Whether you are willing to admit it or not, everyone is a fan of the classic Disney movies and we have loved seeing Disney deciding to bring us some live-action adaptations of some of their classic tales. Over the course of the past few years, we have been given some fantastic live-action Disney movies, which have all gone on to make a good amount of money at the box office, as well as being enjoyable to watch.
We have seen the likes of Cinderella, The Jungle Book, and The BFG being released in recent years, while we have Beauty and the Beast coming to the big screen in 2017, as well as their being plans for a number of other classic Disney tales being adapted for the big screen. One such classic Disney movie, is the wonderful film The Lion King, which is going to be adapted into a live-action project by Jon Favreau, who did a great job with The Jungle Book.
At the moment, The Lion King live-action movie is still in the treatment stages, so there has not yet been any cast members being brought on board for the project as of yet. However, the fans of the original movie have been very vocal about who they would love to see voicing the characters in the new version, and there have definitely been some interesting names mentioned.
While some fans have stated that they would love to have the original voice cast back for The Lion King live-action movie, there are obviously other names being linked. Our favourites so far would have to be having John Legend as Simba, Paul Giamatti as Timon, and Zach Galifianakis as Pumbaa, how amazing would that be?
