EVERYONE, IT'S HAPPENING. IT'S REALLY HAPPENING.


Actual footage of me at the office rn.



After slowly ~teasing us~ with some of the actors involved throughout the past year, we now know the OFFICIAL CAST for Jon Favreau's The Lion King.



The adaptation of the 1994 animated classic will be in the same style as Favreau's previous hit reboot, The Jungle Book, as a live-action film.





While several of these actors were previously confirmed, the most exciting surprises are by far Beyoncé as Nala, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Scar, and Keegan-Michael Key as a hyena named Kamari.


So, in a similar vein to Simba's feelings about being king...I JUST CAN'T WAIT FOR JULY 19, 2019.
