Walt Disney Studios has released the complete cast of the upcoming Lion King film from Jungle Book director Jon Favreau.
Members of the cast that have already been reported on include Donald Glover as Simba, John Oliver as Zazu, Seth Rogen and Billy Eichner as Puumba and Timon and James Earl Jones returning as Mufasa. With this new photo from Disney, we see the rest of the all-star cast including confirmation of Beyonce taking on the role of Nala.
Favreau introduced some of the first footage this summer during Disney’s D23 celebration and the audience in attendance was blown away by the footage of a real African landscape populated with real animals overseeing the iconic moment when Rafiki (John Kani) introduces young Simba to the world.
The Lion King is expected to open in theaters July 19, 2019.
