According to The Wrap, the pair is currently in the midst of negotiating their contracts to play the iconic duo. Rogan is playing Pumbaa, and Eichner is taking over Nathan Lane's role as Timon. We can already tell that "Can You Feel The Love Tonight" is going to be hysterical.

They'll be joining the already iconic cast, with Childish Gambino Donald Glover set to play Simba and James Earl Jones reprising his role as Mufasa. My childhood is shaking in its boots.

Be prepared for Lion King's July 19th, 2019 release!
