The internet is angry about the way Scar looks in the Lion King remake
This week, Disney released the full trailer for the Lion King remake, giving fans the first look at Scar - as well as that stampede.
The clip, which runs for just under two minutes, was released to mark 100 days until Simba arrives in cinemas.
However, as well as excitement, there was anger... a lot of anger. Scar looks completely different and people are genuinely like WTF.
He looks... a bit eh, rough (?) in the trailer and everyone is pointing it out. Everyone.
live-action Scar is not wickedly sexy like the original Lion King cartoon babe was, so i'm out pic.twitter.com/4F3I3YOCqC

just watched the trailer for the lion king and am disgusted to find that scar isn't sexy, goth, or gay. just an ugly lion! what's the point

Biggest takeaway from the Lion King trailer: this film’s depiction of Scar is weak. Scar is probably one of the most important parts of this movie. Scar is one of Disney’s greatest villains and this film’s Scar to me will not even closely compare to the original. pic.twitter.com/SaD5PnBWyd

okay, I like the new lion king trailer. I’m just wondering how we’re supposed to tell these lions and lionesses apart when they all look like real animals. Scar isn’t even darker or anything. He just looks like he got ran over by a truck. #NotMyScar

part of me is super excited for the lion king movie bc the lion king is my fave disney movie alongside bambi but. this isn’t scar. why doesn’t he have a black mane and darker fur. if you showed this to someone they wouldn’t guess this was scar pic.twitter.com/JKJ2b3ycJA

Giving out about Scar aside, we cannot wait to see this on the big screen.
The Lion King will be released in Irish cinemas on July 19. But in the meantime, you can check out the trailer below.
