The Lion King: We know who will play Zazu!

Cinema 12 July, 2017

The cast of the Lion King is becoming more and more precise. After Simba and Mufasa, we know who will lend his voice to Zazu.

You still have a long way to go, my highness you can believe me … Someone warned you that the legend of the Lion King came back to add a little magic to our lives? Yes, we all grew up with Simba and we all cried when Mufasa died, and admittedly we all loved to hate Zazu, a bird that wants to do us good, but annoys us. Disney has the gift to create this kind of character and while the live-action of the Lion King is getting ready, it was unthinkable that this new adventure be made without the Royal Advisor. Disney or the main interested have not confirmed yet, but it seems that John Oliver was chosen to give his voice to Zazu!

The English talk show presenter who works for the American HBO channel has proved through his many programs of Last Week Tonight with John Oliver that he had the flow of words necessary to honor the character. He joined Donald Glover (Simba), James Earl Jones (Mufasa), Seth Rogen (Pumbaa) and Billy Eichner (Timon) in the casting. So we miss a Scar and a Nala. Who would you like to see / hear for these roles? Disney knows a lot of success with its new adaptations of classics and if you are fans of the universe, know that the new adventures of Mary Poppins will be released at Christmas 2018!
