It's official, there's gonna be a tlk remake.

I think its a bit odd that no other site has picked up this rumor. Even ones with little credibility can smell the poo from a mile away.

This is a ‘my uncle works at Nintendo’ level of fake rumor.

In the original Scar was a more cerebral less brute force villain than characters like Gaston or even Jafar.

He only got his paws dirty when he absolutely had to, otherwise he usually coerced others to do his dirty work for him.

He had a silver tongue. Hoping the remake keeps that aspect of him without making too many changes to the character.

I'm thinking they'll keep the silver tongued aspect, they just won't have him be the oh-so-obvious, "how could the characters miss this!?" villain that he is in the original. Scar's a great villain, but I've always seen him a bit of a 2D character because he just exists in the film as this avatar of evil and we're never really given a reason for it aside from vague allusions to him simply being the jealous type rather than having some sort of legitimate grievance. Given the recent kick Disney's been having with MCU villains with decently fleshed-out motivations, I think elaborating on some of those aspects of Scar's motivations would make him more compelling as both a character and villainous figure.

Another behind-the-scenes news story from March that flew under the radar until recently, but apparently Chance the Rapper and Pharrell Williams (who you might remember was Seth Rogan's vocal coach for this) might be involved on the soundtrack as well in some capacity. There's a photo from Chance's Twitter account of them sitting with John Favreau and Hans Zimmer.

Yeah, I have a feeling that the teaser will be attached to Mary Poppins Returns.

I'm actually hoping it comes out next week (Thanksgiving in the U.S.). It and the Avengers 4 trailer within days of each other would be great.

I've seen people in other movie forums talking about seeing activity on Twitter that supports the trailer coming this week if not next. Whether it's a result of the ScreenRant article or not, I don't know, but it does fit the pattern I've been expecting for a while now. Also, Jeremy Conrad, a guy who's been making predictions and releasing leaks (mostly MCU related) and has generally been fairly credible on this stuff, just tweeted his disappointment that his earlier prediction of a major Disney trailer release this week (he was expecting Avengers 4) will be The Lion King instead, and subsequent things I've seen claim it'll be airing/releasing tomorrow evening between 8-11 p.m.
