What childhood did not include The Lion King? The Lion King was released back in 1994 and has since become one of the world’s best animations and is adored by children and adults alike.


What we know so far

At the end of 2017, Beyonce and Chiwetel Ejiofor were announced and confirmed as the voices of Nala and Scar. Childish Gambino will have the honour of being the voice of Simba. The film will be released in June 2019 and we cannot wait. This version will be more realistic in animation in comparison to the original version.

Hans Zimmer – the genius behind the original score – will return for the remake. Sir Elton John also signed on to rework his musical compositions from the original film. The directors of The Jungle Book will also head this film project. And if The Jungle Book is anything to go by, we are sure to be impressed.
