The Lion King prequel has supposedly found its two lead characters! According to a report by Entertainment Weekly, The Lion King Prequel has extended the actors who will voice the characters of Mufasa and Scar.
As demonstrated by EW, it seems, by all accounts, to be that the Barry Jenkins-helmed Lion King Prequel has found its Mufasa and Scar. Reports ensure that Aaron Pierre is planned to voice the incredible Mufasa in the impending film, while Kelvin Harrison Jr will voice one of Disney’s most great villains Scar a.k.a. Taka. The outlet avows that the Dear White People boss will in a little while be rejoining with Aaron Pierre who included in Jenkins’ film The Underground Railroad.
Pierre will purportedly play a more young transformation of Mufasa, while Kelvin Harrison Jr will play Taka. Fans of the franchise, who read the spin-off book The Lion King: Six New Adventures will review that Taka is Scar’s veritable name. According to the report, the name Mufasa implies “master” in Swahili, while Taka purportedly addresses feelings like “want” and “desire,” which talks well to Scar’s individual. Regardless, another ordinary understanding for Taka is “soil.” It wouldn’t be crazy to acknowledge that Taka no doubt changed his name to Scar considering the importance and apparently also detests his family since he was an energetic cub.
Official attestation for the approaching film’s script is yet to be made, recalling for whether the film will cover the part where Taka officially becomes Scar. In any case, writer Jeff Nathanson will purportedly be returning to script the film. Composer Hans Zimmer will moreover be returning to the endeavor and will be joined by Pharrell Williams and Nicholas Britell this time around. The film will supposedly be a follow-up prequel to 2019’s The Lion King which was directed and produced by Jon Favreau.
