    Is this Disney capitalizing on the upcoming assumed success of Black Panther?
    Or would they have done this anyway?

    [edit] oh, I just read it's going to be CG and not live action, which partly invalidates my question. I assumed it was gonna be something like the Lion King Broadway show (which is phenomenal) but this...eh, wonder if it will be any good. I did enjoy the recent Beauty and the Beast movie though >_>

    I think it's going to be similar to The Jungle Book (Also directed by Favreau) (also really really good).

    On one hand I adore the original voice actors of The Lion King and never want to see them replaced. On the other hand this new cast is gonna be lit.

    That Zazu casting is incredible. I can hear it when I close my eyes.

    This and no Nathan Lane makes me sad.

    But now I'm trying to imagine Seth Rogen and Billy Eichner singing Hakuna Matata.

    Billy Eichner as Timon will be interesting. I can easily see Seth Rogan as Pumba (or the rest of the cast for their respective roles really), but Eichner's style especially compared to Nathan Lane is just so... different. He's just so shouty compared to Lane's sarcastic, constantly talking style lol. Gonna be a different take on the character for sure

    Cause Timon and Pumba aren’t stoners?

    Ones a easy going gluten (Rogan easily) and the other is a overthinking sarcastic non-stop talker (not Franco at all)

    He should've been Bobcat Goldthwait. Not that he perfectly fits the sarcastic type, just want to hear his classic crazy voice in this.

    Even in his more toned-down sound recently his voice is still iconic.

    Bobcat's scratchy tone actually kind of reminds me of Pumba's original VA
