Big news, Disney fans. The director of the "Lion King" remake has revealed two cast members for the upcoming film.

Jon Favreau tweeted Feb. 17 that Donald Glover will voice Simba.

Glover recently won a Golden Globe for his performance in "Atlanta," a series he writes and produces.

But that's not all. We also know who will play Mufasa: the one and only James Earl Jones. 

Jones, as you might remember, voiced Mufasa in the 1994 original.

As if we weren't excited enough already.

The release date for the live-action film has yet to be announced.
