I basically choked on my Spaghettios when I saw this announcement.
Disney just confirmed the full cast for their 2019 live action re-imaging of The Lion King -- and it is freaking epic.
Beyonce has been confirmed as Nala, Atlanta's Donald Glover will portray Simba, and James Earl Jones will reprise his role from the animated film as Mufasa. [AND SETH ROGEN IS PUMBAA, LOL!]
The Lion King will hit theaters July 19, 2019.
What do you think, fam?!
