Blue Ivy Carter Makes Her Feature Film Debut Alongside Beyoncé in Disney's 'Mufasa: The Lion King'

Blue Ivy Carter, the 12-year-old daughter of Jay Z and Beyoncé, is set to make her first appearance in a feature film, voicing the character Kiara in Disney’s upcoming movie “Mufasa: The Lion King.” Beyoncé, who previously portrayed Nala in the 2019 adaptation, will reprise her role as Kiara’s mother.

The film, slated for release in December, serves as a prequel to the original “Lion King” story, delving into Mufasa’s origin and his childhood alongside his brother, Scar. Directed by Barry Jenkins, the movie promises to expand upon the beloved tale with new characters like Kiro, who will play a significant role.

Jenkins was inspired to cast Blue Ivy after hearing her narration on the audiobook “Hair Love,” and both Beyoncé and Blue Ivy enthusiastically embraced the opportunity to work together on screen.

The star-studded cast also includes Aaron Pierre as Mufasa, Kelvin Harrison Jr. as Scar in his youth, and Tiffany Boone as Mufasa’s future queen, Sarabi. This project marks another milestone in the collaboration between Beyoncé and Blue Ivy, who previously shared the Grammy-winning song and music video “Brown Skin Girl” from “The Lion King: The Gift” album.
