“The Prophet” is the next project from The Lion King’s co director Roger Allers, The Disney alum will work with Salma Hayek who is leading the project based off of Kahlil Gibran’s poetry by the same name. The Prophet, seems to have a strong ensemble as the voice acting includes Quvenzhane Wallis from Sony Pictures’ Annie, as well as Liam Neeson from Taken and Star Wars with musical composition from masters such as Yo-Yo Ma. Since the book will come from a set of poetry from Lebanon, the Prophet will also take different artists and combine them including Tomm Moore from Oscar Nominated Songs of the Sea and Oscar Nominee Bill Plympton who created Cheatin’.
