It was the year 1994 that the epic Disney movie The Lion King roared its way into our lives. The story, the songs, the magic still resonates with us today. This weekend, we get to experience the magnificent adventure of Simba, Nala, Timon, Pumbaa and the mighty Mufasa all over again with an updated version of the movie. I recently sat down with the youngest stars of the movie, JD McCrary and Shahadi Wright Joseph play the young Simba and Nala. We talked about feeling the love that is The Lion King.
Hairspray Live! has rounded out its cast with the addition of Ephraim Sykes (Hamilton) and Shahadi Wright Joseph (School of Rock). The two will portray, respectively, Seaweed J. Stubbs and Little Inez.
