The iconic Disney animated feature The Lion King is going to get a live-action version directed by John Favreau. Donald Glover has voiced the primary character Simba, and Seth Rogen is casted as Pumbaa in a dream casting. James Earl Jones voices the father of Simba, Mufasa. John Oliver is the hornbill Zazu, Wolverine star Hugh Jackman is the villain, Scar.
