Young Simba idolizes his father, King Mufasa, and takes to heart his own royal destiny. But not everyone in the kingdom celebrates the new cub’s arrival as Scar, Mufasa’s brother—and former heir to the throne—has plans of his own. With help from a curious pair of newfound friends, Simba will have to figure out how to grow up and take back what is rightfully his, while learning the true meaning of responsibility and bravery. This live action re-make of Disney’s animated classic features an all-star cast, including Donald Glover, Beyoncé and James Earl Jones reprising his role as Mufasa.
