Wait, there's a trailer now? Crap. I need to watch this. I'll comment more later; I've already been too busy analyzing the new Star Wars teaser this weekend.

The only issue I have with Scar is that he seems very small for an adult lion. Other than that the trailer looks nice.

I gotta be honest, I haven't really liked anything what I've seen or heard about this remake. The whole thing just seems so unnecessary to me, and I honestly just... dislike what I see.

But, if you're correct in some of your ideas and they're bringing in elements from The Lion Guard, or loosely tying it into this movie (similar to the route Disney has taken with Star Wars and tying the animated series into the movies very closely), that would be awesome. It could show they might have more planned for the franchise and building it into a bigger, more connected universe as a whole, which has been the "big trend" recently. TLG was really the first of the "new Disney shows" that they're making based on their movies, and while it was a decent hit I'd say, it never really managed to take off because of its limitations to such a young audience and I feel like Disney as a company kind of lost its hopes in it themselves. But they've since learned and taken pretty big steps in their other new shows to make them far less "kid-oriented" and just taking them more seriously. So what we could end up getting is a completely new TLK-series with a more grown-up approach (and since TLG is coming to an end, I'd hope the same creators got their chance at working on something like that with the same characters and concepts they've helped built). Of course, it's all speculation at this point, but I've said it many times that, with TLG being a decent success and this new remake coming out, especially if it financially does well, I think they might have more planned for the franchise. They've been pushing it quite a bit recently.

So yeah, while I'm not a fan of much I'm seeing about this remake film, if it helps kickstart bigger things like that for the franchise, that would be awesome. Time will tell.

I don't quite agree that adult wild males look like Scar. Scar here is too thin.

Look at these males. They are athletes, no excess fat.

Yesm he's just 4 years old. Mapogos' descendant.
The age of Simba when he returned I think.

I thought that Lioness that Scar passed by might be Nala. Thanks for clarifying that.
