The teaser trailer for the upcoming live-action remake of Disney’s The Lion King has been revealed!

The first look at the Jon Favreau-directed movie shows some of the iconic sequences from the animated film remade in live-action, including baby Simba’s debut at Pride Rock.

James Earl Jones is reprising his role as the voice of Mufasa and his voice is heard in the trailer in the famous speech to Simba: “Everything the light touches is our kingdom. But, a king’s time as ruler rises and falls like the sun. One day, the sun will set on my time here, and will rise with you as the new king.”

The movie also features the voices of Donald Glover as Simba, Beyonce Knowles-Carter as Nala, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Scar, Seth Rogen as Pumbaa, Billy Eichner as Timon, John Oliver as Zazu, and Keegan-Michael Key as Kamari.

The Lion King will hit theaters on July 19, 2019.

    The Lion King and Aladdin is what have I been waiting for. I was looking forward to Mulan, but it seems like they’re really fucking that film up. Which is sad, because that was one of my favourite disney films.

    I’m as excited to see this as the next person but it’s kind of a joke to call it “live-action” no?? It will ostensibly contain just as much animation as the original movie, just with more advanced technology to make it look real… It’s a remake, not a live-action remake.

    yup. it’s 100% CGI with zero humans in it. its not remotely ‘live action’

  • Emeline

    Using real animals is a shame! They’re beaten, starved etc ! Don’t go see it!
