Disney Is Doing a “Lion King” Prequel

Not everyone loved Disney’s “Lion King” remake.  The more realistic-looking CGI animals just lacked the warmth and expressiveness of the cartoon versions from the original.

But that isn’t stopping Disney from heading back to Pride Rock . . . this time for a PREQUEL.  It’ll be about the younger versions of brothers Mufasa and Scar.

 

Director Barry Jenkins says, quote, “Kings aren’t just born, they aren’t just made.  They have to become who they are through a series of events that a lot of people can relate to.”

 

Sounds like it’s an “origin story” about how Mufasa became king . . . and Scar became super evil and jealous.
