NEWS FLASH: Meet The (Nearly) Full Cast For Disney’s The Lion King Reboot

(Nearly) all of the major cast of Disney’s upcoming live-action The Lion King reboot have been announced. Check out who will be bringing the classic characters to life here…


Simba – Donald Glover

Donald Glover has had a busy year – he’s just starred in Spider-Man: Homecoming and will next be seen in the Han Solo Star Wars prequel – but we bet he can’t wait to be king when he voices the adult Simba.


Mufasa – James Earl Jones

It looks like director Jon Favreau broke his rule to cast fresh actors when it came to finding the right person to play Simba’s father Mufasa – only Darth Vader himself James Earl Jones, who voiced the part in the animated classic, can do the character justice.


Zazu – John Oliver

Just like British comedian Rowan Atkinson voiced the part of Mufasa’s majordomo Zazu in the original, another British comedian – John Oliver – is taking on the role this time.


Sarabi – Alfre Woodard

Recently seen in the likes of Captain America: Civil War, Luke Cage and A Series of Unfortunate Events, Alfre Woodard will be joining the cast of The Lion King as Simba’s mother Sarabi.
