Film Theory: Did Scar EAT Mufasa? (The Lion King)
Never miss a Film Theory! ►
Last time I talked about the Lion King, we were seeing just how big the body count was for this beloved Disney movie and sayong Scar was the rightful king. WEll, we are leaning into that even HARDER this time! Today, I want to talk about the sibling rivalry to end all sibling rivalries - Scar and Mufasa. Theorists, lions are a very, VERY interesting animal. I think that Scar ATE Mufasa after the stampede. You'll have to watch to find out WHY!

    The teeth on the skull are not lion teeth

    In the Broadway adaptation of TLK, there is a large feline skull at the front of the pile of bones on which Scar reclines in the opener to the second act, “The Madness of King Scar”. I think having that skull there is a callback to the scene in the movie where Scar plays with a skull as Zazu entertains him with the coconut song.

  • Destiny

    A deleted scene from The Lion King shows Scar proposing to Nala. That disturbed me more than this theory....

    I'm 5:23 in so don't know if I'm jumping the gun a bit but ☝ don't lion's corpses just decay naturally like everything else just leaving a skellington behind maybe a few vultures and bugs for example picking at it on the way past I dunno but this is a Thelma and Louise situation maybe another film theory did either Thelma or Louise survive but that's just a theory a not done theory So I literally jumped the gun it doesn't take a genius

  • SkratchIsRandom

    Im having such huge, fantastic, horrible, crazy deja vu- I swear I watched this years ago- this exact video, with less of the TikTok mentions and what not- but I swear I watched this. Wtf

    fun fact: tigers have a stronger bite than lions and HYENAS have a even stronger bite than tigers and lions although they would still lose a fight between a tiger or a lion because well..... I don't know, that's just how nature works I guess?

    Oh boy you're wrong Lions actually eat about a hundred and fifty pounds of meat daily so what you're done showing your lack of intelligence and research that has anything that even resembles remote accuracy backing it I'll see you later also if you're wondering where the punctuation is it would be wasted on someone as stupid as you Chow

  • KazeKage

    I was right on first glance I thought it looked like a baboon skull the whole time. I have taken a biological anthropology course and lab before so I was taught quite a bit about primate and ancestral hominid skulls/fossils. Plus I know felines and knew the length of jaw was too long and not the right teeth.

    The skull also looks like mandrill's, and that would be Rafiki. Maybe Scar ate Rafiki's family and everyone hates him for that.

    Has no one considered the connection to Hamlet? I’m sure it was just meant to be a scene giving a nod to the story origin - and, being set in the animal kingdom, instead of using a human skull, another primate skull was used as MatPat pointed out

  • Valenova.mp4

    Just looking at the teeth for a few seconds made me think “that dont look right”

  • MCD's

    Also, the eye sockets face forwards, like a primate's. A lion skull's eye sockets face sideways.

    Maybe the baboon skull was a hidden easter egg since in early drafts of the story, Scar was going to be king of the baboons.

    Matpat's recap just made me realize that the Lion King has the same basic plot as Hamlet (except Simba is exiled and then finds out Scar killed his father when he gets back). I don't know what to do with this information.

  • supitzcade101

    looks like a leopard skull

    Yeah my brother haaaates that theory because the basis of all the points are wrong. Hyenas will eat anything, lions very rarely eat each other, and that looks a lot more like a baboon skull than a lion skull.
