  • The Lion King is almost here and we've got an all new look at the whole cast of Disney's live action remake.

  • It's been 25 years since the animated classic blew up the box office and now it's about to do it again.

  • Let's take a look at all the new actors taking on the new interpretation.

  • Donald Glover plays Simba who is the one true king who must take back the Pridelands.

  • Chiwitel Ejiofor plays the villainous uncle Scar, who comes up with an evil plan to try and take the throne.

  • Beyonce plays Nala who is said to have a bigger role and her own song this time.

  • Beyonce also has a new original song created with composers Lebo M and Hans Zimmer.

  • Seeing you again? You don't what this will mean to everyone!

  • Alfre Woodard plays the composed and royal Sarabi who is left to watch the Pridelands die with Scar as the new king.

  • Get ready for some laughs.

  • Kegan Michael Key plays Kamari.

  • Florence Kasumb voices Shenzi.

  • And Eric Andre is Azizi.

  • Together they are the henchmen for Scar and a hilarious group of hyenas.

  • JD McCrary and Shahadi Wright Joseph are Young Simba and Young Nala.

  • They will definitely get themselves into trouble by sneaking out to that shadowy place where they must never go.

  • Hakuna Matata, the ultimate Disney duo Timon and Pumbaa will be played by Billy Eichner as Timon and Seth Rogen as Pumbaa, let's hope he doesn't really stink up the place.

  • What's a "matto"?

  • Nothing! What's the matter with you?

  • And the most different looking character is Zazu played by John Oliver.

  • Zazu will be keeping Simba in check, or at least he will try to.

  • For some reason there is no Mufasa poster so we made our own.

  • The king of the Pridelands Mufasa, and one of the saddest moments in all Disney history.

  • Dad! Let me come~ I can help!

  • No son, you stay with the other cubs.

  • The Lion King is looking amazing and we can't wait to see it when it roars into theaters on July 19.
