New ‘The Lion King’ Trailer: Long Live the King
If you thought the last Lion King trailer looked like the old movie, wait until you see this one. Cause it really looks like The Lion King you grew up watching and loving, just with, like, CGI animals instead of cartoon ones. Watch it above.
Here’s the film’s official synopsis:
Director Jon Favreau’s all-new “The Lion King” 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. The all-star cast includes Donald Glover as Simba, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter as Nala, James Earl Jones as Mufasa, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Scar, Seth Rogen as Pumbaa and Billy Eichner as Timon.
There’s also a brand-new poster for the film:
The Lion King opens in theaters on July 19, 2019.
