Trailer of Live Action Lion King Will Make You Nostalgic
Disney has released the first full-length trailer for the upcoming live action Lion King movie; a remake of the 1994 animated classic.
After Avengers: End Game, Lion King is perhaps one of the most anticipated movies of the year. The 1994 Lion King is one the highest-grossing films of all time so the live action remake has some big shoes to fill.
The movie boasts a star-studded cast; Scar, the villain has been voiced by Chiwetel Ejiofor, while Donald Glover plays Simba, Billy Eichner plays Timon, Seth Rogan plays Pumbaa and Beyonce plays Nala.
The trailer shows Simba grow from a lonely cub to the ruler of the animal kingdom, while he makes friends with a cast of characters along the way.
Ejiofor narrates the powerful trailer, which gives fans the first up-close look at the CGI magic used to bring the animal kingdom to life. The film is set to premiere on July 19 – 25 years after the original film was released.
