The first trailer for the live action The Lion King has dropped

Disney has released the first teaser trailer of the live-action remake of the classic film The Lion King, originally released in 1994. It’s the first taste of the new film which will hit cinemas in the summer (July) of 2019.

The incredible voice cast, including Donald Glover (aka Childish Gambino) as Simba, Beyoncé as Nala, Eric André as Azizi the Hyena, John Oliver as Zazu, James Earl Jones returning as the voice of Mufasa, and many more.

While the jury is still (obviously) out on whether this new take on an old classic will overtake the 1994 original The Lion King, the trailer does give you a feel of what will be an absolute epic.
