The only thing more awesome than animated animals in the Lion King are the amazing celebs that voice the characters in the movie. And for the first time we’re seeing them come up close and face to face. Disney posted the portraits on Twitter with the caption “The Pride” and we finally got to see Donald Glover with Simba, Seth Rogen with Pumba, Billy Eichner with Timon, and of course the queen herself Beyoncé with Nala.
Beyoncé also shared the portrait on her Instagram with no caption because, well we think it’s obvious that no caption was needed. And if that amazing news wasn’t enough to get you pumped for Lion King, Disney also shared a look behind the scenes of the film with a newly released snippet. And both fans and celebs are freaking out over the behind the scenes clips and the epic portraits.
The Lion King hits theaters on July 19.
