BIG Stars Have Signed On For The New Lion King Movie

We’re already super excited for the upcoming Lion King remake, and while the movie alone is enough for us, there’s some even better news. 

Some huge Hollywood names are set to appear in the 1994 film’s live action remake. 

Actor and filmmaker Jon Favreau revealed yesterday that Donald Glover (A.K.A. Childish Gambino) will play the main character Simba and James Earl Jones will reprise his role as the powerful Mufasa.

Aside from being a successful rapper, Glover also currently stars in his own series Atlanta, and was also recently announced as Lando Calrissian in the upcoming Han Solo movie.

Favreau also directed The Jungle Book’s critically acclaimed live-action version last year, and it was a huge success grossing more than $A1 billion at the box office. 

And if the success of the film’s first release 23-years ago is anything to go by; the remake could be a huge hit. The original film received two Academy Awards and peaked ar the second-highest grossing film of all time.

We can’t wait!!!
