Tickets Go on Sale for Disney’s The Lion King

You can now officially start purchasing tickets for Disney’s The Lion King. The film hits theaters on July 19. You can check out a tweet from Disney below with a few clips from the film.

Director Jon Favreau’s all-new The Lion King journeys to the African savanna where a future king must overcome betrayal and tragedy to assume his rightful place on Pride Rock.

The cast also includes Donald Glover (AtlantaSolo: A Star Wars Story) as future king Simba and James Earl Jones (Rogue One: A Star Wars StoryField of Dreams) as Simba’s wise and loving father, Mufasa, reprising his iconic performance from Disney’s 1994 animated classic.

Chiwetel Ejiofor (Twelve Years a SlaveDoctor Strange) was called on to portray Simba’s villainous uncle Scar, and Alfre Woodard (JuanitaMarvel’s Luke Cage) portrays Simba’s no-nonsense mother, Sarabi. JD McCrary (Tyler Perry’s The PaynesVital Signs) fills the shoes of Young Simba, a confident cub who can’t wait to be king, and Shahadi Wright Joseph (Hairspray Live, Broadway’s “The Lion King”) brings tough cub Young Nala to life.

Every kingdom comes with a trustworthy advisor or two. John Kani (Coriolanus, Captain America: Civil War) plays the wise baboon Rafiki, and John Oliver (Last Week Tonight with John OliverThe Daily Show with Jon Stewart) plays hornbill Zazu, Mufasa’s loyal confidant. When Simba goes into exile, he relies on two newfound friends—Seth Rogen (Sausage PartyNeighbors) lends his comedic chops to naïve warthog Pumbaa, and Billy Eichner (Billy on the StreetAmerican Horror Story) is the know-it-all meerkat Timon.

While most of the animals in the kingdom respect the king, the hyenas have other plans. Florence Kasumba (Emerald CityBlack Panther) portrays Shenzi, Eric André (The Eric André ShowMan Seeking Woman) is Azizi, and Keegan-Michael Key (PredatorFriends from College) plays Kamari.
