Now, this is awesome! Back in September, Disney confirmed that a remake of the 1994 animated movie, ‘The Lion King’ will be taking place. The movie will be directed by John Favreau, known for directing many hit movies including ‘Elf’, ‘Iron Man’, ‘Iron Man 2’, ‘Chef’ and the remake of ‘The Jungle Book’.
On Wednesday, Disney posted a tweet of the stars in the cast. Donald Glover will play the role of Simba. Beyonce will Nala and James Early Jones will revive his role of Mufasa.
Hans Zimmer will also return providing the score for the movie, just like he did in 1994.
Check out the full cast in the tweet below…
We’ll be waiting for a while though. The film is set to be released on July 19, 2019.
