Something has changed very rapidly which made Bob Iger lead ‘House of the Mouse’ company to bring back it’s well established IP’s once again- hence, ignoring it’s originality.

Between the chaos of the Hollywood, the Walt Disney Animation studios is now jumping back on it’s classic tales by remaking them into a live action project- one such name is ‘Mufasa The Lion King‘. A prequel to it’s original 2019 version of ‘The Lion King‘- this movie is under development for quiet sometime and we do knows that you are wondering about it’s updates.

It means the prequel will show us two separate timelines being told parallel to each other.

It could also give us a glimpse at Simba’s new position as king of Pride Rock while also showing how his father ascended to that role. One if the biggest revelation which is coming straight from Disney is the fact that Mufasa The Lion King will finally reveal how Scar got his ‘scar’ and how this sweet little lion got into his villain arc.

You can also expect some surprising twists because we are still talking about a prequel which contains many possibilities- however, the story is still looking pretty fantastic.
