The Lion King is the next up and coming Disney live-action to hit our screens, and though it won't be here until 2019, Disney have already revealed exactly who is on board to voice act in the production. 


One of the most exciting revelations is that Queen Bey herself is on hand to star in the flick.


Beyoncé has been confirmed to play Nala, while the wonderful Donald Glover (known as Childish Gambino to many) will voice Simba.



As we reported a number of months ago, actors and comedians Seth Rogen and Billy Eichn have been enlisted to play iconic double act Timon and Pumbaa.


James Earl Jones, who originally voiced Mufasa in the 1994 classic, will return to take on the role once again. 


Chiwetel Ejiofo is stepping up to the role of Scar (slow clap for this casting choice). 



The film is due for release in July 2019. 


We're already ridiculously excited
