Hugh Jackman NOT Playing Scar In Lion King Remake

Jackman also posted a photo of himself at Disneyland on Friday, which only added fuel to the fire. Director Jon Favreau shared an nearly shot-for-shot remake of the original 1994's film opening sequence, set to CIRCLE OF LIFE. Folks reportedly got emotional watching lil" Simba in this new world and who could blame "em? The only thing that doesn't make sense is why Disney didn't announce Jackman officially and why his own representatives are denying it. Following the success of Beauty and the Beast, The Jungle Book, and the extraordinarily under-seen Cinderella, there's going to be an influx of Disney revivals with actual humans in them.

"Jon Favreau's "Circle of Life" plays out exactly like you might remember, but that baby Simba is EVEN cuter", wrote Vulture's Kyle Buchanan of the footage. However, that is highly unlikely. Mufasa will be voiced yet again by the one and only James Earl Jones, who could simply not be replaced. Alas with what Jackman's representatives have said, it seems there's zero room for Jackman being involved. If Jackman and Beyonce both end up in the film, it would be one of the best ensemble casts Disney has ever compiled. This new report hasn't been confirmed by Disney or acknowledged during today's announcements, so feel free to read into this picture the Logan star recently shared however you like. The live-action remake will be released on July 19, 2019. The film will be directed by Guy Ritchie and now has no release date.

The Lion King is now slated to arrive in theaters in July 2019 with a voice cast that already includes Donald Glover, James Earl Jones, Seth Rogen, Billy Eichner and John Oliver.
