The Lion King: Chiwetel Ejiofor’s Scar Is Just As Menacing As Jeremy Iron’s

Disney in all its glory and wisdom saw fit to give The Lion King, one of its most beloved animated classics the live-action treatment. And in its magnanimity, the mouse house retained most elements of the original, which I thought and still believe was the right move. Let's be honest, The Lion King isn't like Aladdin, you can't just usurp the emotional impact of Mufasa's death for cheap thrills or retcon Timon and Pumbaa meeting and raising Simba for the sake of having a twist, and not expect the whole world to riot. Not all intellectual properties are created equal, we made our peace with that a long time ago.

Sorry Jeremy Irons, but Chiwetel Ejiofor’s my Scar now 😌.
