Barry Jenkins is taking it upon himself to adapt a brand new prequel for 2019 The Lion King remake which will focus primarily on Mufasa, which is given the fitting title of Mufasa: The Lion King. It seems that the story will take place in two timelines as Rafiki, Timo and Pumbaa will be telling the story of Mufasa to a lion cub, which may be the child of Simba. Attendees got a quick teaser during their attendance but it certainly sounds like a curious direction for the already bizarre prequel..
