The live-action ‘Lion King’ movie gets its first trailer

Words by Eve Oswald


In absolutely HUGE news, Disney has released the first official teaser for The Lion King remake.

The epic trailer replicates the ’94 original opener – ‘Circle of Life’ and all – but with live-action, photo-realistic animation. And it looks truly incred.

Backing up the film are a slew of big names, with Donald Glover as Simba, Beyoncé as Nala, Seth Rogan as Pumba, Eric André as Azizi the Hyena and John Oliver as Zazu. James Earl Jones has also returned as the voice of Mufasa. 10/10.

Director Jon Favreau  (The Jungle Book) is at the helm, while Elton John and Tim Rice have collaborated with Beyoncé to rework the soundtrack. Once again, 10/10.

Watch the trailer below, we swear you’ll get goosebumps.
