The Lion King is certainly a Disney classic. The 1994 animated film was definitely one of the staples of the 90’s. Kids and adults alike fell in love with the story of Simba and his lion family.


Being one of the “highest grossing animated films of all time”, The Lion King will forever be remembered for generations to come. Disney is making sure this holds true too.


The Lion King will be coming back and the confirmed cast members are pretty amazing. Donald Glover will be playing Simba, Beyonce will play Nala, James Earl Jones as Mufasa, Chiwetel Ejlofor as Scar, and Alfre Woodard as Sarabi, just to name a few.


This live-action version of The Lion King just may be one for the books. We aren’t expecting it to ever be better than the original, but with this cast, we can at least count on it being very entertaining.


The Lion King is set to hit theaters summer of 2019.
