Chiwetel Ejiofor and Aflre Woodard join Lion King in major roles

August 10th, 2017 by Marc Comments

Jon Favreau’s live-action Lion King remake has scored two major names for the cast it seems.

So far the cast includes Donald Glover as Simba, James Earl Jones as his father Mufasa, Seth Rogen ad Billy Eichner as Timba and Simone and  John Oliver as Zazu but now it looks like it will also include Serenity star Chiwetel Ejiofor as the villain, Scar and Luke Cage’s Alfre Woodard as the voice of Sarabi, Simba’s mom.


Seth Rogen, Billy Eichner and John Oliver will also voice parts in the feature, which recently added Chiwetel Ejiofor to its roster to play the villain, Scar.

It looks like Disney are going full out to assemble a first class cast for this movie… we can’t wait to join the circle of life all over again.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
