Disney villain Scar is back with a new tale from Dynamite Entertainment.
This captivating new story is set within the world of The Lion King between scenes from the iconic original film. With Simba’s iconic birth, it has fully set in that Scar is never meant to be king while his brother and nephew inhabit Pride Rock. Unable to accept that fate, the imposing, corrupt lion begins to formulate devious plans. This journey will bring him face-to-face with the mysterious and fan-favorite shaman Rafiki. What more could be revealed in this first-ever spotlight on the character?
“I’ll never forget the first time I saw the original film,” said writer Chuck Brown. “I’ve watched the whole movie over and over again to prepare. We had to find a way to make our story fit in seamlessly with the film. This story also needs to add something of value to the original story.”
Fans keeping track of all the colorful characters in the Lion King mythos will be excited to see some interact together that never do in the film. Which characters from Mufasa’s inner circle may have actually thought Scar could be a better heir? Brown and Fraley will also be introducing the new characters of the Wake, a pack of winged foes whose scheming and cunning is second only to Scar. Dynamite invites fans to discover a whole new side of the Pride Lands.
