The goosebump-inducing minute-long trailer returns viewers to Pride Rock, and shows the African savanna’s various inhabitants prepare to welcome their adorable future king — Simba. Merging CGI with live-action, we’re given a sprawling view of the beautiful landscape, alongside teases of beloved characters like Rafiki.
Directed by Jon Favreau, this live-action adaptation boasts a fantastic cast — Simba is voiced by Donald Glover, Pumbaa by Seth Rogen, Scar by Chiwetel Ejiofor, Nala by Beyoncé, and Azizi by Eric André.
The Lion King arrives in theaters nationwide July 19 2019.
