Simba, Pumbaa and Timon Get Personified


(click to enlarge)

Ever wonder what The Lion King would look like if it were cast with actual people? Well, if you missed the Broadway show (or the inevitable Hollywood reboot in the future), here’s one idea.

From artist Chacckco, we have this cool little piece which personifies three of the film’s main characters, Simon, Pumbaa and Timon. It’s weird to list Pumbaa before Timon, that never happens. Remember when they had their own show? That was great.

I’m surprised Pumbaa is more buff that pudge, but I guess you’d have to be to fight off all those hyenas later on.

  1. Although, the artwork is great,…This is Paul at his finest.

    First off, Simon? At first glance I thought the characters were renamed, but the spelling for Pumbaa and Timon are the same. Secondly, “buff, that pudge”? Really? Also the length is embarrassing, it dose not take much effort to elaborate SOME, or present more works done by this artist. I realize these are simple blog posts, and Unreality may not even pay these,…(not even sure what noun should be used, as calling him a writer is EXTREMELY degrading to other artists)..people. Don’t get me wrong, I have seen some great work by other author’s but Paul’s has always present the same, lame ass excuse for work.
