See Beyoncé and daughter Blue Ivy Carter in the trailer for ‘Lion King’ prequel ‘Mufasa’

12-year-old Blue Ivy Carter will join her famous mom, Beyoncé, in the upcoming ‘Lion King’ prequel film, ‘Mufasa: The Lion King’.

The film’s first trailer has been released, in which Blue Ivy voices the role of Kiara, the daughter of King Simba and Queen Nala (to be voiced again by Donald Glover and Beyoncé, who also appeared in the 2019 film). Billy Eichner and Seth Rogen, who previously played Timon and Pumba, are also set to reprise their roles in ‘Mufasa’.

‘Mufasa’ director Barry Jenkins told Good Morning America it was “really special” to see the mother-daughter duo at work: “I was so glad that both Beyoncé and Blue Ivy were down to do [Mufasa], and watching them work together was just really special. Beyoncé is this larger-than-life figure, but when she’s working with her daughter, when she’s in the room with her daughter, she’s a mom first. So much of that energy bled into the film.”

‘Mufasa: The Lion King’ hits theaters on December 20; you can take a look at the trailer – here.
