‘The Lion King’ Posters Show off Simba and the Animal Gang

Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures

The animal gang’s all here — Disney has released new character posters for “The Lion King.”
The new version of the classic ’90s animated film is due out in 50 days, as the movie’s Twitter account reminded fans on Thursday. In celebration, Disney unveiled the 11 posters. It’s like the Mouse House is holding up its characters for all the kingdom to see, just like Rafiki and a new cub.
Simba and Nala have two individual posters each, giving fans the chance to see them as both adult lions and cubs. There are also individual posters for Pumbaa, Timon, Rafiki, Mufasa, Scar, Sarabi, and Zazu. Each poster also highlights the actor who stars as the particular animal character. The star-studded cast includes Donald Glover, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter, Seth Rogen, James Earl Jones, and more.
First up, the adult versions of Simba (Glover) and Nala (Knowles-Carter) as well as Pumbaa (Rogen), and Timon (Billy Eichner).
