The rundown on the remake, everything we know so far.

The movie is releasing July 19th 2019 I assume in North America and various other territories. Some will get to see it later.

The director is Jon Favreau who directed The Jungle Book remake and Iron Man 1 among other movies.

The voice cast we know of so far.

Aside from the logo, there has been no media officially released to the public. All those posters and trailers you see are fan made.

No, that animatronic Mufasa isn’t from the remake.

And no, Simba isn’t gay. That was an april fools joke from last year.

In an interview Elton John left out Be Prepared from the remake song list. Whether this was intentional or not, is unknown.

Hans Zimmer is back on the score, it is unknown if Lebo M is returning.

It is unknown if this is a 1:1 remake, if they will sprinkle new scenes here and there or if it will take the story in a brand new direction.


Anything you would add?
Why do we fall? So that we can learn to pick ourselves back up again.

There will be an end-credits song sung by Beyonce that will be written by Tim Rice and Elton John.

Questlove (and The Roots?) is reportedly collaborating with Hans Zimmer on the score.

Edit: Most recent reporting on the story indicates that Questlove at least has gotten signed on. (https://blog.wenn.com/all-news/sir-elto ... ing-theme/) Back in fall of last year when the cast photo came out he'd tweeted his interest in joining the project, so I'm thinking there's something going on. It would be cool to see if/how they rework the music.
