I'm more excited that James Earl Jones is going to be Mufasa again.

I think you take my previous response, and safely assume that's a no.

That is some interesting casting... those 2 voices are very unique to say the least.

I read a great casting idea online for the 3 hyenas. Key, Pelle, and Chappelle. Have Chappelle be the smart one

Uhhh....pretty sure he is a hornbill, not a parrot.

And that sounds funny to me.

I don't know what characters Azizi, Shenzi, and Kamari are. Are those the hyenas?

The new Lion King movie is NOT "live action"
Live action films by definition have to have a person or animal or something living present somewhere in the film. Meanwhile, this film will be 100% CGI. The only thing that made Jon Favreau's Jungle Book movie "live action" was the one real kid in the movie amongst all the CGI characters and sets.
In conclusion: This new movie will be a "3D-animation Lion King," not a "live action Lion King." This is as much a live action movie as Shrek. #nitpicking #staywoke

But I'm assuming it will be the more "realistic" CGI like Jungle Book rather than the cartoonish CGI like Shrek.
