The Lion King Live Action Movie Release Date, Cast And News

Image: Disney
Everything we know so far about Disney's 2019 The Lion King remake, including when it's coming out, who's in it and the latest news.

Following on from the success of the 2016 live action adaptation of The Jungle Book and 2017’s Beauty and the Beast, a visually similar remake of The Lion King is set to be released next year. Here, we bring you everything we know so far about The Lion King 2019, including its release date, cast and the latest news.

Although we’ve called both The Jungle Book and the upcoming The Lion King live action, the filmes are created mostly using photorealistic animation. This makes a huge amount more sense, because in The Lion King the cast is made up entirely of talking animals!

When is The Lion King live action movie coming out?
After being confirmed in September 2016, production of The Lion King began in the summer of 2017. It’s scheduled to come to cinemas on 19 July 2019 in the US and UK, which has actually been described as “fast-tracked” by Disney. The release date will be the 25th anniversary of the release of the original 1994 animated film.

The Lion King live action movie news
The Lion King has been directed by Jon Favreau, who you may recognise as Monica Geller’s boyfriend Pete in Friends among other acting appearances earlier in his career. This will be the ninth movie he’s directed, with previous directing successes including Elf, Iron Man and The Jungle Book.

It’s set to feature four songs from the original movie: Can You Feel The Love Tonight, Hakuna Matata, I Just Can’t Wait to Be King and Circle of Life. Hans Zimmer, who scored the original The Lion King movie, has returned to score the remake, with Beyonce (who is playing Nala, but more on this later) and Tim Rice assisting with the new soundtrack.

Disney has announced that The Lion King, as well as Frozen 2 and Toy Story 4, will be among the first films to make their way onto the an upcoming Disney streaming service. DisneyLife is already available in the UK but will soon make its way to the US on a bigger scale with some exclusive TV shows to entice new subscribers. 

The Lion King live action movie cast
Starring in The Lion King is a pretty impressive cast of actors.

Donald Glover (aka Childish Gambino), who has previously starred in Solo: A Star Wars Story and Spider-Man: Homecoming, has been cast as Simba.

Starring alongside him is Beyonce, taking the role of Nala.

Mufasa is played by James Earl Jones, the same actor that played Mufasa in the 1994 animated version of The Lion King.

Chiwetel Ejiofor plays Scar, Billy Eichner is Timon and Seth Rogan is Pumbaa. Meanwhile Sarabi (Simba’s mum) is played by Alfre Woodard, Rafiki is played by John Kani and Zazu is played by John Oliver.

There are no images or trailers available for The Lion King 2019 yet, but we’ll be updating this article regularly with all of the latest news.

Also coming in 2019 are live action remakes of Aladdin and Dumbo.

Oppo RX17 Pro Review

Though similar to the OnePlus 6T the Oppo RX17 Pro is very different thanks to the software. Here’s our full review
Should I Buy The Oppo RX17 Pro?
The RX17 Pro is a great looking phone with good performance and a lush display. But with a Snapdragon 710 rather than the better 845 it’s just impossible not to compare it to the OnePlus 6T which looks the same, has better software for the western market and, importantly, costs less.
If you like the look of Oppo’s interface though then there’s a lot to like. The two colour options are premium as is the build quality and the cameras are above average if not great.

Should I Buy The Synology Mesh Router MR2200ac?
Synology could do a little more to explain the many features of the MR2200ac for first-time users, but the strong performance of this mesh system, and the fine-control provided by its web browser interface make it a good option for business users or home users who have a little more experience of networking technology.

Nokia 9 Release Date, Price & Spec Rumours

We've waited two years for the Nokia 9, and at the end of this month the company could finally put us out of our misery. Here's what we know about the Nokia 9 PureView, which could feature a penta-lens rear camera.
Nokia made its comeback to the Android market in January 2017 with the Nokia 6, and we've been waiting two years now for its long-rumoured flagship Nokia 9 to arrive. At MWC 2018 we thought that time was here, and then we got the the Nokia 8 Sirocco. But now the wait could really, really be over, as the Nokia 9 is tipped to land before the end of January 2019.
