Today, Walt Disney revealed the first teaser trailer for their upcoming prequel Mufasa: The Lion King. The film is going to be directed by Oscar award-winning director Barry Jenkins. Before tackling the prequel, Jenkins worked on several serious dramas, including Best Picture winner Moonlight and If Beale Street Could Talk. While the original 2019 remake made over $1.6 billion at the worldwide box office, many fans were disappointed that it was more or less a shot-for-shot remake of the classic 1990s animated film. However, it looks like Jenkins will take those criticisms seriously as he tackles his first animated/live-action film.
