‘The Lion King’

“The Lion King” is one of the most anticipated Disney films. The original movie was released in 1994 and did great business at the box office. The story is inspired by a Shakespeare novel of the same name.

The cast includes Jeremy Irons, Matthew Broderick, Jonathan Taylor, James Earl, Moira Kelly, Ernie Sabella, Nathan Lane, Rowen Atkinson, Madge Sinclair, Robert Guillaume, Cheech Marin, Jim Cummings, and Whoopi Goldberg. Tim Rice and Alan Menken will compose the score for the film.

The untitled ‘Han Solo’ film

The upcoming “Han Solo” film is directed and produced by Phil Lord and scripted by Jon Kasdan.

It is the second film in the famous “Star Wars Anthology.” The standalone movie features Woody Harrelson, Alden Ehrenreich, Emilia Clarke, Thandie Newton, Donald Glover, Jones Soutamo and Phoebe Waller.

The story is about Chewbacca and Han Solo, who are stuck on a remote island and try their best to get out of the situation.

Principal photography began in March 2017 at Pinewood Studios. The movie will hit the global cinemas on May 25, 2018.

‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’

“Star Wars: The Last Jedi” is a highly-anticipated Hollywood film. It is directed, produced, and written by Rian Johnson. It is a joint project of Lucasfilm and Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures.
