It was just a few days ago that ‘Aladdin’ trailer was unveiled, and another such tale that a lot of us have watched in our childhood, ‘Lion King’ is coming once again to freshen up our memories again. The much-loved animation film of the ‘90s is back in live-action, and the trailer was unveiled by Disney on Wednesday.
The trailer features the protagonist lion, Simba being subjected to contrasting views, one by his father Mufasa and the other by his evil uncle Scar. Only brief moments of Simba with Timon and Pumbaa, Rafiki and also Nala, to be voiced by Beyonce, are shown. The focus is clearly not as much on the drama and emotions, as much as it on the action.
While it’s slightly odd to imagine some of our favourite characters in live-action, the recreation in the format and the locations look stunning.
Watch the trailer here:
The movie has been directed by Jon Favreau, whose last similar live-action adaptation, ‘The Jungle Book’ had set the records tumbling worldwide. It wouldn’t be wrong to expect a similar response from ‘Lion King’ at the box office. ‘Lion King’ releases on July 19, 2019.
Netizens were excited with the release and some were even 'crying' with memories of their childhood coming back.
Here's what the netizens had to say about the movie:
