Hugh Jackman To Play Scar In The Lion King Remake

Favreau was also the genius behind the majorly successful The Jungle Book remake previous year. The footage was reportedly wonderful and faithfully recreated a scene from the original animated version of The Lion King. However, with the show set for release on July 19, 2019, the team still has a lot of work to do. Of course, there's also the fact that Jackman has the musical chops to make this work and his intensity and strong, commanding voice means that he's pretty much the flawless choice to play the villain. It's especially powerful when you see them running by a realistic shot of Mt. Kilimanjaro in the background.

If Jon Favreau is reading this I have one question for him.... will be get to see more of Rafiki kung fu kicking hyena ass in the live action movie?

American Airlines insists farty passenger wasn't cause of emergency
An updated statement from the airport referred to the incident a "medical call" after the planed deplaned "normally". RDU officials did not identify where the plane was from or its destination or what type of aircraft was involved.

"We know how important this is", said Favreau. It ended with the iconic moment in which Rafiki introduces an adorable young Simba on Pride Rock, as Elton Johns "Circle of Life" is played. The 1994 classic film was received very well and became one of the most-loved modern Disney movies. The film will be directed by Guy Ritchie and now has no release date. That seems to be a sign that the rest of the story will do the same in the style of Disney's Beauty and the Beast live action film, but the actual plot of the live action Lion King wasn't discussed on the panel.

The remake will feature Donald Glover as Simba, James Earl Jones reprising his role as Mufasa, Seth Rogen as Pumbaa, Billy Eichner as Timon, and John Oliver as Zazu. Additionally, get a look behind the scenes of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, plus watch the first trailer for Ava Duverney's A Wrinkle in Time.
