Jon Favreau's CG remake of The Lion King is progressing steadily, and the cast is slowly building up.

The Oscar-nominated 1994 animated feature version of The Lion King has grossed more than $968 million worldwide and inspired the long-running Tony-nominated musical, directed by Julie Taymor. Woodard has extensive experience with voiceovers, too, having lent her recognizable vocals to a handful of movies and TV shows ranging from Dinosaur to The Wild Thornberrys. Reportedly, Beyoncé is the first choice to voice Nala in the film, but that casting has yet to be confirmed. Sarabi did not have an overly large role in the original movie, but as Simba's mom, the role is a very important one. Of course, they'll join a star-studded cast that already includes Donald Glover as Simba, James Earl Jones reprising his role as Simba's father, Mufasa, Billy Eichner and Seth Rogen playing meerkat/warthog double act Timon and Pumbaa and last but not least, Chiwetel Ejiofor, who signed on just last week for the part of Scar.
