Why? The original cast is still alive. That's dumb.

Not actually one of them just passed away last week. Mufasa actor is the original. Besides it's been over 20 years not everyone can comeback deal with it.

True, I think it is a case of Irons and Jones were the only real names from the original. And lets be honest, if they had a white actor playing Scar, there would be hell to pay in terms of backlash in this day and age.

Remember, global audience. You have a generation of people who do not know who the originals are and you need name star power, especially for the new generation and to sell overseas.

Its like the Jungle Book. All CGI save for the one character so you can get away with it.
