The Lion King (2019) Poster


James Earl Jones: Mufasa



  • Mufasa : Everything you see - exists together in a delicate balance. While others search for what they can take, a true king searches for what he can give.

  • [last lines] 

    Mufasa : Remember...

    [Simba roars] 

  • Mufasa : Everything the light touches... is our kingdom. But a king's time as ruler rises and falls like the sun. One day, the sun will set on my time here, and will rise with you as the new king.

  • Mufasa : Simba, you must remember who you are: the one true king.

  • Mufasa : [from TV spot]  Look at the stars, the great kings look down on us from those stars... And so will I.

  • Young Simba : I'm going to be King of Pride Rock. I want to be brave like you.

    Mufasa : I'm only brave when I have to be.

  • Mufasa : [from trailer]  You must take your place... in the circle of life.

  • Zazu : The king approaches this is not a drill. His Majesty has requested an audience upon his entrance you will rise.

    Scar : Zazu you made me lose my lunch.

    Zazu : You will answer to Mufasa for missing the ceremony this morning.

    Scar : I answer to noone!

    Zazu : Scar, Scar, Scar, Scar, Scar, Scar, Scar, no, no don't look at me like that.

    Scar : Are you hungry... Zazu? Perhaps we could have a bite together.

    [lunges at Zazu] 

    Zazu : You can't eat me, it is forbidden remember in the king's court. Please, stop it!

    Mufasa : Scar!

    Scar : We'll look who's come to mingle with the commoners.

    Mufasa : Sarabi and I didn't see you at the presentation of Simba.

    Scar : Was that today, must've slipped my mind. Of course I meant no disrespect towards his Majesty or Sarabi. As you know I have tremendous respect for the crown

    Zazu : As the Kings brother you should be first in line.

    Scar : I was first in line, that is until the precious prince arrived

    Mufasa : Don't turn your back on me Scar!

    Scar : Oh no Mufasa, perhaps you shouldn't turn your back on me.

    Mufasa : Is that a challenge?

    Scar : I wouldn't dream of challenging you... again.

    Zazu : A wise decision you are no match for his Royal's most...

    Scar : Well as far as brains go I have the Lion's share, but when it comes to brute strength I'm afraid my big brother will always rule

    Mufasa : Not always Scar. One day it will be my son who rules, Simba will be your King.

    Scar : Then long live the king.

    Mufasa : What am I gonna do with him?

    Zazu : Come on, we both know he should've been expelled from the Pridelands long ago.

    Mufasa : He is my brother Zazu, this is his home as long as I am king, that'll never change.

    Zazu : Well there is one in every family sire, I had a cousin who thought he was a woodpecker he slammed his head into trees and beaks aren't built for it, he was concussed regularly, and oh youve gone ahh sure coming back.

  • Young Simba : Wait, Dad, let me come, I can help.

    Mufasa : No son, you must stay with the other cubs.

  • Mufasa : Don't turn your back on me, Scar!

    Scar : Oh, no, Mufasa. Perhaps you shouldn't turn your back on me.

    Mufasa : Is that a challenge?

  • Mufasa : [threateningly]  If you ever come near my son again...

    Shenzi : [nods her head; weakly]  No Mufasa, Never. Never again.

    Mufasa : You've been warned, Shenzi.

  • Scar : Long, live...

    [Raises paws] 

    Scar : THE KING!

    [Scar slaps Mufasa] 

    Mufasa : [screams as it falls]  Aaaa-aaaa-aaaahhhh!

    Young Simba : [cries out]  No-oooo-oooo-oooo!

  • Mufasa : Zazu? Take Nala back to Pride Rock.

    Zazu : Yes, sire. Don't be too hard on him, sire. I remember a cub. A certain headstrong cub. Who was always getting into scrapes and he achieved some prominence, did he not, sire?

    Mufasa : I have to teach my son a lesson.

    Zazu : Nala, come along.

  • Mufasa : [as ghost; to Simba]  I never left you. I never will. Remember who you are.

  • Mufasa : Believe in yourself and there will come a day when others will have no choice but to believe with you.

  • Scar : Mufasa, quick! Stampede in the gorge, Simba's down there!

    Mufasa : Simba?

  • Mufasa : Stay low to the ground, check the wind... the shadows, and wait for the perfect moment to pounce.

  • Mufasa : As king I was proud of one thing, you as my son. That alone. No, that is forever.

  • Mufasa : [to Simba; regarding everything the light touches]  It belongs to know one, but it is yours to protect.
