Disney just keeps the goodness coming! The first teaser trailer for Disney’s remake of The Lion King is here and it’s giving us chills.
The Lion King will star Donald Glover as Simba, Beyoncé as Nala, and James Earl Jones returning as Mufasa. Both Elton John and Hans Zimmer are also returning for the movie’s music. The remake, which will hit theaters on July 19, 2019, comes on the tail of a few other classic Disney films getting upgrades including Mary Poppins Returns, Aladdin, and Dumbo.
The film will be directed by Iron Man director Jon Favreau and will be computer-animated, making it more realistic than ever before. The original Lion King movie was released in 1994 starring Matthew Broderick, Jeremy Irons, Nathan Lane, Matthew Broderick, and more.
