I don’t usually comment on posts but FUN RANDOM DISNEY FACT : before Scar got his Scar (which was given to him by a wildebeest after an incident involving Mufasa) his name was Taka. He requested to be called Scar after this incident becaus0e he is a very over-dramatic lion as we already know! The source for this fact is from the Lion King novel series.
Dang you learn something everyday.
EXCUSE ME THERE IS A LION KING NOVEL SERIES EXCUSE ME EXCUSE MEEEE
ALSO a fun fact that actually isn’t fun at all and makes my soul hurt a LOT: Taka, as a Swahili noun (from which all names in The Lion King are taken), means trash.
So basically Scar was crapped on from birth is what I’m saying.
so scar got his scar from a wildebeest accident
and simba got the emitonal scar from watching his father be trampled by them.
Okay and Mufasa means “king” in Swahili
So let’s think a second, Ahadi (which is the name of Mufasa and Scar’s father):
If you name one of your sons “KING” and the other “TRASH”
Which one do you think is gonna turn fucking evil?
Well it makes sense as to why Scar wanted Mufasa to die in a wilderbeest accident…maybe Mufasa didn’t save Scar, so Scar wasn’t going to save Mufasa..he wanted him to suffer aswell. Now I’ve made myself sad.
Out leaped the King under the Mountain, and his companions followed him. Hood and cloak were gone; they were in shining armour, and red light leaped from their eyes. In the gloom the great dwarf gleamed like gold in a dying fire.
I can’t believe this is still going around
