Lion King

Disney showed off a minute of the live action Lion King, and it apparently blew fans away.

Starring Donald Glover as grown Simba, James Earl Jones returning as Mustafa, Billy Eichner as Timon, Seth Rogen as Pumba, James Oliver as Zazu, and Hugh Jackman as Scar.

They're trying to get Beyonce to voice Nala. The New Day (of WWE fame) have expressed their desire to provide voices.

Re: Lion King

So is Disney gonna remake every single movie as live action? Jungle book, beauty and the beast, Aladdin, lion King and so on. Probably a decade away fromive action Frozen lol.

Yes they are. They're currently casting for the Mulan live-action movie as we speak. Already have a director.

As well as Toy Story 4, Incredibles 2, Frozen 2, The Nutcracker, Wreck It Ralph 2, presumably a live action Dumbo, and one that I've become increasingly excited for, Mary Poppins Returns, starring Emily Blunt as Mary Poppins.

For future reference

Re: Lion King

Obviously Disney knows their audience with those movies. The parents of the kids they target were kids during those original release so obviously they'll take their kid to see them.

That's what I thought immediately after reading they wanted in. They would be perfect as the hyenas.

Re: Lion King

The Jackman as Scar rumor is apparently not true, according to his spokesperson.

At the very least, it has not been confirmed by anyone from the studio.

Forget that. Add some Owls to Lion King so they can do their "WHO?WHO?WHO?WHO?" bit lol.

Just because they express interest doesn't mean they'll be in it at all. Speaking of WWE stars wanting to be in movies, remember when everyone said HHH should've played Thor? How perfect would that have been?
