MOVIE OF THE WEEK: ‘The Lion King’ hits local cinemas this week

Cast voices by John Kani, Donald Glover, Beyoncé, James Earl Jones & more.

Disney’s remake of 1994 classic ‘The Lion King’ will finally arrive in cinemas this week.

The Lion King is directed by Jon Favreau and produced by Walt Disney Pictures.

The cast of ‘The Lion King’ will feature a star-studded cast including Donald Glover, Beyoncé, John Kani, James Earl Jones returning as Mufasa, Seth Rogen and many more.

In this movie, Donald Glover portrays future king Simba, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter as Simba’s friend-turned-love interest Nala, and James Earl Jones as Simba’s wise and loving father, Mufasa, reprising his iconic performance from Disney’s 1994 animated classic.



Director Jon Favreau’s all-new “The Lion King” journeys to the African savanna where a future king is born. Simba idolizes his father, King Mufasa, and takes to heart his own royal destiny. But not everyone in the kingdom celebrates the new cub’s arrival. Scar, Mufasa’s brother—and former heir to the throne—has plans of his own. The battle for Pride Rock is ravaged with betrayal, tragedy and drama, ultimately resulting in Simba’s exile. With help from a curious pair of newfound friends, Simba will have to figure out how to grow up and take back what is rightfully his.

John Kani takes on as the wise baboon Rafiki, and John Oliver as hornbill Zazu, Mufasa’s loyal confidant.

The Lion King will debut in local cinemas on Friday, 17 July 2019.
