FAQAdd to FAQ (Coming Soon)
Jonathan Taylor Thomas hasn't appeared in any production since 2015, so he is pretty much retired. He has chosen to live a life outside the spotlight, with no plans to make a comeback.
Also, Favreau wanted to honour the fact that this is a film set in the African safari, so he chose African-American actors for the main lion roles. Edit (Coming Soon)
