    Talk about some big paws to fill.

    Disney classic The Lion King is getting yet another sequel, and this installment of our favorite animated story that broke our childhood hearts will feature some fresh voices.

    The Lion Guard: Return of the Roar will debut on Disney Channel and Disney Junior in November, starring some pretty big names. The whole gang, including Simba, Nala, Timon, Pumbaa, and Rafiki, are set to return for the tale's latest chapter. The new television movie revolves around Simba and Nala's son, Kion. The flick is a lead-up to a new TV series, The Lion Guard, coming to Disney Junior in 2016.

    We're pretty excited to see (and hear) this new cast.

    But we can't forget those who made the original movie one to remember. Here's a look at some of the voices from The Lion King's past, plus the newbies taking over.
