First adventure trailer for Disney’s MUFASA: THE LION KING

Disney has released the first trailer for its next film Mufasa: The Lion Kingwhich is a prequel to the original film that will tell the story of the rise of the greatest kings of the Pride Lands… Mufasa.

If you are a fan of The Lion King, this is a story that might interest you. It comes from director Barry Jenkins of Moonlight AND If Beale Street Could Talkwho was very excited to tell this story.

Like many Disney fans, he grew up watching The Lion King and explained at CinemaCon that he watched it hundreds of times while babysitting it. It seems like he went out and made a visually stunning film.

The story “enlists Rafiki to pass on the legend of Mufasa to the young lion cub Kiara, daughter of Simba and Nala, with Timon and Pumbaa lending their signatures.

“Told in flashback, the story presents Mufasa as an orphaned cub, lost and alone until he meets a friendly lion named Taka, the heir to a royal line.

“The chance encounter sets in motion an expansive journey of an extraordinary group of misfits in search of their destiny: their bonds will be tested as they must work together to escape a menacing and deadly enemy.”

The film’s voice cast includes Aaron Pierre as Mufasa, Kelvin Harrison Jr. like Taka, Seth Rogen as Pumba, Billy Eichner in the role of Timone, Giovanni Cani like Rafiki.

The rest of the ensemble cast includes Tiffany Boone, Kagiso Lediga, Preston Nymann, Thanks Newton, Mads Mikkelsen, Anika Noni Rose, Keith David, Giovanni Cani, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter like Nala and presentation Blue Ivy Carter as Kiara, daughter of King Simba and Queen Nala.

The film’s screenplay was written by Jeff Nathanson, the same writer behind 2019’s The Lion King.
