This will be Jon Favreau's second live action Disney movie based on a Disney animated movie after directing 'Jungle Book' (2016). Both Donald Glover and James Earl Jones have worked on Star Wars movies, though on separate occasions. James Earl Jones provides the voice of Darth Vader in the Star Wars films that he appeared in, and Donald Glover is set to appear as Lando Calrissian in the Untitled Han Solo Star Wars Anthology Film (2018). First remake of a Disney animated feature film where a voice actor from the original reprises their role, with James Earl Jones giving his voice to Mufasa one more time.
