SALT LAKE CITY—The first full-length trailer for Disney’s “The Lion King”dropped Wednesday morning, and social media users have a lot to say about it, particularly about the look of the film’s snarling feline villain.

Some have pointed out that Scar (Chiwetel Ejiofor) looks pretty different from how he looks in the original film, and not just because of his CGI animation.

For some, Scar’s “live-action” treatment is doing the original animation a disservice.

Others are asking what the deal is with his mane.

For others, the lion’s new look looks just right.

What do you think about Scar’s new look?
