The Lion King: Call to Adventue
Nala and the Return


Scar symoblizes jealous and darkness within a person. Simba has to face this in order to move forward on his call to adventure.
Scar is jealous of Simba's position as the next king of Pride Rock, so he plots to kill his brother and nephew in order to seize the throne. Scar arranges for Simba and Nala to get into trouble in the elephant graveyard, but Mufasa saves them. Scar calls up an entire army of hyenas and promises that when he is king the hyenas will "never go hungry again". The hyenas triggers a wildebeest stampede meant to kill both Simba and Mufasa. Mufasa manages to save his son, but as he tries to escape by climbing up the gorge, Scar murders his brother by throwing him off the cliff back into the stampede. Scar then convinces Simba that Mufasa's death is his fault. Scar advises him to run away, then orders the hyenas to kill him, but Simba escapes and flees the Pride Lands. Scar then returns to Pride Rock and assumes the throne, telling the pride that both Mufasa and Simba died in the gorge. He lets the hyenas into the Pride Lands, declaring "the dawning of a new era" and promising "a great and glorious future". However, Scar's reign is a disaster: food and water become scarce and most animals die or move away, causing the kingdom to become a barren wasteland. Although indifferent to the suffering of his subjects, Scar demands their loyalty and insists on his quality as king, becoming enraged at the mere mention of Mufasa's name. After Simba returns to challenge his uncle for the throne, Scar resumes his deceitful manipulation of Simba, but is soon forced to admit to everyone that he killed Mufasa. While Scar's hyenas fight Simba's supporters, Simba confronts Scar himself. Scar attempts to deflect Simba's anger towards the hyenas, not knowing that the hyenas can hear him, but Simba no longer trusts anything Scar says. After an intense fight, Simba manages to throw Scar off the cliff. Scar survives the fall but is surrounded by hyenas; determined to get revenge on Scar for denouncing them as 'the enemy' on top of years of broken promises, they mauled their fallen leader to death.
