If you were watching the Oscars last night you might have caught the latest updated teaser trailer for the upcoming The Lion King remake. Disney also released an official poster for the film.
The new trailer for The Lion King is very similar to the original one that was released a couple months back. The major differences include new angles of Simba (sneezing), Zazu in flight and other minor scene changes. The background music features the iconic “Circle of Life” as the original trailer did.
The 2019 The Lion King features a very strong cast and production team. The cast features Donald Glover as Simba, Beyoncé as Nala, and James Earl Jones returning to play Mufasa along with The Jungle Book’s John Favreau as director. Elton John returns to rework some of his original 1994 The Lion King compositions while Hans Zimmer returns to score the movie.
The Lion King hits theaters on July 19, 2019. Are you excited for the remake? Talk about it in our all-new WDW Kingdom Disney Forums!
