We're not sure why anyone would choose to drop bad news about a beloved Disney movie that came out in 1994, but the devil works in mysterious ways. Today, we learned that Mufasa and Scar aren't actual brothers. Come on, people.
Rob Minkoff and Don Hahn, the director and producer of the classic animated film, came out of the woodwork to ruin your day. "There was always this thing about well, how do you have these two [male] lions?" said Hahn via Refinery29. “Occasionally there are prides that do have two male lions, in an interesting dynamic because they’re not equals. One lion will always kind of be off in the shadows." We always thought Scar was the "evil" brother. Turns out he was just an evil rando.
