Can't wait to see the 'King'?
Before The Lion King rules over theaters this July 19, we finally get a closer look at all the main characters in their CGI forms, facing their voice actors in the released cast portraits.
Here are the photos:
This Disney classic film remake recreates beloved characters into their photorealistic versions. These include like Simba, Mufasa, Nala, Sarabi, Timon, Pumbaa, and more! Besides this, we also get a new and star-studded roster of voice actors like Beyonce Knowles, Donald Glover, Alfre Woodhard, and Chiwetel Ejiofor to name a few, while James Earl Jones will reprise his role as Mufasa.
The film follows the story of Simba, a young lion cub who aspires to follow the steps of his father Mufasa as the ruler of Pride Rock. But Simba would have to realize that being King is not all about glory after the tragic events plotted by his vicious uncle Scar.
The Lion King is directed by Jon Favreau (The Jungle Book, Iron Man), and produced it with Jeffrey Silver (Beauty and the Beast, Edge of Tomorrow) and Karen Gilchrist (The Jungle Book, Chef).
