Seth Rogen and Billy Eichner Are Your New Pumbaa and Timon

No worries here. Whether you think Jon Favreau’s upcoming Lion King remake is a shameless cash grab or a creative reinvention of a timeless classic, there’s no denying that this voice cast is legit. After getting the OG Mufasa back and casting Childish Gambino as Simba, we know who our Timon and Pumbaa are going to be. Seth Rogen is our new Pumbaa and Billy Eichner our new Timon.

That’s a pretty solid casting call for filling the sizable hooves left behind by Nathan Lane and Ernie Sabella. Now the only question is whether or not Favreau will land Beyoncé, as he reportedly wants.
