The Lion King

The mood at Pride Rock has been set, and it’s nothing less than fierce. Disney released new photos of The Lion King cast in front of a simple black background as they stare down their computer-animated characters.

It’s Beyoncé versus Nala. Donald Glover versus Simba. Seth Rogan, Billy Eichner and John Oliver versus Pumbaa, Timon and Zazu.

Basically, everyone brought their A-game for this photo shoot. And fans are swooning over these looks, especially Beyoncé’s die-hard fan base, most commonly known as the Bey Hive. The original The Lion King was animated and released in 1994.Directed by Jon Favreau, the new live-action movie also stars James Earl Jones, Keegan Michael-Key, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Eric André, Alfred Woodard and John Kani. The Lion King hits theatres July 19.
