The Lion King: Scar's Reign

Chapter Text




*All rights regarding The Lion King belong to Disney!!

Introduction/Background story:

Ever since I watched The Lion King film as a kid, the film carried on in my imagination after it ended. I couldn't believe my favorite Disney character was gone forever. And after knowing of Disney's deleted scene of Scar, & a bit of his past, my imagination developed this. Be welcome in my imagination: 

In my head I imagined watching a (animation) film called 'Scar's Reign' with of course the voice of Jeremy Irons! It starts with an animation saying:  'Scar's Reign'. At the top you see a close-up of his eyes, the scar is clearly visible. His gaze becomes less mean when the name Scar is changed to Taka. It changes back soon.

Then there is a flashback from The Lion King. The song "Be Prepared" from Scar can be seen in flashback tones. Then we see Mufasa's death, Scar sending Simba away and sending the hyenas behind him, Scar telling the lions the tragic news and the moment that Timon and Pumbaa found Simba.


Cover image:

I did some editing and created a better cover for the story. Referring to the description above, well I couldn't find a proper close up of his eyes, so I couldn't do the eye thing. And I am terrible at drawing myself. In stead I've chosen for three images of him next each other, each another emotional state, which fits this story. The starry background is from The Lion King 2. I thought it was suitable for this story but I didn't wanted to leave out The Lion King's famous sunrise. :)
