Mufasa – Forest Whitaker
Like father, like son. Whitaker has a quiet power to his performances, very similar to Boseman. He’s authoritative, but there’s a warm quality to his voice that would make Mufasa immediately empathetic. Since the powerful lion roars are all done in ADR, it would make for a beautiful contrast to have such a soft voice come out of such a powerful creature. I see Boseman growing into a very Whitaker-esque actor anyway, so to watch that literally happen on screen would be magical.
