Many of us who grew up during Disney’s golden era probably lamented at the fact that kids these days think Frozen is the best animated movie ever. Well, they’re wrong, and soon we’ll get a chance to prove it. Disney just dropped a teaser trailer for a live action Lion King film, scheduled for July 2019. On the big screen, the world of Lion King would be a sight to behold.
With original music by Hans Zimmer and Elton John, The Lion King is directed by Jon Favreau (Iron Man, The Jungle Book) and stars Donald Glover as Simba, Beyoncé as Nala, Seth Rogen as Pumbaa, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Scar, John Oliver as Zazu, and James Earl Jones as Mufasa. Boy, are we (and our Frozen-loving little cousins) in for a treat.
