Jagapathi Babu, Ravi Shankar dub for 'The Lion King'

Tuesday, June 25, 2019 • Tamil Comments

Disney's crown jewel, ‘The Lion King’, is much in the news.  Coming up with "ground-breaking technology that re-imagines the greatest story ever told", it is going to be dubbed in Telugu.  Disney is bringing together Brahmanandam and Ali to voice for Pumbaa and Timon, respectively.

What is more, Ravi Shankar (of the 'Bommalli ninnu vadhala' fame) and Jagapathi Babu have been roped into dub for Mufasa and Scar in the Telugu version of the flick.

“The character of Mufasa has been revered for a long time as an iconic father onscreen, and it was a unique experience to voice for him in Telugu. I did it for my family as they love the movie and many other Disney titles," Ravi Shankar said.

The 'Maharshi' villain Jagapathi Babu said, “Having portrayed a lot of villainous characters in Telugu cinema, voicing Scar was a different and memorable experience for me, and I was glad to be part of such a grand big-ticket entertainer. Disney films are a perfect package for the entire family and I hope to lend my trademark style to The Lion King as well!”

Directed by ‘Iron Man’ and ‘The Jungle Book’ fame director, Jon Favreau, Disney’s The Lion King will release on July 19 in Telugu, Tamil, Hindi and English.
