The Lion King

Disney's big live-action remake of "The Lion King" is the most anticipated animation movie thanks to star-studded voiceovers by Beyonce, Donald Glover, Seth Rogan, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Billy Eichner, John Oliver, and the great James Earl Jones.

Live-action is a complete remake of formerly cartoon classics. Director Jon Favreau's all-new "The Lion King" journeys to the African jungle where a future king must overcome betrayal and tragedy to assume his rightful place on Pride Rock.

Two truths that children will take away from "The lion King" are the lion is still the undisputed king of the jungle and all God's creatures can get along without killing each other.

Disney's "The Lion King" opens in theaters on July 19, 2019.

    I hope they can make Beyonce's voiceover sound decent. I'm sure they paid her millions of dollars to lay down her rough country sounding, Ebonics. Sorry, but it's true.

  • PhillyFacts

    My 22 year old watched this movie over-and-over in elementary, he even named my mother cat Simba. I can’t wait to see it; maybe I’ll take him on a movie date if he can come up for air from his gf. lol

  • rockstar2142

  • Faux Gibbler

    I feel some kind of way about Disney them being a rich company and barely paying liveable wages.

  • hottlanta

    Betta leave my Lion King alone. Loved the cartoon and the live play. FAB, FAB, FAB, FAB, FAB.!!!!!

  • lilli lilian

    Not declined, she accepted then she quit. The jokes on the internet at that time were that she quit because Dicaprio and the newest Batman declined to work with her.

    Y'all be giving this girl way too much power, not all of humanity is checking for her or sees her as vital to their business, no one was rushing to work with her and get the movie done so she quit the movie, they even said Barbara Streisand declined to direct the remake.
    "I was looking forward to the production of 'A Star Is Born' and the opportunity to work with Clint Eastwood," the Grammy winner said in a statement to E! News. "For months we tried to coordinate our schedules to bring this remake to life but it was just not possible. Hopefully in the future we will get a chance to work together."

    Beyoncé Knowles has quit Clint Eastwood's forthcoming remake of A Star is Born for the second time, leaving the long-gestating project in turmoil, Variety reports.
    The singer and actor is believed to have walked away due to delays in announcing a start date for the film. Knowles has left the project over delays before, but came back on board when Eastwood was announced as director in January last year.

    She wanted this, it just didn't want her


    I only read the first sentence.

  • missmiami305

    Some ish should be left alone. This is one of them. ***yawn*** @ the trailer lol

  • Blue

    Is Madea in this?

  • Guess Who


  • SunSoy

    Lady GaGa is incredible in the film. I don't see Beyonce playing that part. Plus Clint Eastwood had trouble finding a male co-star that wanted to work with her.

  • SunSoy

    Beyonce missed out on a best actress oscar nomination.

  • Blue

    Hahaha. Just wondering.

  • SunRiseBlossom

    I will be in the movie theater with my food and napkins... I must have napkins for my tears!!! I going to walk out on the part when Mufasa is killed, but I shall return to see Timone and Pumba enter the scene... Lol!!!

  • grenadiadrian

    Ugh, leave my classics ALONE! Hollywood just all out of ideas and here they come to remake the GOAT Disney movie as a psuedo-live action/CGI version. Nah, can't do it. Done f**ked up my TMNT now they're coming after Lion King. Seth Rogen + Beyoncé = GTFOH!

  • SunSoy

    Beyonce grew up middle class and went to private school she is not hood or speak any ebonics.

  • Sydni
