  • “Feature Film” – The Lion King (2019)

    • Trivia

    • Jeremy Irons expressed interest in reprising his role as Scar.

    • Benedict Cumberbatch turned down the role of the voice of Scar.

    • James Earl Jones, Hans Zimmer, Elton John, and Tim Rice are the only people who worked on the original animated film that reprise their respective roles, as the voice of Mufasa, the composer of the film, and songwriters.

    • Donald Glover grew up watching the original film and mentioned that while recording the music for the remake, he didn't need anybody to teach him how to sing the songs, he had been singing since he was a child.

    • Billy Eichner did not have to audition for the voice of Timon. Jon Favreau happened to be a fan of his and suggested the thought to Eichner's agent, who told him about it; he accepted it in a heartbeat.

    • Jon Faverau revealed in an interview that he brought James Earl Jones back as the voice of Mufasa because: "I see it as carrying the legacy across. Just hearing him say the lines is really moving and surreal, the timbre of his voice has changed. That served the role well because he sounds like a king who's ruled for a long time."

    • Scar's villainous song "Be Prepared" was originally to be left out of the film due to its Nazi themes which Disney executives were afraid to tackle and also because Chiwetel Ejiofor's voice was not fit for the singing. This drew a lot of ire from film critics and fans. However, the studio relented and put the song back in the film.

    • The hyenas Shenzi, Kamari, and Azizi are named after the Swahili words for "savage," "mighty", and "moonlight", respectively. Kamari and Azizi were originally named Banzai and Ed in the 1994 animated film, but were given African names for this film.
