The Lion King is remembered as one of Disney's great masterpieces. It told the story of Simba, a lion cub raised right by his noble father, Mufasa. However, Simba's cousin and Mufasa's brother Scar ends up murdering Mufasa for the throne in one of Disney's darkest and most memorable scenes. This moment kicked off Simba's journey of self-discovery that led to a cathartic battle with Scar in the movie's climax. From that point on, The Lion King was more than just a single film. It opened up a franchise that includes books, comics, TV series, a Broadway adaptation, and even feature-length official sequels such as Simba's Pride. Today, let's remember the dark shadow cast by Scar over the franchise with this special listing from Simba's Pride.
