The Lion King prequel 'Mufasa' is coming to cinemas at the end of the year and the first trailer has just been released.

The trailer not only showed us Mufasa's journey and beginnings, but also announced Blue Ivy's appearance in the film.

Blue Ivy is set to play the voice of Kiara, the daughter of King Simba and Queen Nala (voiced by Beyoncé). Billy Eichner and Seth Rogen, who previously played Timon and Pumba, will also appear in the prequel.

Mufasa director Barry Jenkins told Good Morning America "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."

Take a look at the first trailer above.
