John Oliver To Voice Zazu In The Lion King

Last Week Tonight host John Oliver has joined the cast of The Lion King, Disney’s live-action remake of their animated classic of the same name.

Oliver will voice the role of Zazu, the uptight bird who acts as an advisor to Mufasa. The character was voiced by Rowan Atkinson, better known by some as Mr. Bean, in the original animated movie.

The cast Oliver is joining already includes Donald Glover voicing Simba and James Earl Jones returning to once again voice Mufasa, as well as Seth Rogen and Billy Eichner providing a little comic relief as Timon and Pumbaa.

The Lion King is one of the next in what’s become quite the successful endeavor for Disney. Proven once again in a big way with their most recent live-action remake, Beauty and the Beast, a destroyer of records and the biggest of their remakes so far.

The movie is set to be directed by Jon Favreau, who has already found great success in Disney’s mission to remake their animated classics. He delivered their live-action take on The Jungle Book, which nearly brought in $1 billion worldwide when it was released last year.
