The Lion King
The Jungle Book director Jon Favreau helms this CG-animated re-imagining of the 1994 Walt Disney classic. Features the voice work of Donald Glover as Simba, Beyoncé as Nala, James Earl Jones as Mufasa, Seth Rogen as Pumba and Chiwetel Ejiofor as Scar.
Had Favreau been able to step out of the shadow of the original, this could have been something truly worthwhile.
