Trailer: The Prequel To 2019’s ‘The Lion King’ Comes Disney’s ‘Mufasa: The Lion King’

Disney has released the trailer for Mufasa: The Lion King, the upcoming prequel to 2019’s The Lion King. Moonlight director Barry Jenkins is directing the film from a script by Jeff Nathanson. It will hit theatres on December 20, 2024.

“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,” said Lin-Manuel Miranda, who is writing the film’s songs with Mark Mancina, with additional music and performances by Lebo M. “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 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,” says the synopsis. “The chance meeting sets in motion an expansive journey of an extraordinary group of misfits searching for their destiny—their bonds will be tested as they work together to evade a threatening and deadly foe.”
