Images were circulating, sharing the “to be” cast, but we’ve got confirmation from Beyonce!

The cast for ‘The Lion King’ reboot is here, and boy is it good.

Some of the highlights are, of course, the Queen Bey as Nala, Donald Glover (AKA Childish Gambino) as Simba, James Earl Jones is reprising Mufasa, John Oliver is Zazu, and the honor of Timon and Pumba goes to Seth Rogen and Billy Eichner.

I have only one complaint. ONLY ONE! How come they didn’t ask Whoopi Goldberg to reprise her role? I can’t imagine her character being played by anyone else.
