The official full-length trailer for "The Lion King," re-imagined in live-action, was released Wednesday morning and it will give you all the "Hakuna Matata" feels. The makers have dropped the first full trailer of the film and we can't stop ourselves from talking about the magic they recreated. The live-action film is all set to hit the theatres this July.
The trailer shows, Simba's father Mufasa, uncle Scar, Rafiki, and not forget Timon and Pumba. The song 'In the jungle' has been incorporated in the trailer to give the old touch to the trailer. And if judging by the emotional early reaction to the nearly two-minute trailer that landed Wednesday, Jon Favreau's Lion King could well become the biggest of Disney's "live action" remakes.
The trailer opens with Simba's uncle, Scar, and transitions to James Earl Jones as Mufasa telling Simba about what it's like to be king. All of your favorite characters of the Disney hit are back in a live-action version and there's no doubt the movie will break records for Disney.
The all-star cast includes Donald Glover as Simba, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter as Nala, James Earl Jones as Mufasa, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Scar, Seth Rogen as Pumbaa and Billy Eichner as Timon. Utilizing pioneering filmmaking techniques to bring treasured characters to life in a whole new way, Disney’s 'The Lion King' roars into theaters on July 19, 2019."
