Scar is well . . . scary.
As a 27-year-old woman, I found myself catching my breath when Scar appeared on the screen for the first time. Thanks to brilliant CGI technology, the villain looks even more frightening and realistic than I ever thought possible. Factor in Chiwetel Ejiofor's chilling voice, and yep, he's the perfect bad guy. Though Scar's character doesn't deviate much from the 1994 version in terms of lines and mannerisms, his lifelike appearance is certainly jarring at first and makes those scary scenes that much scarier. While there's not a whole lot parents can do in the moment, warning your children that they might be afraid at first could be helpful.
