With Disney’s The Lion King pouncing into the world of live action, Walt Disney Studios has brought together the entire voice cast in an epic group photo. The ensemble brings together a large array of talent, including the iconic James Earl Jones, who is reprising his role as the mighty Mufasa.

The new film, directed by Jungle Book director, Jon Favreau, brings the “Circle of Life” onto the big screen in a revolutionary new way, using some of the same techniques used to bring the world of The Jungle Book to life. For those not familiar with the tale of The Lion King, the story follows the young Simba, destined to be the king of Pride Rock, as he faces the dark reality of betrayal from his own uncle, Scar, who wants to take control of the entire Pridelands.
