Alarm bells are ringing in the entertainment world this fine day with the teaser drop of Disney’s live-action remake of The Lion King. We’d be lying if we said tears and goosebumps didn’t also make an appearance on our side of things because the trailer is pure, unadulterated nostalgia. Also, shout out to the CGI team, the opening scene is as magic as you remember it, if not even better.
The cast is looking like damn fire too with Beyonce (Nala), Donald Glover (Simba), Eric Andre (Ed the Hyena), Seth Rogen (Pumbaa) and Chiwetel Ejiofor (Scar) so let’s just say if we could jump to its release date in cinemas next year, we would.
The Lion King will join a line-up of other Disney live-action remakes (including The Jungle Book, Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast and Mulan) is set to drop 18 July 2019.
