'The Lion King' fans ridicule "Hakuna Matata" remake ahead of release

'The Lion King' fans ridicule

Donald Grover lends his voice as Simba who prepares his entire life to meet up with his destiny.

Young Simba, voiced by JD McCrary, Timon, voiced by Billy Eichner, and Pumbaa, voiced by Seth Rogen, in a scene from The Lion King. You can listen to it below, with the song starting around the 6:30 mark. While fans of the Disney original that released in 1994 were unhappy with the remake but it looks like Favreau and his team have pulled off the feat impeccably well. However, some people are huge fans of the recreation of the classic Disney song.

Say what you will about Disney's ongoing fracking of their back catalogue: as a business decision, it makes a lot of sense.

Last month, we got a taste of Beyoncé, who plays Nala, and Donald Glover/Childish Gambino, who plays Simba, singing "Can You Feel the Love Tonight".


The Lion King: The Gift, will feature new recordings by Beyonce, and features "a attractive, multi-genre symphony, steeped in African influences from various corners of the continent, with unexpected collaborations, pulsating rhythms and crisp production that celebrate the African diaspora".

While Jay-Z was there to support his wife - and Destiny's Child members Michelle Williams and Kelly Rowland also attended - Beyoncé brought Blue Ivy as her date. The one absent track, No. 14, is listed as TBA. "There's nary a surprise in the whole two hours", wrote Todd McCarthy for The Hollywood Reporter. You can see the post below.

Danny Glover's son, Legend, is just like the rest of us-counting down until June 19th when the live-action remake of The Lion King is in theaters worldwide.

Hans Zimmer: "Simba Is Alive!" There is only one voice actor that has not changed in the 2019 live-action remake, and that is James Earl Jones as Mufasa. The cast also includes Keegan-Michael Key as Kamari, John Kani as Rafiki, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Scar and more.
