Walt Disney Studios has released the first teaser trailer for their upcoming live-action remake of The Lion King, and I’m living for it.
The teaser is quite short but shows the opening scene of the movie as Rafiki introduces Simba to the world on Pride Rock. The entire trailer is lovingly voiced by the voice of Mufasa, James Earl Jones, and it’s truly a sight to be seen.
Sure, it looks like a scene-for-scene remake, but if you have a problem with that then you’re a bit of a dummy, aren’t you. From what we see, it genuinely looks fantastic – even if I’ve been a bit unsure about all of these live-action remakes in the past.
Check out the trailer below:
The Lion King is set to hit theatres on July 19, 2019.
