Lion King Live Action is coming and we love the cast

In 1994, Disney Channel dropped a classic on us.

Lion King, to this day, is considered one of the best Disney movies. In fact, The Top Ten has The Lion King first on their list of best Disney movies, and it is the highest-grossing Disney movie.  It’s about a cub growing into a man in Africa and trying to relive his father’s name and kingdom. From the surface, Simba is being betrayed by his uncle, Scar, but Timon and Pumbaa slide in. They teach us Hakuna Matata, to not worry. Other characters push Simba to let go of the past and handle push through for now. For years classic Disney movies have been remade. Alice in Wonderland, Beauty and the Beast, Snow White, the Jungle Book and more. Over two decades later and Walt Disney has us shook again and are producing a live-action Lion King. Dropping in 2019, The cast for The Lion King is in full effect and we are loving the announcements of black actors.
