disney the lion king new trailer

Disney has just dropped a new trailer for The Lion King and it delivers the closest look we’ve had yet at the stunning new adaptation. Watch above.

Helmed by Jon Favreau (who also directed 2016’s live-action, The Jungle Book) this trailer focuses on numerous iconic scenes from the OG animated movie, such as the wildebeest stampede and Scar telling Simba to run and never return — scenes that can’t help but make us all feel super nostalgic — and emotional.

In this remake, Simba is voiced by Donald Glover, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter voices Nala, Chiwetel Ejiofor is Scar, Seth Rogen is Pumbaa, Billy Eichner is Timon, John Kani is Rafiki, John Oliver is Zazu, Alfre Woodard is Sarabi, Keegan-Michael Key is Kamari, Eric Andre is Azizi, and Florence Kasumba is Shenzi.

The Lion King arrives in theaters nationwide July 19, 2019.
