‘The Lion King’ Movie Gets its First Trailer

Disney’s remake of the 1994 classic The Lion King just got its very first trailer, in the form of a quick minute and a half teaser aired during the NFL’s traditional Thanksgiving primetime game.

If you’re a fan of The Lion king like me, you just can’t wait to see the final result. In the trailer, we can see what look like the opening moments of the movie, in which Rafiki presents a young Simba to the animals of the Pride Lands, with the quintessential shot of Simba being hoisted above the rock. All the while, James Earl Jones’ narration as Mufasa plays while the original film’s opening track, “Circle of Life,” can be heard in the background. The film is scheduled to come out on July 19th, 2019.
