D23 2017: THE LION KING Footage Was Incredible!

Hugh Jackman Will Voice Scar In Disney's Live-Action Lion King

Simba is cute, fuzzy and blue-eyed in Disney's first look at 'The Lion King'

Our collective faith in Disney's live action take on their animated smash The Lion King was apparently rewarded at the studio's reveal-stuffed D23 Expo. Obviously, The Lion King will be using a lot of CGI and a lot of green screen, but with the help of VR the crew can get closer to the experience before it's been properly assembled.

Director Jon Favreau, who boasts the appropriate live action Jungle Book credentials, showcased the sneakiest of peeks of what's to come in front of assembled masses. The Wrap dug deep into the rumors, contacting Jackman's team where a representative of the actor shut down the claim without hesitation.

He can get that grizzled voice down pat and is distinct enough from Jeremy Irons' original - so it all makes sense.

And just like the Jungle Book, it all looks very, very real.

Sam Bird seals impressive NY double
Yesterday's runner-up Jean-Eric Vergne will start third for Techeetah as he aims to take his first Formula E win. Rosenqvist's teammate Nick Heidfeld tried to make a move but failed to do so.


Jackman certainly has the ferocity to play Scar, and will bring his many talents to the character.

Jackman joins a great cast, which features Donald Glover as Simba, Billy Eichner as Timon, Seth Rogan as Pumba and John Oliver as Zazu. James Earl Jones will also return to voice Mufasa.

Hugh Jackman might be done playing Wolverine, with the X-Man taking his last stand in this year's Logan.

The Lion King, with or without Jackman, will debut on July 19, 2019. The 1992 flick is also getting it's own live-action remake and Will Smith has been cast as the Genie.
