We all listened to the news Jackie shared yesterday of the dwell-motion characteristics that were being shared at D23, wherever numerous extensive-awaited movies were being showcased. We weren’t anticipating that that record would include a new Lion King prequel that would depth the everyday living of the father character from the initial, Mufasa.
I’m a minor baffled listed here as although the voice of James Earl Jones will be the voiceover to my existence indefinitely, thanks to viewing this film in my formative a long time, Mufasa wasn’t exactly the most persuasive of characters. Confident, he was stoic and legendary, not to point out his demise scene traumatized me for existence like any great Disney motion picture could prior to the yr 2000, but very little profound that I imagined really demanded an origin tale. Now Scar, on the other hand? That is one messed up dude, and I would not brain learning how particularly he obtained to be so spiteful.
Scar, sadistic crazy-trousers uncle (form of, but not genuinely uncle— in accordance to Rob Minkoff), definitely has a story to tell, and I, for 1, want to enjoy it. How specifically did that evil dude stop up so significantly away from the loved ones qualities of loyalty and regard? What led to him playing dwelling in a den complete of bones with a pack of hench-hyenas? A thing is not adding up right here.
Mufasa is anticipated to be in theatres in 2024. Who else would like to choose a Cruella-style glance into the villain’s back again tale as a substitute?
