We have our first glimpse into Lion King’s live-action film and the excitement is nearly killing us all.
The teaser features the iconic moment at pride rock where Rafiki shows of a new born Simba to an eager crowd, and also features the original track “Circle of Life”.
Jon Favreau has directed the remake, which means a ton of A-listing crew. Hans Zimmer will be winning with the background score, and Elton John will return with the old compositions we know and love from the animated film.
Donald Glover plays Simba, Beyonce as Nala and James Earl Jones retaining his role as Mufasa.
We are thrilled to bits with this new rendition of Lion King and can’t wait to see more. The remake is all set for release on 19th July, 2019.
