Default The Lion King

I recently got the idea to make a cast for an 80s version of The Lion King. Some casting choices were easier than others.

- Simba: Barry Gordon
- Nala: Cathy Cavadini
- Mufasa: Kenneth Mars
- Sarabi: June Foray
- Scar: Michael Rye
- Young Simba: Carl Stevens
- Young Nala: Susan Pollatschek
- Timon: Don Messick
- Pumbaa: Dom DeLuise
- Zazu: Andre Stojka
- Rafiki: Ken Sansom
- Shenzi: Susan Silo
- Banzai: Don Messick
- Ed: Frank Welker
- Sarafina: B.J. Ward

- Adult Nala - Judy Garland

- Sarabi - Verna Felton
- Scar - George Sanders
- Timon - Mel Blanc
- Pumbaa - Paul Winchell
- Rafiki - Paul Frees
- Zazu - either Hal Smith or Bill Thompson
- Shenzi - June Foray
- Banzai - Mel Blanc
- Ed - Mel Blanc

Default Re: The Lion King

(This would still be for the 1990s just like the time it was released)
Cub Simba: Macaulay Caulkin
Adult Simba: Michael Clarke Duncan
Cub Nala: Olivia Hack
Adult Nala: Jodi Benson
(alternatively, Tara Strong could voice Nala as a cub and an adult)
Zazu: David Ogden Stiers (I'd imagine him using either his natural voice [with a British accent of course], or something like his Nicky Flippers voice in "Hoodwinked")
Scar: Tony Jay
Serabi: Lisa Edelstein
Timon: Rob Paulsen
Pumbaa: Brian Doyle-Murray
Rafiki: Roscoe Lee Browne (they kinda have similar hairstyles too)
Banzai: Tim Curry
Ed: Frank Welker
Sarafina: Kath Soucie
Gopher: Kevin Michael Richardson

I'd leave in Whoopi Goldberg as Shenzi and James Earl Jones as Mufasa.

Default Lion King Remake

With that new Lion King remake being announced I figured it'd be interesting to see peoples thoughts on who they think would be good for the remake. Here's my personal list of who I'd like to see play these roles.

Simba- Jamie Bell
Nala- Anne Hathaway
Mufasa- Keith David
Scar- Gary Oldman
Zazu- Ricky Gervais or Eddie Izzard
Rafiki- Danny Glover
Banzai- Keegan Michael Key
Shenzi- Regina King
Ed- Curtis Armstrong
Timon- Paul Giamatti
Pumba- Danny McBride
Sarabi- CCH Pounder

I admit right off the bat that I'm not looking forward to the upcoming "live-action" remake of The Lion King at all, but I still thought that it could be fun to do a dream cast for it.

Ty Simpkins - Kid Simba
Kit Harington - Adult Simba

Ellis George - Kid Nala
Tessa Thompson - Adult Nala
Steve Buscemi - Timon
John Goodman - Pumbaa
Wesley Snipes - Rafiki
Patrick Stewart - Zazu
Angela Bassett - Sarabi
Laurence Fishburne - Mufasa

Tom Hiddleston - Scar
Leslie Jones - Shenzi
David Tennant - Banzai
Jim Cummings - Ed (no reason to get a celebrity, unless they do drastic changes to the character and give him actual dialogue)

I'd imagine Jim doing something different for Ed if he were to reprise his role for a live action reimaging, but I personally would go with someone who would make him sound even more animal-like such as Dee Bradley Baker, or Frank Welker, or someone else.
