The 64-year-old actor will voice Sarabi, Simba's mother, in Jon Favreau's new version of the 1994 epic musical, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Woodard has joined Donald Glover as Simba and James Earl Jones, who would be reprising his role as Mufasa.
Seth Rogen, Billy Eichner and John Oliver will also voice parts in the feature.
Jeff Nathanson wrote the script, with Favreau and Jeffrey Silver producing the project, which is currently shooting in LA.
