‘Live-Action’ (yet 99.999% CG) Lion King Remake Begins Casting
Director Jon Favreau has announced the first TWO actors cast for his upcoming remake of The Lion King: Donald Glover (a.k.a. Childish Gambino, a.k.a. Young Lando) will play Simba. James Earl Jones (a.k.a. Darth Vader) will once again play his iconic role of Mufasa!
Here’s a piece I started before Kyle’s death. I haven’t felt much like drawing lately, which is really strange for me. I decided to bite the bullet and go ahead and finish it. I think it turned out well.
“SIMBA: I was just trying to be brave like you. MUFASA: I’m only brave when I have to be. Simba, being brave doesn’t mean you go looking for trouble. SIMBA: But you’re not scared of anything. MUFASA: I was today. SIMBA: You were? MUFASA: Yes. I thought I might lose you.”
