Walt Disney released the first official trailer of the animated remake of The Lion King. The much loved movie was first released in 1994. We have long been introduced to the King of the jungle, Musfasa and his heir Simba. The tale has come to grace our screens again. While we are all very much familiar with the story, what is interesting is that this remake combines live action with animation.
The film is being made by the director of The Jungle Books, Jon Favreau. The cast includes Childish Gambino (Simba), Beyonce Knowles(Nala), Seth Rogen( Pumba) and James Earl Jones will be reprising his role as Mufasa. The trailer showed a lot of resemblance with the original. It starts with Lion King’s iconic dialogue evoking immense nostalgia! The teaser looks good, lets hope the entire movie does justice to the original.
The film will be releasing on 19 July 2019.
Check out the trailer here. We are very excited, are you?
