    Director Jon Favreau’s all-new “The Lion King” journeys to the African savanna where a future king is born. Simba idolizes his father, King Mufasa, and takes to heart his own royal destiny. But not everyone in the kingdom celebrates the new cub’s arrival. Scar, Mufasa’s brother—and former heir to the throne—has plans of his own. The battle for Pride Rock is ravaged with betrayal, tragedy and drama, ultimately resulting in Simba’s exile. With help from a curious pair of newfound friends, Simba will have to figure out how to grow up and take back what is rightfully his. The all-star cast includes 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. Utilizing pioneering filmmaking techniques to bring treasured characters to life in a whole new way, Disney’s “The Lion King” is in theatres Friday.

          Am I the only who thought they missed a golden opportunity by saying "to what, Fred?" Instead of "to what, Seth?"?

            Timon and Pumbaa was my fave! These actors were so perfect for the job! I especially like Billy. He is so darn good, timing and voice is so on point! Kudos to u casting director!

                I don't know, i really didn't know Donald Glover was that small...i mean this changes everything!....and nothing at the same time. Yet I feel like I don't know if I like this height on him or not

                              If by reinventing, you mean ruining it, then mission accomplished.
                              Note to Disney: Hire actual voice actors next time...And people who can actually sing.

Beyoncé is an Insult to Nala! One of My Favorites. They Should have had the Original cast. And It also Opens On My Birthday 😒
