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

    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.

                                          Your only flaw is that because Scar and Mufasa are brothers and share the same blood/genes, he would NOT kill the cubs. Brother lions that share a pride in the wild do NOT kill each other's cubs.
