Kelvin Harrison Jr. And Aaron Pierre Join Barry Jenkins’ ‘The Lion King’ Prequel

Barry Jenkins’ upcoming prequel to 2019’s The Lion King is taking shape. Kelvin Harrison Jr. and Aaron Pierre have joined the cast as young Mufasa and young Scar (going by the name Take), respectively. The upcoming Disney film will dive into Mufasa’s backstory and more of what leads up to the events of the film we’re all familiar with. Expect Jenkins’ film to look similar to that of 2019’s “live-action” outing.
