The Lion King (1994)

The Lion King (1994)

The Siblings: Mufasa (James Earl Jones) and Scar (Jeremy Irons)

What puts them at odds? Mufasa is big, magnificent and leader of his tribe. Scar is so jealous, his eyes have quite literally turned green.

The name “Mufasa” means “King” in the Manazoto language. The name “Scar” presumably means “treacherous, backstabbing bastard with a lust for power”, because that’s the appropriate description for Mufasa’s little brother. Bitter, we guess, because he has an English accent like the local birds, instead of lion-like African-American tones, Scar plots against his brother for leadership of the tribe, and shows himself willing to resort to murder for his own ends. It doesn’t end well for him, however, because while Scar might succeed in the short term, Mufasa’s son, a veritable chip off the old block, has the last laugh.

Which sibling is your favourite?
