Here is the first trailer for The Lion King.
This looks gorgeous! Some shots of this movie look like shots from the animated film. This is looking to be the best live action movie from Disney in 2019.
Unlike all the hoopla surrounding how attractive the actor is playing Jafar in the upcoming live action Aladdin, Chiwetel Ejiofor is menacing and evil looking as Scar. Simba is cute and I’m happy that James Earl Jones is back as Mufasa. This is going to be a hit this summer and I’m excited to see this.
Plot Synopsis for The Lion King:
“Jon Favreau’s “The Lion King” journeys to the African savanna where a future king is born. Simba idolizes his father, King Mufasa, and takes to heart his own royal destiny. But not everyone in the kingdom celebrates the new cub’s arrival. Scar, Mufasa’s brother and former heir to the throne has plans of his own. The battle for Pride Rock is ravaged with betrayal, tragedy and drama, ultimately resulting in Simba’s exile. With help from a curious pair of newfound friends, Simba will have to figure out how to grow up and take back what is rightfully his.”
The Lion King roars into theaters on July 19th, 2019
