“Oh, I just can’t wait to be king!”


Back in late 2016, it was announced that Disney is indeed moving forward with a “live action” adaptation of the animated classic The Lion King. And after the success of The Jungle Book, Disney decided to team up once again wth director Jon Favreau for The Lion King.

Earlier today, Favreau posted these casting announcements on Twitter.

It’s certainly very soothing to know that Jones is reprising his role as Mufasa.

He sure has been reprising some roles lately, huh?
