The live action version of The Lion King is one of the most anticipated films of 2019. Of course, with its prestige comes both good and bad press surrounding the casting choices. SNL has chosen to play off of this and mock up what Lion King auditions might have looked like if they had Mary J. Blige (Tiffany Haddish), Kit Harington (Alex Moffat), Oprah Winfrey (Leslie Jones), Eminem (Pete Davidson), Lin-Manuel Miranda (Cecily Strong), John Oliver (Mikey Day) and more audition for The Lion King.
