News erupted last week about the new casting for the new live action of the “Lion King”. Since the success of the “Jungle Book”, which was almost entirely made of animals in the 1960’s cartoon version, it seemed fitting that the Disney Studios would use one of their most celebrated films.
The “Lion King” still has yet to say when they will filming and/or release date, so when looking to the newest news that has arrived in the Disney Studios about two of the biggest characters in the movie, the world got excited!
Reprising his role as Mufasa, James Earl Jones has been cast and Donald Glover, coming off of the Star Wars Han Solo prequel, will be playing Simba.
As a lover of this movie, being one of my favorites as a kid, I am excited to see what they do with this movie and the music to brought along with it. With the news comes the hope that we will be able to get this movie soon!
