Disney has premiered the first trailer for “Mufasa: The Lion King,” the upcoming musical drama prequel to “The Lion King”.

This new film follows the 2019 photorealistic animated feature which was based on the original Disney animated 1994 film.

In “Mufasa: The Lion King” we will return to the savannah where Rafiki tells Kiara (Simba and Nala’s daughter) the story of her grandfather… who we the viewers are still trying crying to our therapists about. Timon and Pumbaa also add commentary along the way as they explore Mufasa’s younger days and the rift that forms with his brother Taka (later to become ‘Scar’).

Aaron Pierre takes over the role of Mufasa made famous by legendary actor James Earl Jones with several other actors reprising their roles. Billy Eichner and Seth Rogen are back as Timon and Pumba, John Kani as Rafiko, Donald Glover as Simba, and Beyonce as Nana while Kelvin Harrison Jr. will take over the Scar role for the new picture.

“Hamilton” creator Lin-Manuel Miranda writes the songs for the film, as his long-time collaboration with Disney continues after films like “Moana,” “Encanto” and the live-action “The Little Mermaid”.

“Mufasa: The Lion King” will be in cinemas this Christmas from December 20th.
