After the resounding success of the musical fairy tale "Beauty and the Beast", which no one has yet been able to dislodge from the top of the list of highest grossing releases in 2017, Disney studio is ready to turn almost every famous cartoon into a feature film with a stellar cast. Last year, House of Mouse and director Jon Favreau had a very fruitful work on The Jungle Book, and now the director is preparing a remake of The Lion King for the major.|
Disney has officially announced the full cast and presented an updated synopsis of the future tape. As with The Jungle Book, the animals in the film will be created using CGI technology. The central character Simba will be voiced by Donald Glover (Atlanta). Seth Rogen (Neighbors. On the Warpath) and Billy Eikner (American Horror Story) will sing Hakuna Matata as Pumbaa and Timon. The main villain Scar will speak in the voice of Chiwetel Ejiofor (Doctor Strange), and three hyenas will help him, whose roles went to Eric Andre (Don't Believe the Su *** from Apartment 23), Florence Kasumba (The Emerald City) and Keegan -Michael Key (Keanu). James Earl Jones, who voiced Mufasa, will return from the original cast in the new version, and John Oliver ("The Community") will turn into his assistant, the rhinoceros Zazu.
However, the most interesting thing in the press release is that the voice and singing talent of Nala, Simba's childhood friend and lover, will be presented to Beyonce Knowles (Dreamgirls). Earlier, there were rumors that the pop star would record the soundtrack for The Lion King. It is also noteworthy that the music for the remake will be created by the composer Hans Zimmer, who won the Oscar for the original.
According to the synopsis, the new "Lion King" will take viewers to the African savannah, where the future king was born. Simba considers his father Mufasa an ideal and takes seriously the destiny of the ruler destined for him. However, not everyone in the kingdom is happy with the appearance of the heir to the throne. Scar, Mufasa's brother, has plans of his own. The battle for Pride Lands, full of betrayal, tragedy and drama, leads to the expulsion of Simba, and now he must find a way not only to survive, but also to return what is rightfully his.
The premiere of the remake is scheduled for July 18, 2019.
