The director and producer let us know that we have been wrong all along. Even though Mufasa refers to himself as Scar's brother, it turns out he didn't mean his biological brother. He means it more like a figurative brother.
Disney Rob Minkoff and Don Hahn who were the director and producer of The Lion King respectively confirmed to HelloGiggles that they are not genetically related at all. The way lions operate in the wild…when the male lion gets old, another rogue lion comes and kills the head of the pride.
What that does is it causes the female lions to go into heat [to reproduce], and then the new younger lion kills the king and then he kills all the babies. One lion will always kind of be off in the shadows. They even meant for the "gene pool" reference to explain it. It's a biological desire to want to be king. I don't know that this really forgives him for throwing Mufasa over a cliff, but at least it wasn't his biological brother?
We obviously all know how this ends, but crazy to think that we've been wrong all along!
