Disney’s “The Lion King” Starts 50-Day Release Countdown With Character Posters 12

Character posters of the CGI The Lion King’s cast are available now, alongside a new TV spot, to mark the 50-day release wait.

Directed by Jon Favreau, who also directed the first two Iron Man films and the remake of The Jungle Book, this new film looks to adapt the Disney classic into a photorealistic live-action epic. It features an all-star voice cast, including Donald Glover as Simba, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter as Nala, James Earl Jones as Mufasa, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Scar, Seth Rogen as Pumbaa, and Billy Eichner as Timon.

The Lion King takes audiences to the African savanna where a future king is born. Simba idolizes his father, King Mufasa, and takes to heart his own royal destiny. But not everyone in the kingdom celebrates the new cub’s arrival. Scar, Mufasa’s brother – and former heir to the throne – has plans of his own. The battle for Pride Rock is ravaged with betrayal, tragedy and drama, ultimately resulting in Scar’s dominance and Simba’s exile. With some roundabout help from Timon and Pumbaa, Simba will have to learn how to grow up and take back what is rightfully his.
