    Actually that was false. A week later, Roger Allens confirmed that Mufasa and Scar are brothers. But there is actually an origin behind Rob Minkoff's claim of them not being brothers.

    In the first draft of The Lion King when it was called "King of the Kalahari," the film was intended to focus around a war between lions and baboons with Scar being the leader, whilst Rafiki was a cheetah. This plot was abandoned and Scar was rewritten into a rouge lion, unrelated to Mufasa and Simba. In "King of the Jungle" as well as "King of the Beasts" Mufasa and Scar were originally not supposed to be related, but instead, Scar was a rouge lion, who was jealous of Mufasa's position as King. He would've trespassed into the Pride Lands before being kicked out by Mufasa, when he meets the hyenas (originally lead by Banagai and Baasho) and plots with them to take down Mufasa.
    There are two versions of how he overthrows Mufasa. In "King of the Jungle" Scar challenges Mufasa in a fight, but the fight takes place on Pride Rock. Scar and the hyenas throw Mufasa off to his death where he is mauled alive by the hyenas. Scar would later exile Simba from Pride Rock, before being defeated and killed in a bloody fight, in which Simba takes the throne and exiles his followers.
    In "King of the Beasts" Mufasa and Scar challenge near a fire tree bridge, and manages to snap his neck in half. Simba, who would be a teenager in this scene would've rebelled against Scar, only to be banished and lose his tail, before later returning and killing Scar, throwing him off the edge of Pride Rock, before killing Banagi the same way.
    However, this plot was scrapped, and thus Scar was rewritten Mufasa's younger brother as the directors felt that a threat within the royal family would be a better plotline.

    I saw another video on who nalas father was, and in the video the guy was talking about a book that is not head cannon and I’m pretty sure those where the same books
    The guy who made the books just used the Disney thing to make his books, Not entirely sure if that’s the case but I would look it up

  • Felicia louisiana girl

    I thought that they were half brothers just like simba and nala I believe that nala has different mom that we see in the movie but since I've heard before only a leader male mates with the females mufasa would be her father making this whole story like a hiarchy were the men get with the closest relitive as possible to keep the blood line strong

    It is not uncommon for lion brothers to take over a pride together when they are young but mufasa also has more parasites then scar because red manes means unhealthy lions black manes are healthy plus male lions in real life kinda mount with each other to keep bounds together so good luck with getting past that you now know more of lion that you probably didn’t want to know

    No, Scar and Mufasa are canonically brothers. I'm pretty certain. They look different because, looking at the parents, they inherited the different colourations.

      KANYANTA MWANSA Month ago +1

      You are correct sir! In fact, Mufasa and Scar were originally not supposed to be brothers. Scar was going to be a rouge lion who was jealous of Mufasa's position as King and would've allied with the hyenas(lead by Banagai) to take him and Simba down and rule Pride Rock. He would've defeated Mufasa in a fight before banishing an adolescent Simba to the desert, only to later be killed by Simba himself. This plotline was too dark and as well as that, a threat within the royal family would be more interesting, so they changed the storyline to make him Mufasa's younger brother who seizes the throne by killing his brother, and exiling his nephew.

    Scar got his scar because when he was out hunting with his mom she died from a buffalo stamped just like mufasa. And his dad got mad and clawed scratched him in the eye he ran away and zira started calling him scar and I guess it just stuck with him.

    I think they made a good decision making Mufasa and Scar not brothers, they don't even look alike, one looks buff and healthy with a red mane and yellow fur and red eyes, the other one is skinny and cranky and looks like a different genetic species with a black mane and dark brown fur with green eyes, maby they have different fathers, Mufasas is obviously Ahati, and Scars might be an rouge outlander, this is my opinion.

    Well in my opinion this is isn’t the directors choice to say their not brothers because the movie did not come first it was the books and have u seen the mum and fad they both have similarities I’m sorry but I think u need to look into the books for information on this movie also the directors don’t know a lot like the fact in the comics Simba had a son named Kopa nobody told the directors abot this and made up Kiara

    1:57 that's not exactly how it works, 1st the male of the pride doesn't necessarly needs to be old to be "dethroned" in fact an old lion can take a younger lion's pride, second, they don't need to die, true the duel for the pride can have a fatal outcome but it's not always the case, it's hardly the case even, lastly killing/defeating the previous leader of the pride does not make the females go into heat, killing their offspring is what makes them go into heat.
    P.S. younger males usually leave their own pride when they are adolecent or young adults in search of their own, they rarely try to take over the pride were they were born.

    It's very likely that they're half brothers (having the same Lion as their Father, but NOT the same Lioness as their Mother. Another possibility is that their pride was sired by Two different male Lions, but who were brothers to each other. Thus Mufasa and Scar may be closer to Cousins, then Brothers. But in the absence of their original lineage, we must accept their being Brothers.

    Haha what a round about way to reinforce what we already know! As a Zoologist (animal expert) and die hard Lion King lover I was about to jump down into the towel section and mouth off at many moments in this video. Glad I waited until the end! Yes, that is how real lion prides work. Adult male lions (outsiders as male lions are, for the most part, expelled from a pride when they are ready to breed and take over their own prides...therefore becoming outsiders even if they were previously pride members) challenge the king. If they win (usually by killing the king) infanticide (the killing of all the previous king's offspring) will occur. But it is precisely by this reasoning that Scar and Mufasa must be brothers-otherwise the the eldest one (son of the previous king) would have been killed! Speaking of eldest, it was always my understanding that Scar was the eldest, from a previous litter of Ahadi and Uru. The reason why Mufasa got the throne was because he was more powerful and won a fight between himself and Scar when Ahadi died. Not sure where I read this...maybe it isnt canon? I also understood that Mufasa gave Scar that nickname as a taunting display of one-up-man-ship so that Scat (Taka) never forgets that he owes his life to Mufasa.

    • Maxine Walters
      Maxine Walters 3 months ago one said that Scar and Mufasa both had the same mother....male lions breed with all females of the pride. Potentially Scar was born to a lesser lioness (not the top notch Queen Uru)
