Question, who is the evilest Disney villain ever?

Cruella De Vil?


No, the most evil Disney villain isn't any of those women... it's actually not even half human.

It's a lion.

Yes, we're talking about Scar, the villain of The Lion King.


Let's face it, if you're willing to kill your own brother in front of your nephew and scar him for life (pun intended) then you've got to be pretty damn evil.

That's some true Game Of Thrones-like plotting right there...


As we all know, there's a live-action reboot of The Lion King coming our way and after a VERY long casting process, the team behind the new film may have found their new Scar!

Oscar-winning actor Chiwetel Ejiofor is in talks to play the villainous lion according to The Hollywood Reporter and we are so ready for this!


Chiwetel is an amazing actor, you would have seen him in 12 Years A Slave, Love Actually and most recently alongside Benedict Cumberbatch in Doctor Strange.

This guy is a true film legend and will honestly be a perfect addition to the already tremendous Lion King cast.

Now if only they would tell us if Beyoncé was playing Nala already...
