Among Disney’s animated hits, “The Lion King” stands tallest for a lot of fans.

Given Disney’s success in live-action remakes it was little surprise when the company announced it was doing a live-action version of the animated classic.

Previously, Donald Glover was announced as Simba, James Earl Jones returning as Mufasa and John Oliver as Zazu.

Now, a big star has joined. Disney announced that Hugh Jackman (“Logan”) will voice Scar.

“The Lion King’ is set to be released in 2019.
