Natural Star Nani has done a marvelous job with his voice for Simba character, he has successfully brought the right emotions at key scenes. Especially for the younger Simba version, the father-son bonding scenes and sentimental scenes have come out perfect because of Nani’s voice in the film.

Jagapathi Babu has lent his voice for Scar role that has multiple shades and acts differently as per the situation. He has showcased the cunnings, evilness, violence and all sorts of Scar character alive with his strong voice. The Lion King Mufasa voice is given by talented dubbing artists Ravi Shankar and he did complete justice in bringing the royalty, preaching of being royal king, emotional support to Simba and turns as one of the assets of the movie.

Brahmanandam voice for Pumba and Ali voice to Timon character will be the main entertainment providers in The Lion King. Their combinational scenes and comedy that is generated by the funny Telugu dialogues that have the comedian's personal voice touch will make after laugh out loud in the cinema halls. Lipsika sounded perfect as Nala and Shaking Seshu, Kadambari Kiran did justice to the small roles they have dubbed.
