After they were ignored and barely referenced in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, the Knights of Ren are back in the forefront. Director J.J. Abrams introduced the group in the first film of the sequel trilogy, which created a lot of mystery and intrigue among the core fan base. So it’s only natural that Abrams would bring them back for the finale in the trilogy he jumpstarted back in 2015.
In Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the trilogy’s main antagonist Kylo Ren was established as the group’s leader. However, the movie’s first official trailer hinted there might be tension between members of the group. With Abrams back at the helm, it will be fascinating to see how he explores their mythology within the realm of the Star Wars universe.

Here is the official synopsis for The Lion King:
Director Jon Favreau’s all-new “The Lion King” journeys to the African savanna where a future king is born. Simba idolizes his father, King Mufasa, and takes to heart his own royal destiny. But not everyone in the kingdom celebrates the new cub’s arrival. Scar, Mufasa’s brother—and former heir to the throne—has plans of his own. The battle for Pride Rock is ravaged with betrayal, tragedy and drama, ultimately resulting in Simba’s exile. With help from a curious pair of newfound friends, Simba will have to figure out how to grow up and take back what is rightfully his.
Directed by Jon Favreau from a script written by Jeff Nathanson, The Lion Kingstars Donald Glover as Simba, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter as Nala, James Earl Jones as Mufasa, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Scar, Seth Rogen as Pumbaa and Billy Eichner as Timon.
