The Lion King Full Trailer Reveals Astonishing Photo-Real CGI

Following the teaser that was released during NFL's primetime game last Thanksgiving, Disney has now released a new full-length trailer of "The Lion King", their latest live-action adaptation of one of their animated classics.

The all-star cast also includes John Oliver as bird Zazu, Keegan Michael Key as Kamari, a goonish hyena and Alfre Woodard as Sarabi, wife to Mufasa and Simba's mom.

The caption of the video reads: "Disney's The Lion King opens in theaters July 19, 2019".

In the original animated version of the Lion King, Scar was orange and black, in contrast to the golden yellow and rich brown of king of the pride Mufasa.

If "Lion King" fans have a foremost concern, it is over the look and sound of Mufasa's rival brother - the villainous Scar as now voiced by the Oscar-nominated Chiwetel Ejiofor.

The new clip, featuring dazzlingly realistic footage of the African savannah filled with giraffes, antelopes, and zebras, begins with Simba getting some advice from his wicked uncle Scar.

"Everything you see exists together in a delicate balance", Jones declares.

The cast of "The Lion King" performs the opening number at the 62nd Annual Tony Awards in New York, June 15, 2008. The trailer features our favourite character in new avatar while keeping the essence of the classic film alive. It's a shot-for-shot remake.

The reimagining of The Lion King follows the recent success of Disney's live-action movies, including Tarzan, Maleficent, Cinderella, Beauty And The Beast and the upcoming Aladdin film. Donald Glover plays Simba, Billy Eichner plays Timon, Seth Rogan plays Pumbaa and Beyonce plays Nala. With help from a curious pair of newfound friends, Simba will have to figure out how to grow up and take back what is rightfully his.
