If you have seen , then you know Scar is one of the most vile, disgraceful, and evil charactersto ever make his way onto our movie and TV screens. (If you haven’t seen , then what are you doing here? GO WATCH NOW.) That being said, perhaps one of the most validating moments ofany ’90s kid’s childhood was watching the malevolentmonster be attacked and killed by his tribe of loyal hyenas (seriously, it’s up there with watching Meredith wake up on an air mattress in the middle of a lake in ).Well, be prepared, folks, becauseScar from is being resurrected and, though it’s been over 20 years, I’m not quite sure I’m ready for more of his f*ckery.
It seems as if the Disney Junior showis bringing Scar back from the dead in the form of flames that emit from a volcano. Naturally, according to a video posted by BuzzFeed Entertainment, Scar is not at all interested in apologizingfor his heinous actions in the 1994 film; instead, he’s coming back to continue his attempts to break the ever-important Circle of Life and I, for one, am anxious as hell about it.
This time around the plot revolves around Simba’s son, Kion, who accidentally brings Scar (Scar’s spirit?) back to life via volcanic flames. The villain himself admits, though, he is much more than a volcano, and David Oyelowo, whovoices the new Scar assures us heis still a menacing character. I just hope Kion and the new gang don’t fall for Scar’s sneaky-ass tricks and false sincerity.
And, for those of you who were wondering whether or not Scar will get to sing in , you’re in luck: It looks as if the vindictive lionwill have a follow-up to his iconic song Be Prepared called I Have A Plan when he appears in an episode titled The Rise of Scar set to air on Disney Channel on Jul. 29 at 9:00 a.m.
I guess all we can do between now and then is try to block the trauma of Scar from our minds by listening to Hakuna Matata on repeat.
