Kelvin Harrison Jr. is also a fairly new actor to the scene, with his credits including films like Luce, Monsters and Men, and It Comes at Night.

James Earl Jones voiced Mufasa in both the 1994 original film and 2019 remake. Meanwhile, Jeremy Irons voiced Scar in 1994 and Chiwetel Ejiofor took over in 2019. No official word if James will reprise his role this time. At 93, he may be looking to sit this one out.
