It’s one that I didn’t know. Mufasa: The Lion King is a prequel to The Lion King, arguably the best Disney animated film of all time. Live-Action, for me, is down. While the film won’t be released until 2024, director Barry Jenkins (Moonlight) shared a never-before-seen preview.

Mufasa: The Lion King tells the story of the rise of one of the hailed kings of the Pride Lands. And, the story will be told in flashbacks. Rafiki, Timon and Pumbaa tell the story of Mufasa to a young lion cub.


The live-action reimagining of the animated feature that started it all! Rachel Zeglar (West Side Story) stars as snow, and Gal Gadot (wonder woman) as his evil stepmother, the Queen.
