Here’s what the Jouberts had to say about Jeremy Irons as their narrator:

What does Jeremy Irons bring to “Game of Lions” as narrator? 
More than you would imagine. He brings a perfection and voice, obviously, but he reads the script with such authority that it reeks of credibility, and so it should. Jeremy has been a friend and collaborator for 12 years now, on seven films. So he understands every sentence and the behavior that is being described. If he does not understand what I have written, we stop, I convince him that it is correct or we change it. We have come to know Jeremy as a man of such professional integrity and character and personal mettle that very few have.
