The video delves into the early years of King Mufasa and his brother Scar, offering insight on the events that molded their futures. Set against the breathtaking backdrop of the African savanna, it depicts Mufasa’s path to become the wise and noble ruler of the Pride Lands, as well as Scar’s jealously and ambition.


Seth Rogen, Billy Eichner, and John Kani reprise their roles from the 2019 version, providing voices for recognizable characters. Aaron Pierre and Kelvin Harrison Jr. join them, playing the younger versions of King Mufasa and Scar, respectively, adding fresh dimension to these famous roles.


The prequel’s development was confirmed in September 2020, with Jenkins directing and Nathanson writing the script.
