It was announced, after the critical and commercail success of the Jungle Book remake, that the director Jon Favreau would be taking on the project.

I loved the Jungle Book remake, I felt it was its own film, whilst not taking from the magic of the original, but still keeping its identity and charm. Excited for this, though I feel like its songs are even more important than the Jungle Book, and that was the weakest part of that remake.

I adored seeing The Jungle Book re-imagined in a live action, the effects were incredible so I'm sure The Lion King, with a similar setting will look equally fantastic when portrayed more realistically. I do agree that The Jungle Book songs in the new version weren't one of the high points and the excellent soundtrack in the real Lion King film is probably its most important feature so I hope they don't edit and/or cut them too much. It's going to be very exciting to see the likes of Rafiki, Timon & Pumba in live-action, as well as all the lions of course biggrin.gif

Seth Rogen has been cast as Pumbaa and Billy Eichner as Timon!

I think the former is quite a fun choice actually, can see him pulling it off. Idek who the latter is tbh heehee.gif

Billy does the "Billy on the Streets" youtube videos! He's an interestingly strong choice but I can't believe how perfect a choice Seth is for Pumbaa!

The full cast!

Most excited for Beyonce of course but I do think Seth Rogen is a fab choice for Pumbaa too. I'm looking forward to Florence Kasumba too, she's been fierce af from her teeny role in the Marvel universe so far and left a big impression with very little screen time so I think she'll make a great hyena! A bit of a shame they didn't bring back Jeremy Irons for Scar though, I can't really imagine anyone else in the role sad.gif

I was going to riot if James Earl Jones didn't come back for Mufasa.

The combined OVERACTING of James Earl Jones and Alfre Woodard together on screen may be enough to RUPTURE ALL OF SPACE AND TIME

I have mixed feeling about Beyonce being in here tbh...there are plenty of other talented female artists that they could have picked...and I know this is not about acting that much but still.

As someone who is not a Beyonce fan.. I actually think she's a great choice for Nala! I also think John Oliver is genius casting as Zazu!

The whole list seems ok actually, my only concern is Chiwetel as Scar... he's a fantastic actor, so I probs should have faith, but I have very mild doubts. Interesting choice for sure.
