John Oliver to Voice Zazu in 'Lion King' Live-Action Movie!

John Oliver has joined the star-studded voice cast of the upcoming live-action version of The Lion King!

Disney is bringing back the classic story with James Earl Jones reprising his role as Mustafa and Donald Glover lending his voice to Simba.

Zazu is the bird who lends political advice to Simba and Mustafa and Oliver will take over the role for the original film’s Rowan Atkinson, according to THR.

Seth Rogen and Billy Eichner will be playing the roles of Pumbaa and Timon.

The live-action remake has a release date set for July 19, 2019 and it will be directed by Jon Favreau, who recently turned The Jungle Book into a worldwide smash.
