Did You Miss It? Donald Glover To Star In ‘Lion King’ Remake

Published: Sunday 19th Feb 2017 by David

Donald Glover and James Earl Jones are to portray Simba and Mufasa in a live action remake of Disney’s ‘The Lion King’.

Good news below…

A release date for the movie is yet to be announced, but fans of the original animation will be pleased to discover that Glover, the creative behind the hit show ‘Atlanta’, has bagged the role of Simba and will play alongside Jones who will portray his kind yet stoic father Mufasa.


Jon Favreau has taken on directorial duties and is tasked with turning the project into a roaring success for Disney following the release of the well-received yet lesser-known ‘Lion King 2′.

    All these live action versions of the animated classics are making money at the box office but nothing else. Zero impact. Even the upcoming Beauty and the Beast, which is the most anticipated to date among all of them, is already feeling uninspired and forgettable, starting with that new version of the song that is not leaving any mark whatsoever.

      That’s because Emma Watson can’t act.
