The Lion King And Macbeth?
In The Lion King the lion Scar best resembles Macbeth. Macbeth relates to Scar because Duncan's death is planned after Macbeth is told of the witches prophecy that he can be king. After Duncan is murdered his sons flee the area out of fear, like in The Lion King. In The Lion King Scar wants to get rid of Mufasa for the same reasons that Macbeth wanted to get rid of Duncan. In the end Macduff has a stand off with Macbeth seeking revenge for the murders of his wife and son. In The Lion King, Simba comes back to fight Scar. Scar underestimates Simba's ability, just like Macbeth underestimated Macduff. The two also have many of the same struggles, one being the battle between good and evil. In Macbeth, the fights Macbeth faces against evil show this issue. In The Lion King the fight between Scar and the evil he has done also shows this theme. Another way both are similar is the fact that in both their characters change from good to sinful over the course of the story. To sum it up, immoral plots are found in both Macbeth and The Lion King. Scar plans to kill Mufasa and take the throne just as Macbeth plans to kill Duncan and others to get to the throne, this is what fuels the battle between good and evil.
