Yeah, I get the sentiment, but a white person playing a non-white character very quickly leads to blackface, and that would not end well for her.
Now that Lindsay's suggested it, I kinda do want to see Scar Jo as Nelson Mandela.
Preferably in something satirical, so it can appropriately make fun of the concept.
Ooh, maybe we could get a black woman to play Scar Jo playing Nelson Mandela.

I don't have much confidence that the new Mulan will borrow more from the original source material. If The Jungle Book is any indication, these remakes are solidly based on the notion of the Disney films even when they are completely different from them.
@HailMuffins I've heard Lindsay say somewhat nice-ish things about the live-action Jungle Book (which interestingly has ScarJo has a gender-flipped snake lmao) for similar reasons, strange how that seems to be left out of the current discussion about the remakes.
Pete's Dragon I've also heard good things about, also notable for actually probably being the only remake where there's some consensus on being better than the original.
I liked the Pete’s Dragon remake, although it’s basically “E.T. with a dragon”. It also struck a good balance of making the titular dragon expressive and creatively designed while realistically rendered.
Ironic since Spielberg once said he named the boy from E.T. "Elliot" after the dragon.

What did Lindsay mean about Scar being an incel in the new movie?
Uhh because he wants power he believes he's not entitled to?
I don't even know what that word means.
An incel is basically a guy who's pissed off he can't get laid who figures the reason why he can't get laid is because its everyone else's fault, especially women instead of himself.

It's short for "involuntarily celibate", which tells you a lot about the mindset right there.
Yeah, but how does that apply to Scar here? I'm guessing they incorporated the deleted scenes of him hitting on Nala?
The Chad Mufasa vs the Virgin Scar.

Scar's not a virgin either. Otherwise, Kovu wouldn't be a thing in Simba's Pride.
I don't think Kovu actually is his biological son.
That, and all of Disney's direct-to-video sequels should be treated as apocryphal at best.
Maybe Nuka, maybe Nuka.
I assume that it's because in the original Scar is heavily coded as gay. The remake probably removed that, while keeping everything else identical (Like Scar noting how he's not as physical as Mufasa), so Scar comes across as an Incel pissed at the "Chad" Mufasa. If they kept the later scene where he slaps around Serabi, that'd further the whole vibe of "Pissed at women for not being into him"

They explicitly say Kovu's not Scar's son. Because then he'd be Kiara's cousin and that'd be gross.
Though considering they are royalty........
I mean Nala had to come from somewhere!
Well, they ARE lions, so being an incel would be very fitting for Scar.
I vaguely remember one of my parents or siblings explaining to me Nala is Mufasa's daughter also, and that is just how animals work, when I was a child. I kinda always assumed this was common knowledge.
Yeah, except lions don't usually mate with family members.
I think that's part of the reason why male lions are forced to leave their birth prides.

How well does it match the trope?
