The First Poster for the Live-Action Lion King Movie Has Arrived

Oh I just can’t wait to be king.

The first official poster for the upcoming live-action Lion King movie has officially arrived. Featuring a young Simba with his paw in an imprint left behind from what is presumably his father Mufasa, the poster shows a highly-realistic CGI rendering of the young lion inside a cave. Young Simba will be voiced by JD McCrary while adult Simba will be handled by Donald Glover.
