The First Trailer For The Remake Of 'The Lion King' Has Dropped

Singer Hayley Williams of Paramore posted: "almost cried during the new Lion King trailer".

The first teaser trailer for Disney's live action version of The Lion King dropped on Thursday, and one particular scene has dredged up painful memories we'd long pushed to the bottom of our hearts.

The Lion King is the latest to join Disney's roster of live-action adaptation which includes Cinderella, The Jungle Book and Beauty and the Beast.

"I don't think we need a new Lion King, but I also cried watching the trailer so", said someone else, attaching a GIF of Hankuna Matata. As expected, this looks fantastic and will probably make a ton of movie because Favreau knows how to perfectly craft these fresh CGI Disney updates.

Earl Jones, reprising his role as Mufasa from the 1994 Disney classic, says: "Everything the light touches is our kingdom, but a king's time as ruler rises and falls like the sun".

I also love the cast: Donald Glover who'll be the voice for Simba, Seth Rogan who'll be Pumbaa and Queen Bey herself, Beyonce, who'll be the voice for Nala!? Take a look at the first teaser trailer, which shows off exactly what we'll be getting when the live-action Lion King hits theaters everywhere this summer. Simba's parents Mufasa (Jones) and Sarabi (Alfre Woodard) are seen from afar. (A sequel is already in the works.) As with that film, the new Lion King is expected to use performance-capture technology and computer-generated imagery to bring its animal characters to life. Scar, Mufasa's brother-and former heir to the throne-has plans of his own.

The Lion King is set to release in the U.S. on 19 July 2019.
