I’ve shared some of the advance stuff for Disney’s live-action rendition of their classic “The Lion King” with the Official Trailer and some posters which you can enjoy by clicking the highlighted text. Now the day has come and its time to head into the deepest jungles and watch how this tale unfolds as the film opens in theaters everywhere. I’ve repeated the premise and casting below the poster.

The Premise: In the African savanna, the young lion Simba idolizes his father, Mufasa, and longs to succeed him as King of the Pridelands. Before this can happen, his jealous uncle Scar initiates a coup which results in Mufasa’s death and Simba’s exile. Simba grows up in the company of Timon and Pumbaa, a meerkat and warthog pair with a carefree lifestyle. As tensions rise, he is drawn back into a battle with Scar by the friends from his past life.

Voice Cast:
Donald Glover as Simba
JD McCrary as young Simba
Seth Rogen as Pumbaa
Chiwetel Ejiofor as Scar
Billy Eichner as Timon
John Oliver as Zazu
Keegan-Michael Key as Kamari
Beyoncé Knowles-Carter as Nala
Shahadi Wright Joseph as young Nala
James Earl Jones as Mufasa
John Kani as Rafiki
Florence Kasumba as Shenzi
Eric Andre as Azizi
Alfre Woodard as Sarabi

Piercing Ken Thoughts: Based on an overwhelming media itinerary its very doubtful that I get to see this one in the theaters. I did love the original animated “The Lion King” and have finally added it to my Disney Blu-ray collection but sitting down and enjoying this with so much else to attend to will be tough. What about you readers? Are you ready to get on the line with the younger generation in your family circle and watch the circle of life continue to go round? Chime in down below and I will see you next time.
