Something old, something new. Couldn’t ask for a better two.
James Earl Jones and Donald Glover
Jones, of course, played the role of Mufasa in Disney’s original animated version, while Glover is the hottest It Guy of the moment. He will soon be seen in this summer’s Spider-Man: Homecoming as well as next year’s Young Han Solo Movie (playing Young Lando). Glover is also the hip-hop artist Childish Gambino, and creator/star of FX’s buzzed-about TV series Atlanta.
Disney has yet to announce a release date for live action remake.
