Talk about timing. While you and the family were enjoying your Thanksgiving gathering (and most definitely not the Lions) on Thursday, the folks at Disney just knew you'd be scouring the internet looking for something (anything) while you were waiting for dinner. Timing is everything right? They've been talking FOREVER about this "live action" version of The Lion King. And we've been hearing names like Beyonce, James Earl Jones, and more thrown around for a while now. Even a new song from Elton John and Beyonce.
Thursday, Disney dropped us this little nugget. And as of Saturday afternoon, it's been viewed over 27 MILLION times.
We get stunning visuals, James Earl Jones on the voiceover, epic lines from the movie ("Everything the light touches..."), Simba, Rafiki, and a peek at the cast (well the names anyway).
Get ready for Donald Glover, Seth Rogen, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Billy Eichner, John Oliver, Keegan-Michael Key, Beyonce, & James Earl Jones. Trying to guess who's gonna be Timon and Pumbaa and Scar. And I guess it could easily be looked up. But i truly want to be surprised and enjoy the ride.
