Comedians Seth Rogen and Billy Eichner have big shoes to fill as they are in final negotiations to be the new Timon and Pumbaa in Jon Favreau and Disney’s live-action remake of the Lion King. We’ll let you guess which guy will voice which.
They will join Donald Glover and James Earl Jones who will voice Simba and Mufasa respectively. The movie is currently in pre-production and is set for a 2019 premiere.
The two iconic characters were originated and are still voiced famously by Nathan Lane (Timon) and Ernie Sabella (Pumbaa) in animated projects connected to the Lion King universe.
