Scar. The name sends a bit of a shiver down our spines, and so does thinking about who Scar is and what he tries to accomplish. In fact, he conjures up one of the most dastardly evil plots in any Disney movie. Still, he’s just so fabulous we can’t help but adore him.
First off, there’s that amazing accent.
We love listening to Scar talk. Jeremy Irons, you are pure magic.
His name is super appropriate.
Which came first, the lion or the scar?
He pulls off an amazing musical number.
How did he choreograph all of those hyenas so perfectly?!
He’s one of the most sarcastic lions we know, and we love every biting retort.
His dialogue is just dripping with disdain.
He’s really creative with his evil plans.
It was so smart of him to choose a remote location like this to try and get rid of Simba. We know we shouldn’t be, but we are fascinated with the elephant graveyard.
Scar is simply sinister.
Look at that face!
Scar brings serious drama, and we love that in an antagonist.
He’s just so engaging.
He’s also really motivating.
He inspired the hyenas to take over the Pride Lands in basically no time at all.
He’s pure evil.
Pure, awesome evil.
There’s no redemption story for Scar, and the movie might be better off for it.
He’s the villain that all other villains aspire to become.
