The clip showed Vanellope, in a website named OhMyDisney.com, meeting all the Disney princesses in the hopes of stirring up some trouble. But as she interacts with them — in ways that in rapid succession lovingly skewer the history and tropes of Disney animated classics and princess — she develops a respect for them. And gives them a wardrobe change.

Lion King remake casts Donald Glover as Simba, James Earl Jones as Mufasa

In the first sign that Disney’s new take on The Lion King is moving forward since it was originally announced back in September, director Jon Favreau has taken to his Twitter feed to start announcing the cast for the new film.

Donald Glover is set to voice the main role of Simba this time around, taking on the part from Matthew Broderick, while James Earl Jones is to reprise his role as the powerful Mufasa (because honestly, no one else would be allowed to, anyway!)

The Lion King is the latest Disney animated classic the studio to be given the live-action treatment, following the likes of Cinderella and Beauty and the Beast which is out next month. While there are no human characters in the story, Favreau plans to bring the animation to life with the same CGI techniques he used on his critically-acclaimed live-action version of The Jungle Book last year. 

In addition to Simba, Glover is taking on another iconic role, playing Lando Calrissian in the young Han Solo Star Wars spinoff, which is currently filming. Jones, well known as a Star Wars veteran, reprised his voice work as Darth Vader in December’s Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
