Disney Is Resurrecting Scar From "The Lion King"

He did warn us to be prepared, guys.

Posted on

Let's just get this out of the way: Scar, the most villainous lion in all of Pride Rock, absolutely died in Disney's 1994 animated feature film The Lion King. He was murdered by his own hyena friends, and it was a defining/traumatic moment in every '90s kid's childhood.

But now, thanks to The Lion Guard, an animated Disney Channel/Disney Junior show, Scar is back from the dead. You can get an exclusive sneak peek at his resurrection below.

Scar will appear in a special extended episode, “The Rise of Scar,” on July 29 at 9 a.m. ET/8 CT on the Disney Channel.
