The Lion King 3D Celebrity Look-Alikes!
Is it just us, or are a lot of celebrities starting to look like Lion King characters lately? Catch the 3D re-release of The Lion King in cinemas now!
Do you remember when The Lion King first came out? I sure do. A landmark of Disney animation, the gorgeous savannah tale took its cues from Shakespeare’s Hamlet before spinning the story out in all sorts of ways, making a totally unique and wholly memorably film. And hey, guess what? Disney has decided to join the hot new craze in cinema and re-release it in eye-popping 3D!
As we were revisiting this classic, though, something occurred to us: An awful lot of celebrities have been looking more and more like our favorite Lion King characters lately. Here’s what we thought—what do you think, Bettys?
Simba: Emma Stone
Specifically, Emma Stone in The Help. There’s something about Emma’s never-shy grin combined with that hair that gives her the quality of a loveable young lion cub. Don’t you think?
Mufasa: Whoopi Goldberg
Dignified? Check. Mane of hair? Unexpected sense of humor? Check. Person you’d totally want to teach you the ways of the world? Check. Whoopi is Mufasa through and through.
Scar: Jason Momoa
Look! Just LOOK! The resemblance between Conan and Game of Thrones star Jason Momoa and Scar is uncanny! They even have the exact same facial expression! Of course, by all accounts Jason Momoa is a significantly nicer guy than Scar, but still.
