Disney has released a new trailer for its remake of the 1994 animated film, The Lion King, showing off a new look at the live-action adventures of Simba and Nala.
The Lion King retells the story of Simba, the lion cub prince who just can’t wait to grow up and become king of Africa’s Pride Lands.
Donald Glover is playing the voice of adult Simba in this version of the tale. The cast also includes James Earl Jones as Simba’s father Mufasa (reprising his iconic role from the original movie) and Chiwetel Ejiofor as Simba’s uncle, Scar.
Now, with about three months left before the remake hits theaters, Disney has unveiled a full-blown trailer for the film.
It is the latest in a line of live-action remakes from Disney, which has released adaptations of a number of its classic animated films in recent years, including The Jungle Book, Beauty and the Beast, and, most recently, Dumbo. In May, the studio will release a live-action version of Aladdin, and it plans to release a remake of Mulan in 2020.
The Lion King will hit theater on July 19th, 2019.
