Disney’s THE LION KING, directed by Jon Favreau (“The Jungle Book”), journeys to the African savanna where a future king is born. Simba idolizes his father, King Mufasa, and takes to heart his own royal destiny. But not everyone in the kingdom celebrates the new cub’s arrival. Scar, Mufasa’s brother—and former heir to the throne—has plans of his own.
The battle for Pride Rock is ravaged with betrayal, tragedy and drama, ultimately resulting in Simba’s exile. 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.
Staying true to the classic story, director Jon Favreau utilizes pioneering filmmaking techniques to bring the iconic characters to the big screen in a whole new way. Featuring the voices of Donald Glover as Simba, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter as Nala, James Earl Jones as Mufasa, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Scar, Seth Rogen as Pumbaa and Billy Eichner as Timon, Disney Studio’s THE LION KING opens in U.S. theaters on July 19, 2019.
Thoughts? Yes/No? Can you watch The Lion King trailer without crying?
So, what do you think about this? Are you all for live action remakes of Disney classics, or would you rather they just leave them alone? When the announcement for the cast came out back in November 2017, I was a little skeptical. I had no clue how they were going to do a live action version. Now, I am 100% on board with this! I was thinking, “Umm, are people going to be acting like animals? Are they rewriting the script to make it seem like this happened to humans?”
But, wow! I couldn’t have imagined how gorgeous this movie is going to be, and I’ve only seen tiny little bits of it! What do you think? Are you ready or skeptical?
