Believe the hype! The Lion King‘s extended trailer does nothing but raise our anticipation, for this remake.
The Lion King is still Disney’s most profitable animated feature. With the live action feature around the corner, fans of the original have flocked to watch the trailers. New fans are declaring The Lion King “Beyoncé King.” If you haven’t seen Todrick Hall’s remix of the trailer you are missing out. Which don’t worry we’ve attached it below for you. Also, you’re welcome, because the video is a musical mash up work of art.
Disney’s The Lion King, directed by Jon Favreau, journeys to the African savanna where a future king is born. Simba idolizes his father, King Mufasa, and takes to heart his own royal destiny. But not everyone in the kingdom celebrates the new cub’s arrival. Scar, Mufasa’s brother and former heir to the throne, has plans of his own. The battle for Pride Rock is ravaged with betrayal, tragedy and drama, ultimately resulting in Simba’s exile. With help from a curious pair of newfound friends, Simba will have to figure out how to grow up and take back what is rightfully his. Staying true to the classic story, Favreau utilizes pioneering filmmaking techniques to bring the iconic characters to the big screen in a whole new way. Also featuring James Earl Jones as Mufasa, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Scar, Seth Rogen as Pumbaa and Billy Eichner as Timon, Disney’s The Lion King opens in U.S. theaters on July 19, 2019.
