After this don't know what to think anymore WHY DO YOU HAVE TO DO THIS TO US DISNEY!?!
You can thank Rob Minkoff and Don Han, the director and producer of the classic Lion King film, for shattering your childhood with this news. If you stopped reading this to go rewatch the movie you might be thinking "but Mufasa refers to Scar as his brother?" turns out that's just because they're part of the same pride.
"Occasionally there are prides that do have two male lions, in an interesting dynamic because they’re not equals. One lion will always kind of be off in the shadows."
Han Also Said "We were trying to use those animal truths to underpin the story so we sort of figured Scar and Mufasa couldn’t really be from the same gene pool, In fact, that’s what [Scar] says. There’s a line, he goes, ‘I’m from the shallow end of the gene pool.’"
And if you're feeling personally effected by this news, dont worry, you're not alone as you can see by these tweets:
