Wonderful news!

23 years after the release of the animated film, legendary actor, James Earl Jones will be returning as the voice of Mufasa in the upcoming CGI, live-action, version of Disney's "The Lion King." Rapper and actor, Donald Glover, and creator of the hit TV show, "Atlanta," has been tapped to play the voice of Mufasa's son, Simba. 

This sounds like it's going to be a great recreation of a childhood favorite, brought back to the big screen for a new generation of kids to love and enjoy.
