In November last year, Disney tweeted the cast list for the film, which will feature the voices of Beyonce as Nala, Donald Glover as Simba and Chiwetel Ejiofor as Scar.If you’re a fan of the original then you’ll be pleased to know that James Earl Jones will still be the voice of Mufasa.

But this isn’t the only live-action Disney film coming in 2019 as Dumbo is set to release 29 March 2019 and Aladdin set to release in May 2019. But how do you feel about this remake and remakes in general?
