Plot

'The Lion King', The new Disney Live Action film, directed by Jon Favreau, travels to the African savannah where the future king was born. Simba idolizes his father, King Mufasa, and takes his own destiny very seriously. But in the kingdom not everyone celebrates the arrival of the Simba. Scar, Mufasa's brother and former heir to the throne, has his own plans. The battle for Pride Rock is ravaged by betrayal and tragedy, with Simba being forced into exile. With the help of a curious pair of new friends, Simba will have to learn to mature and recover what belongs to him by right. 'The Lion King' uses pioneering film techniques to bring the characters of the 1994 classic to life in a completely new way, and features the main voices of Donald Glover as Simba, Beyoncé as Nala and James Earl Jones, who repeats his role as original film as Mufasa. Chiwetel Ejiofor gives his voice to Scar, the evil uncle of Simba and Alfre Woodard is the voice of Sarabi, the mother of Simba. In addition, Seth Rogen will show his comic talent as the wild boar Pumbaa, and Billy Eichner plays his inseparable friend, the know-it-all meerkat Timon. Hide full plot... Show full plot

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.
