Beyonce, Donald Glover, and 'The Lion King' Cast Face Their Characters in New Photos
Disney fans have already seen the impressive trailers, heard some of the soaring songs, and geeked out over the A-list cast of the upcoming live-action remake of "The Lion King." And now, audiences can ogle some gorgeous new character portraits from the film, featuring the stars alongside their onscreen animated alter egos.
The featured actors and their characters are: Beyoncé Knowles-Carter as Nala; Donald Glover as Simba; Seth Rogen, Billy Eichner, and John Oliver as Pumbaa, Timon, and Zazu; Alfre Woodard as Sarabi; Chiwetel Ejiofor as Scar; Keegan-Michael Key, Florence Kasumba, and Eric André as Kamari, Shenzi, and Azizi; and JD McCrary and Shahadi Wright Joseph as Young Simba and Young Nala. (Curiously, only James Earl Jones, who's reprising his role as Mufasa, is missing from the lineup.)
Favreau led off his post with the Beyoncé portrait, and it's not hard to see why: Queen Bey looks positively regal as the lioness; as her own self, she's even more resplendent.
"The Lion King" roars into theaters on July 19.
