The Lion King has stunning visuals, very realistic animated animal technique, and the same emotional story we love. And beyond, we have assembled an all-star voice cast for The Lion King.

We have Donald Glover's take on the lead role of adult Simba, Beyoncé voices adult Nala, Chiwetel Ejiofor voices Scar and he role of young Simba went to JD McCrary and so on.
