Roxy meets Timon and Pumbaa by Trey-Vore Roxy meets Timon and Pumbaa by Trey-Vore
I did this pic as an 20th anniversary pic for one of the best movies I have ever seen, animated or otherwise: Disney's The Lion King.

For this pic, I have had my sweet little Roxy meet so many different famous characters, so I have her meeting two of the most recognizable characters from the film: Timon and Pumbaa! Face it the moment they showed up you wanted to see a lot more of them!

I was partly inspired by my friend Belchic's question of "what if The Lion King was made in the 1960s?" and Walt Disney had his personal input on the movie, and came up with a possible voice cast and musical score. So with that in mind, I asked myself, "What if The Lion King came out in the 1980s?" and came up with a possible voice cast. My ideal cast would have been:

Corey Feldman as Cub Simba
Michael J. Fox as Adult Simba
Bettina Bush as Cub Nala
Molly Ringwald as Adult Nala
Peter Cullen as Mufasa
Annie Potts as Sarabi
Paul Reubens as Timon
John Candy as Pumbaa
Morgan Freeman as Rafiki
Rik Mayall as Zazu
Vanessa Williams as Shenzi
Chris Latta as Banzai
Frank Welker as Ed
Timothy Dalton as Scar

I also think for the music, Phil Collins would have done the score.

I guess that's part of the appeal of The Lion King: the timelessness of the movie.

Hope you guys like!

Personally I like the cast the way it was. But I like this picture.

I know, I do too. All I was doing was saying if it was released at least 10 years earlier than it was, who the voice cast would be like and who would have done the music.

Ah I see. Well I certainly liked most of your choices. Peter Cullen as Mufasa? HECK YEAH! Although I still like Darth Vader playing as Mufasa too.
