Disney teases Mufasa’s story, much before the events of Lion King

At the recently held CinemaCon (annual convention for movie theatre owners) in Las Vegas, Disney dropped its all-new trailer of Mufasa: The Lion King as the king of the Pride makes his return. 

The new film, Mufasa: The Lion King is expected to focus on the early years of the ruler of the animals, as well as his vicious younger brother Scar.  Playing the lead characters are Aaron Pierre and Kelvin Harrison Jr. as the younger version of Mufasa (voiced by James Earl Jones in the 1994 film and 2019 remake) and Scar (voiced by Jeremy Irons in the 1994 version and Chiwetel Ejiofor in the 2019 remake).

Although the footage was brief and didn’t divulge many details, onlookers agreed that it was majestic as it rightly should be. 

Plot of Mufasa

The film will explore the African savannah where the young lions grow up and it looks almost life-like. A young Mufasa is seen leaping over the rhinos and all other animals as a voiceover from Rafiki sets the scene for a story about “a lion who was born without a drop of nobility in its blood… a lion who would change our lives forever… a lion who will shape our destiny.”

The movie takes place much before the events shown in the 2019 and the 1994 films. According to the official logline, “Mufasa” returns to the African savanna as Rafiki tells Kiara, who is the daughter of Simba and Nala, the story of her grandfather. Billy Eichner and Seth Rogen’s Timon and Pumbaa help narrate the prequel.

Mufasa is slated to release in theatres on December 20. It comes after a super successful 2019 film by Jon Favreau. It opened to a roaring response at the box office. The Lion King was one of seven Disney films to cross the billion-dollar mark that year.
