STOP THE PRESSES, HOLD THE FORT AND CALM YOUR FARMS, THIS IS NOT A DRILL.
Yes, all of your childhood dreams are coming crashing in on you at once. The Lion King is officially coming back with a modern revamp curtesy of Disney. The modern interpretation is set to storm into the box office with huge hype, as you could expect, is already building around the release. 15 years after the 1994 release of the original, the feeling still remains regarding the classic animated film. I'd imagine that the average age in the cinema will be about 30, rather then the 10 year old's it's aimed at.
With an absolutely star studded cast including Donald Glover as Simba, Beyoncé as Nala, Chiwetel Ejiofor will play Scar, Seth Rogen as Pumbaa and Billy Eichner as Timon.
