Concept cover

This is a idea!

The Lion King: Scar's Reign

The Lion King: Scar's Reign is an upcoming Disney Animation film produced by Walt Disney Pictures, Walt Disney Animation Studios, and it deepens into Scar 's period as King of the Pride Lands during Simba 's time with Timon & Pumbaa (as seen in Disney's The Lion King 1994). Also the film will give its viewer a look inside of Mufasa 's and Taka's (Scar's real name) childhood, based on A Tale of Two Brothers.The film will also show a new version of the deleted song 'The Madness of King Scar ', based on the original scene and the version of The Lion King Musical with Scar, Nala, Zazu and the hyenas Shenzi, Banzai & Ed, started with Scar having a nightmare concerning his father Ahadi. As seen in the fan-made concept cover, the viewer will see a Scar with many different emotional states. Becoming the king of the Pride Lands had been his childhood's dream, but is it truly like how he had imagined it when he threw his brother in the gorge? Overall the film will have a darker look than the original film had. Many fans will love to see Jeremy Irons reprise the role of Scar!

This film will give fans of Disney‘s The Lion King the opportunity to relive their childhood but also it will turn over a new leaf, new & untold stories shall be told and some old ones shall be renewed!

Small summary

A dark era has reached the Pride Lands, with Scar as its king. The lionesses, the hyenas: they all have to deal with each other. This film will reveal what‘s truly happened during Simba's absence. What's life like on the Pride Lands with Scar? With his chaotic mind, Scar has got his eyes drawn to Nala. 

Also his past still haunts this black maned lion. And how's Scar holding up as king himself? Every day there's the chance of him or one of the hyenas spilling their secret out in the open. But there's one other lion who knows the truth: Zira. Scar and Zira have a rather unpleasant history together and also the hyenas are wondering if the black maned lion still stands on the same page as they are. While Scar is worrying about his future and the 'ghosts' of his past, Zira and the three hyenas are secretly plotting against him. Does Scar have anyone left on his side or has he, with his actions of the past, created his own Lion Graveyard? 

Is Taka still hidden somewhere inside or is our pal truly destined to be doomed?

Characters (under construction)

If you'll click on the character name, you'll be lead to a more extensive description of the character.

  • Scar (Jeremy Irons)

Scar is the current king of the Pride Lands. He's the son of Ahadi and Uru and the younger brother of Mufasa. Scar is known as a sly and mysterious lion who's actions are always meant to benefit only himself. He's lazy. Scar is absolutely idolizing.. himself and he thinks that with his black manes, he's irresistible and ten times the king Mufasa was. Short said, Scar is a haughty lion and also very greedy!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Nala is the daughter of Sarafina and a blonde maned lion called Lio and the older sister of Mheetu. She's been titled the Lead Huntress by Scar and because of her destiny of becoming the queen, the lion also thinks it's his right of claiming her as his queen. Nala is now grown into a beautiful, more responsible young lioness. Slightly, there's still a feeling of insecurity inside of her, a side that is definitely being challenged in this story. Bit by bit she grows to become more confident.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Shenzi is the female leader of the hyena pack. And to Scar's disgust, she's the mate of Banzai. Scar hates that who apparently instead of following his orders, the hyenas rather like to reproduce themselves. Shenzi is leading the hyenas and is teaming up with Zira for countering Nala and if necessary, she's willing to turn them all against Scar too.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Banzai is a male hyena. He's the mate of Shenzi and a close friend of Ed. He's known as the silver-tongued hyena who often speaks without thinking, what mostly results in pissing off others (mainly Scar..) and receiving an elbow from Shenzi.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ed is a male hyena. He's the closest friend of Shenzi & Banzai. He mostly has his tongue out. Ed doesn't speak. It's unclear whether he can't or he just won't (in the presence of the lions). Also it's stated that he's unable to lie.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Zazu is a male hornbill. Formerly he was the flying morning report. Now he's kept in a boned cage by Scar in the king's cave. He's a bit of a sarcastic bird, who isn't really afraid of giving his opinion. Because of his fragile temper and high opinion of himself, Zazu is not taken very seriously by the other characters. Scar sees Zazu as nothing more than a annoying chatterbox and the two of them are rapidly, sort of speak, at each other's throats. Zazu is also shown to have a sense of humor, as he's often caught in making fun of Scar (for example the king's vocal talents) and the hyenas who he often refers as slobbery, mangy stupid poachers.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Sarafina is the mother of Nala & Mheetu, they mean everything to her and she's willing to sacrifice herself for them. Sarafina's parents are unknown. Sarafina is not related to Scar and Mufasa. Sarafina had a complicated love life with Scar/Taka, but the lion who truly captured her heart (and broke it) was the blonde maned lion Lio. Sarafina's rival is Zira.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

  • Mheetu

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Zira is the mother of Nuka. Zira had known Taka and Mufasa since their childhood, but is a resident of the Pride Lands since Scar's Reign. Zira was Scar's first queen, a title she mainly got by blackmailing Scar. Besides Scar & the hyenas she's the only one who knows the truth about what happened to Mufasa & Simba. In fact, it was Zira who sneakingly planted the idea of killing Mufasa in Scar's head and by manipulating him, she used Scar and the hyenas for doing the dirty work for her. She now uses the hyenas to gain success in countering Nala and secretly manipulating the black maned lion, a thing in which Zira also has her own hidden agenda. Zira had always been jealous of Sarafina and hates both her and her daughter Nala.

Creator's notes

  • My idea comes from the fan fiction I'm writing called "Scar's Reign", focused on my favorite Disney character.
  • Ever since I watched The Lion King film as a kid, the film carried on in my imagination after it ended. And after knowing of Disney's deleted scene of Scar, & a bit of his past, my imagination developed this story. I would like to welcome you in my imagination!
  • You can read my story (not finished!) here:

The Lion King: Scar's Reign on fanfiction.net

(And I'm already having ideas for a sequel to this..)

Cover4

This one I actually made for the 18th chapter called Drama Before Sunset, perhaps it could be a second cover too.
