With just 50 days to go until the release of the long-awaited live action remake of 'The Lion King', Disney have given audiences a proper glimpse at how each character is going to look.

The animated versions of the likes of Simba, Nala, Scar, Timon and Pumbaa have been seared into the consciousness of a generation - but following the release of the official trailer a month ago, now you can get a proper look at more of the beloved characters.

The likes of Donald Glover (Simba), Beyonce (Nala), James Earl Jones (Mufasa), Chiwetel Ejiofor (Scar) are set to feature in the remake of the much-loved 1994 film, directed by Jon Favreau. It hits Irish cinemas on July 19th.

The reaction has been generally positive amongst fans... apart from some who are disappointed that Pumba the warthog looks like an actual warthog and not an animated warthog. Imagine!
