'Lion King' live-action cast revealed, including Beyoncé as Nala

'The Lion King': Disney Announces Full Live-Action Cast; New Synopsis Revealed

Beyonce is to star in a remake of Disney's "The Lion King", directed by Jon Favreau.

Who is in the cast of The Lion King?

The new cast will join Donald Glover (Solo: A Star Wars Story) as future lion king Simba in the adaptation.

Look, we know the movie's called The Lion King, but is it too late to relabel it The Lion Queen?


Now, after a lot of speculation that she was going to make an appearance in the picture (or at least help produce the soundtrack), it was confirmed that Beyoncé was going to portray Nala.

Both Bey and Donald will be starring alongside Chiwetel Ejiofor as the movie's evil villian, Scar, Alfre Woodard as Simba's mom, Sarabi, and James Earl Jones will be reprising his role as Simba's father, Mufasa. With me and Seth Rogen as Timon and Pumba! JD McCrary and Shahadi Wright Joseph will play Young Simba and Nala.

How is the Lion King being remade? Beyonce and the other actors will only be lending their voice to this live action remake, which will be using computer-generated animals similar to the live-action remake of The Jungle Book.

An official synopsis teased that the remake will "utilise pioneering filmmaking techniques to bring treasured characters to life in a whole new way".
