DIRECTOR Jon Favreau
VOICES Donald Glover, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter, Chiwetel Ejiofor, James Earl Jones

Donald Glover and Beyoncé Knowles voice Simba and Nala in Disney’s live-action remake of the much-loved animation about a young lion prince who must find his role.

Disney’s all-new, live-action remake journeys to the African savanna where a future king is born. After the murder of his father, the young lion prince flees his kingdom only to learn the true meaning of responsibility and bravery. With a fantastic voice cast, anticipation is very high for this spectacular new film.
(2019 USA 118 mins)

The Lion King uses nostalgia as a springboard for experimentation, finding new ways to tell old stories… The new voice cast is […] stellar, with the film’s younger stars (McCrary and Shahadi Wright Joseph as Simba and Nala) making a strong impression, even in the face of their starry adult counterparts, Donald Glover and Knowles-Carter. Although it’s hard to listen to an adult Nala and think of anything other than the global icon who voices her, the film moulds the character in a way that feels at home with Beyoncé’s persona – strong to a fault and with a voice that sounds like it’s descended from the heavens. That said, the film’s real highlight is Billy Eichner and Seth Rogen and their take on Timon and Pumbaa.  Clarisse Loughrey, The Independent
