Go wild! The Lion King is back!
Disney has released the first official trailer for “Lion King’s” live-action remake today, giving lovers of Simba (and the others) a first look at what they should expect to see of the film’s many iconic characters.
The trailer opens with Simba and Nala running into a pack of hyenas with Scar, of course, at the lead. This scene gives us a peek at the movie’s famous villain.
Other classic scenes are also included in the trailer, including Mufasa showing Simba their kingdom and Timon and Pumbaa showing him the true meaning of “hakuna matata. To be expected, the trailer features a cache of the iconic music featured in the animated version of the film as well.
The live-action remake for “Lion King” features a long-list of a star-studded cast, including Donald Glover (Simba), Beyoncé (Nala), Billy Eichner (Timon), Seth Rogen (Pumbaa), John Oliver (Zazu), James Earl Jones(Mufasa) and Chiwetel Ejiofor (Scar).
The film is scheduled to air in theatres on July 19.
