Disney’s live-action reboot of Aladdin may have just debuted in theaters last weekend but the Mouse House is wasting no time in ramping up what could be their biggest hit yet with an all-new computer animated update of one of their top grossing animated films of all time, The Lion King.
Staying true to the classic story, director Jon Favreau (The Jungle Book) utilizes pioneering filmmaking techniques to bring the iconic characters to the big screen in a whole new way. Featuring the voices of 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, and more. The film is produced by Favreau, Jeffrey Silver, Karen Gilchrist and written by Jeff Nathanson.
