Scars Undignified EndEveryone remembers Scar, Simba’s sly uncle and traitor to King Mufasa. Scar’s implied death comes at the end of the film, but the character also makes a disturbing cameo in another Disney film.
At the beginning of The Lion King, Mufasa asks Zazu what should be done about Scar. Zazu says, sarcastically, that he’d make a handsome throw rug. ‘Just think,’ Zazu says, ‘whenever he gets dirty you could take him out and beat him!’ Dark stuff, Disney.
Three years later, Disney released Hercules, a movie where Scar reappears as an actual throw rug! It’s unusual for Disney to make light of a character’s death – even a traitorous villain – which makes this one dark, creepy Easter egg.
