Trailer – Mufasa : The Lion King

Mufasa : The Lion King is the latest live action film from Disney. The prequel to the Lion King explores Mufasa’s origins and how he rose to become king.

“Mufasa: The Lion King” enlists Rafiki to relay the legend of Mufasa to young lion cub Kiara, daughter of Simba and Nala, with Timon and Pumbaa lending their signature schtick. Told in flashbacks, the story introduces Mufasa as an orphaned cub, lost and alone, until he meets a sympathetic lion named Taka – the heir to a royal bloodline. The chance meeting sets in motion an expansive journey of an extraordinary group of misfits searching for their destiny.

The trailer reveals some cast including returning cast Donald Glover as Simba, Beyonce as Nala, Billy Eichner as Timon and Seth Rogen as Pumbaa. Aaron Pierre will take up the voice of Mufasa and Blue Ivy-Carter will voice Kiara.

Music has always been a big part of the Lion King franchise, and this time around Lin-Manuel Miranda is writing the film’s songs. Said Miranda, “Elton John. Tim Rice. Hans Zimmer. Lebo M. Mark Mancina. Beyoncé, Labrinth, Ilya Salmanzadeh. Beau Black, Ford Riley, the incredible music team on ‘The Lion Guard,’ and so many musical contributors over the years. ‘The Lion King’ has an incredible musical legacy with music from some of the greatest songwriters around, and I’m humbled and proud to be a part of it. It’s been a joy working alongside Barry Jenkins to bring Mufasa’s story to life, and we can’t wait for audiences to experience this film in theaters.”

Mufasa : The Lion King is directed by Barry Jenkins and will release in cinemas December 19.
