The Lion King Official Trailer
The king….has returned as Walt Disney Studios and director Jon Faverau release the new official trailer for their upcoming live-action film The Lion King. View trailer below.
The Lion King tells the story of Simba, a young lion who is to succeed his father, Mufasa, as King of the Pride Lands; however, after Simba’s uncle Scar (Mufasa’s jealous younger brother), murders Mufasa, Simba is manipulated into thinking he was responsible and flees into exile. Upon maturation living with two wastrels, Simba is given some valuable perspective from his childhood friend, Nala, and his shaman, Rafiki, before returning to challenge Scar to end his tyranny and take his place in the Circle of Life as the rightful King.
Wow….definitely got goosebumps while watching that. As to expected, this new trailer showcases plenty of new footage from 2019’s The Lion King, with our look at this movie version of Scar as well as a few other iconic moments from the Disney classic. There has been some debate on whether this movie will be good or will it just play upon the childhood nostalgia for those who grew up with the original 1994 animated film. Still, regardless of that notion, this live-action remake of The Lion King surely does look both amazing and promising at the same time. Can’t wait to see it…..
The Lion King roars into theaters on July 19th, 2019
The trailer looks stunning! Even if the film does end up a shot-for-shot remake, it’s about due time for a rewatch. 😉
