In the jungle, the mighty jungle, Pumbaa and Timon enjoy fresh, locally sourced, extra crunchy insects, as seen in a new TV spot for Disney's remake of "The Lion King."
Both Seth Rogen (who voices warthog Pumbaa) and Billy Eichner (meerkat Timon) posted the clip to social media. It provides the most extended footage of the two characters so far.
