The first look at Disney’s live-action/CGI remake of “The Lion King” dropped Thursday, and we already can’t wait for new Simba to be king.
The teaser trailer opens with the familiarity of the 1994 classic, as director Jon Favreau reimagines the “Circle of Life” ensemble gathering at Pride Rock to welcome baby Simba. The powerful voice of James Earl Jones, who reprises his role as Mufasa, booms: “Everything the light touches is our kingdom.”
Watch the trailer below.
“The Lion King” is set to hit theaters July 19.
