The film studio/mega company is hoping that the portrayal is purrrrrfect.
Ever since Disney announced that it was remaking many of its most popular animated features into live-action films, the natural question was “what about Lion King?” Well, we have our answer. The studio has posted the first teaser trailer for the upcoming film, and it nails all of the important Lion King cues.
We have Simba the cub.
We have Rafiki lifting Simba over a precipice in front of the animal kingdom.
And we have James Earl Jones.
That’s the Triforce.
The Lion King arrives in theaters in July 2019.
