It's official: Disney confirmed the full cast its 'The Lion King' remake on Wednesday (Nov. 1) and it's jam-packed with stars like Beyonce, Donald Glover and John Oliver. Let's take a look at how the 2019 live-action cast stacks up to the original voice actors from the 1994 classic film.
Donald Glover & Matthew Broderick
Donald Glover has some big paws to fill following Matthew Broderick's 1994 turn as Simba in the original animated movie.
Beyonce & Moira Kelly
Moira Kelly brought Nala to life in 1994, but Beyonce won't have a hard time becoming the Lion Queen.
Shahadi Wright Joseph & Niketa Calame
Shahadi Wright Joseph will play Young Nala, who was first voiced by Niketa Calame.
James Earl Jones
Who else could play Mufasa besides James Earl Jones? No one. That's why the veteran actor will be reprising the role in the live-action remake.
Alfre Woodard & Madge Sinclair
Alfre Woodard will take on the role of Sarabi -- the original actress, Madge Sinclair, passed away a year after the animated film's release.
Chiwetel Ejiofor & Jeremy Irons
Jeremy Irons made fans quiver with fear as the original Scar -- and now the villain is coming back thanks to Chiwetel Ejiofor.
John Kani & Robert Guillaume
Originally voiced by Robert Guillaume, John Kani will take over the role of Rafiki.
Seth Rogan & Ernie Sabella
Everyone knows Seth Rogan's a gas, which makes him a good fit for the flatulent warthog, Pumbaa, who was originally voiced by Ernie Sabella.
Billy Eichner & Nathan Lane
We never figured out what's the motto with Timon, but we can be sure wisecracking Billy Eichner can match up to the fast-talking Nathan Lane.
John Oliver & Rowan Atkinson
John Oliver's dry comedy will surely add a new dimension to Rowan Atkinson's original portrayal of Zazu.
Florence Kasumba & Whoopi Goldberg
Florence Kasumba is taking on the role of sassy hyena leader, Shenzi, who was originally voiced by Whoopi Goldberg.
