According to The Wrap, both actors are in final negotiations to voice the characters and tbh, we couldn't be more excited about it.

Seth Rogen has appeared in countless classic films over the years including Superbad, Knocked Up and Kung Fu Panda and his quick with and hysterical charm will undoubtedly make an amazing Pumba.

Having had roles in several films himself, Billy Eichner made his name on TV, starring in shows such as Billy on the Street & Parks and Recreation as well as Bob's Burgers.

In the meantime, we're just gonna have to watch the original classic a few more times to get ourselves really hyped for what is sure to be one of the best remakes ever!
