Most Sinister Childhood Villains Of All Time
The Lion King
The parallels to Shakespeares Hamlet are well noted with Scars characterisation closely following that of Claudius in Shakespeares epic of violence, death and insanity. Scar is a character with no redeeming features. Brutal, cunning and ruthless, he will stop at nothing to claim the throne of his own. The pursuit of that goal involves the murder of his brother and attempted murder of his orphan son, showing that family means nothing to him. The Lion King is one of Disneys very finest and the most disturbing thing about its antagonist is the unrestrained glee he shows as he watches Mufasa die.
