Many had hoped that the Lion King would use a full black cast which had many fans hoping to see the duo behind Key & Peele (Keegan Michael Key & Jordan Peele) voice the pair. However, that looks to just not be the case anymore. Currently, Donald Glover has signed onto voice Simba with James Earl Jones returning Mufasa. With the cast also bring in caucasian actors the studio should consider using Benedict Cumberbatch (Doctor Strange) to possibly voicing Scar.
