The Lion KIng (2019)

Disney just released the first full-length trailer for its second of three live-action (?) remakes of its classic animated films hitting theaters this year. And, boy is it a beauty!

Unlike Dumbo which released last month and Aladdin which hits theaters this May, The Lion King isn't really a live-action version, but with the studio's use of game-changing VFX animation, you'll think you are sitting right in the middle of the jungle along with Simba, Scar, Mufasa, Pumbaa and the rest of the Savannah gang.

"After the murder of his father, a young lion prince flees his kingdom only to learn the true meaning of responsibility and bravery."


The film is directed by Jon Favreau and stars an all-star voice cast which includes Donald Glover as Simba, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Simba's evil uncle Scar, Seth Rogen as warthog Pumba, and James Earl Jones returning as the voice of Mufasa, the former king of Pride Rock.

In the clip, released today, we hear Scar telling young Simba "Life's not fair. It it my little friend?" as a pack of hyenas track Simba's every move. The trailer also features an incredible wildebeest stampede that threatens Simba's life.

Listen closely at the end of the trailer and you'll hear Pumbaa and Timon reprising a bit of The Lion Sleeps Tonight.

The Lion King will storm into theaters this summer on July 19th, 2019.
