Book "live action" was is amazing to behold, I expect this to be similar if not better.
