Disney releases a new clip for The Lion King, putting Timon and Pumbaa at the forefront. Voiced by Billy Eichner and Seth Rogen respectively, the meerkat and warthog duo is pivotal in helping Simba cope through the tragic death of his dad Mufasa. Given this, many are looking forward to how director Jon Favreau's retelling of the classic narrative handles the popular characters.
Eichner and Rogen join a star-studded voice cast for The Lion King. Donald Glover provides the voice of Simba, John Oliver is Zazu, Chiwetel Ejiofor plays Scar, and John Kani voices Rafiki. Meanwhile, the legendary James Earl Jones reprises his role as Mufasa, while Beyonce Knowles-Carter will bring Nala to life. The contemporary remake of the beloved 1994 Disney classic will run 118 minutes - that's 29 minutes longer than the animated version. This backs up claims that it won't be a shot-for-shot remake. With that in mind, fans are excited to learn what the additional material will consist of.
