Hugh Jackman is Scar in the Lion King Remake

Hugh Jackman Joins 'The Lion King' Remake as Scar

John Favreau's The Lion King has its villain. Hugh Jackman will play the role of Scar. Jackman is coming off the success of Logan.

It was recently revealed John Oliver would be Zazu. Now we have Hugh Jackman as Scar. This obviously means Jeremy Irons will not be back to voice the villain he made famous.

The role of Nala still hasn't been announced. Favreau is attracting big names though. The Lion King remake is taking shape that's for sure. I'm excited to watch Hugh Jackman voice Scar.
