The all-star actors consists of Donald Glover as Simba, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter as Nala, James Earl Jones as Mufasa, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Mark, Seth Rogen as Pumbaa as well as Billy Eichner as Timon. Using pioneering filmmaking techniques to bring valued characters to life in an entire new method, Disney's "The Lion King" roars into movie theaters on July 19, 2019.
