Released Fri 19 Jul, 2019
Simba idolises his father, King Mufasa, and takes to heart his own royal destiny. But, not everyone in the kingdom celebrates the new cub’s arrival. Scar, Mufasas brother—and former heir to the throne—-has plans of his own. The battle for Pride Rock is ravaged with betrayal, tragedy and drama, ultimately resulting in Simba’s exile. With help from a curious pair of newfound friends, Simba will have to figure out how to grow up and take back what is rightfully his.
From Disney, director Jon Favreau's all-new ‘The Lion King’ journeys to the African savanna, where a future king is born. The all-star cast includes Donald Glover as Simba, Beyoncé Knowles as Nala, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Scar, James Earl Jones as Mufasa, Billy Eichner as Timon, and Seth Rogen as Pumbaa.
'The Lion King' features pioneering filmmaking techniques, welcoming back to the big screen iconic characters that audiences have long treasured—but in a whole new way.
