“The Lion King” trailer has finally been revealed by Disney for their upcoming CG remake, and it’s quite the trip down nostalgia lane.
It’s not just a line-for-line remake, as the trailer shows us that they seem to have expanded things a bit, and matured the visual language they used to tell this story. But you don’t have to take my word for it!
Check out the trailer below:
Directed by Jon Favreau, “The Lion King” remake includes an all-star cast featuring Donald Glover as Simba, Beyoncé as Nala, James Earl Jones returning as Mufasa, Seth Rogen as Pumbaa, along with Chiwetel Ejiofor, Alfre Woodard, Billy Eichner, John Oliver, and more.
“The Lion King” arrives in theaters this July. It will be joined by “Aladdin” later this year as well.
