The Lion King Movie

"Disney has announced the full voice cast for its upcoming live-action The Lion King remake by simply tweeting a photo of the cast with the caption, "#TheLionKing. 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. Because, it turns out, the rumors are true: Beyoncé Knowles is joining the Disney remake in the role of Nala.

Ring the alarm! Queen Bey just dropped some seriously exciting news.

Beyonce posted a casting announcement on her Facebook page with the simple hashtag #TheLionKing 2019. JD McCrary and Shahadi Wright Joseph will play Young Simba and Nala. We're fuming too - it was already well known that Donald Glover, known for appearing in the likes of "Spider-Man: Homecoming" and "Community" was going to play Simba, and James Earl Jones was reprising his role of Mufasa.

How is the Lion King being remade? Why remake a ideal film?

With no human characters in the film, it isn't yet clear how, if it all, Disney will create a "live-action" update. While no exact date is set for like film besides "2019", we do know what the film will look very similar to what Disney's recent Jungle Book movie that had Bill Murray in the cast.
