The film is directed by Jon Favreau and done in the same style as his last film, Disney’s The Jungle Book (2016).

Some highlights from the trailer are a recreation of the iconic Pride Rock scene, as well as narration from James Earl Jones, returning to play Mufasa.

But most of all, the teaser trailer shows a bunch of title cards of its amazing cast, including Donald Glover, and one Mrs. Knowles-Carter.


The poster, also released Thursday, shows a young Simba with his little paw inside the pawprint of his father.

The teaser has made many Disney fans immediately excited for the film...

I remember turning on the vcr player & watching Lion King for the first time as a little kid, then rewatching it over & over again, it was the first animation movie i've ever watched, can't wait to see the new one, it will surely bring back alot of memories 🦁

I wasn’t even gonna mess with the new Lion King film. But right when I hear that “NAAAAAAAANNNTNNTTTSSSS INGENBBEEEEEYGGGSSSSSAAAAAAA NAHGABDJDKDKHBBA” I’m back to my childhood. Let’s GOOOOOOOO.

...while others are laughing at how calling a film full of CGI animals “live action” is a bit of a stretch.

@BrodyLogan It’s CGI like the Jungle Book. So the actors used motion capture suits.


The Lion King will be released July 19, 2019.
