A shining new era is tiptoeing nearer! Next up in Disney’s line of live-action and realistic-CGI remakes, the long-awaited teaser trailer for The Lion King remake has arrived. Fans are already going wild, and they should; baby Simba looks fuzzy enough to reach out and touch.

The Circle Of Life

The teaser takes viewers back to the 1994 original with the grand proclamation of Simba’s birth to the entire animal kingdom. The lifelike CGI effects make the scene even more mesmerizing.

Directed by Jon Favreau, the film will follow the original Lion King plot. However, we’ll get a whole new cast of voice actors for the characters and a more realistic look at Mufasa’s kingdom.

He Lives In You

The star-studded voice cast includes Donald Glover (Simba), Seth Rogen (Pumbaa), Beyonce Knowles-Carter (Nala), Keegan-Michael Key (Banzai), Alfre Woodard (Sarabi), and Billy Eichner (Timon). “It is a director’s dream to assemble a talented team like this to bring this classic story to life,” Favreau said in a statement after the casting announcement in November 2017.

The only returning cast member from the original 1994 film is James Earl Jones, whose voiceover work as Mufasa simply can’t be duplicated. In fact, his booming voice is heard throughout the teaser trailer.

Be Prepared

When it was announced that The Lion King would be released in summer 2019, fans waited patiently for any first looks at what the film would offer. The teaser trailer was released online on November 22, 2018 (Thanksgiving Day), and the internet went crazy. With 224.6 million views across the globe in one day, the teaser trailer became the Disney’s most-viewed trailer in its first 24 hours.
