For several months rumors have swirled that Jon Favreau’s remake of Lion King would feature one of the biggest stars on the planet, Beyoncé, and now we know that’s true. The Queen B took to her Facebook to not only announce her own involvement, but the rest of the cast too.
Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter is known for many fabulous talents, but acting isn’t exactly one of them. Nevertheless, that didn’t stop director Bill Condon from trying to cast the cultural icon in his live-action Beauty and the Beast film. Spoiler: Beyoncé said no.

With The Lion King getting its own live-action adaptation, Disney is capitalizing on renewed interest in one of its beloved classics with a new “Signature Collection” re-release—one that includes never-before-seen footage from the recording booth for the film, and it’s honestly as delightful as it is hammy. It’s so…
One of the funniest bit’s in Pixar’s Inside Out is when Joy and Sadness end up at Dream Production Studios, where Riley’s dreams are made like a movie studio. The studio has a ton of posters on its walls from Riley’s most popular dreams, and now you can own one.
We all knew Star Wars: Episode IX would be coming out in 2019, but everyone assumed it would be Christmas, following in the steps of the previous two films in the trilogy. Turns out that will not be the case. Oh, and the fifth Indiana Jones movie just got a new date, too. As well as Frozen 2. And the live-action Lion…
It’s good to be Donald Glover. Coming off multiple awards for his show Atlanta, he’s about to play Lando in the Han Solo movie and now he’s joining another major Disney production. Jon Favreau just cast him as Simba in the live-action version of The Lion King.

Disney’s putting a “reimagining” of The Lion King in the hands of Jon Favreau, following his version of The Jungle Book raking in piles and piles of money. This trend of Disney remaking its own hits forever and ever is great. A live-action Frozen movie has to be coming soon, right?
So far for Senior Week, we’ve already well established that I’m a freak. Cold Han Solo, waiting in lines for hours, but this is where I go over the edge. The fact that, as a compulsive poster collector, I have more posters in my flat file than I have on my walls. So I figured it was time to give some of those posters…
Video editor Ryan Shukis has re-edited a bunch of Disney movies to create the trailers that would market Disney animated films to grown-ups. His latest is The Lion King, which takes on a much more heartwarming tone than in the original trailer.
Sure, the heroes in Disney movies are supposed to embody desirable traits: bravery, kindness, a sense of adventure. But sometimes, it’s the villains who have the most to teach us about the world — in their successes and their failures, too.
If you don't count Pixar movies (and I don't), the best Disney movie as far as I'm concerned is The Lion King. It's not even close. But even though I've seen it so many times, there are many more fun facts that I had no idea about: like how Mufasa's roar was made from a bear, a tiger and a F-16. Here's more.
"The Madness of King Scar" is a song that was based on a scene cut from the original Lion King movie that ultimately made it into the stage musical. One animator took the disturbing Scar and Nala portion of the song and imagined how it might have looked in the animated movie.
Classic movies have been remade with nothing but stock footage thanks to this video from stock footage company Dissolve. Each "movie" is introduced with a hint, but not the actual title for guessing purposes. I don't want to brag but *pulls imaginary suspenders* I got them all.
Sure, we watch Disney villains commit some terrible atrocities over the course of their films, but we tend to be a bit more forgiving when we remember the dead. These obituaries recall the lives of villains from a more sympathetic perspective.
All was quiet on the arid plains of Africa when, suddenly, hundreds of animals rushed out of hiding and in a lumbering stampede ran towards Pride Rock, the highest point on the Serengeti.
Almost 20 years after The Lion King pounced into our hearts as a tear-jerking classic, Disney is bringing the pride back in an...interesting way. A new animated series aimed at preschoolers, Lion Guard, will air on Disney Junior and the Disney Channel starting November 2015. It will feature Kion, Simba's son,…
We're fans of Honest Trailers because they cut through all the bullshit from every Hollywood blockbuster there is. No movie is untouchable—including The Lion King. Like so many (all?) of Disney movies, it is so full of wrong. Their versions of the movie songs are especially hilarious. Enjoy!
