"Remember, who you are" Just the thought of that voice, still gives the chills and now we are on a one-way trip to Feels-ville with the return of the king.
Jon Faverau, the director for Disney's live remake of The Lion King has confirmed that James Earl Jones will reprise his role as Mufasa. Faverau is stoked, revealing that he can't wait to work with the legend. The Lion King released in 1994 and became an instant classic that still brings the feels today!
Not only does the king return but Hip Hop and RnB star Childish Gambino will be voicing Simba.
The upcoming Lion King is just another Disney film to be given the 'real-life treatment' following Beauty and the Beast and The Jungle Book, the latter which Faverau directed and received critical and commercial acclaim.
Oh we just can't wait for the next Lion King!
