From Disney Live Action, director Jon Favreau’s all-new – The Lion King – 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.
The Lion King is scheduled to be released on July 19, 2019, which marks the 25th anniversary of the release of the original film. It will be one of the first theatrical films to be released on Disney+ alongside Toy Story 4, Frozen 2 and Captain Marvel. What a wonderful time we live in 😍

It’s the circle of life — the first full length trailer for Disney’s live action remake of “The Lion King” dropped during Sunday’s Oscars.
The new footage didn’t reveal much about the upcoming feature, although it did seem to almost mirror the original 1994 animated classic. The latest trailer began with a familiar scene set to the chant from “The Circle of Life” as the sun rises and Rafiki lifts Simba over the kingdom.
The voice cast includes James Earl Jones, returning to his original role as Mufasa from the original film, along with Donald Glover as Simba, Beyonce as Nala, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Scar.
The first teaser trailer became Disney’s most watched trailer in a day, racking up a record 224.6 million views in its first 24 hours.

Since the film’s 1994 release, this scene has grown to iconic status. In November 2002, singer Michael Jackson sparked controversy by holding his son over the protective railing of a hotel balcony in Berlin. The event was witnessed by a large crowd of spectators who were watching from below. Some sources have claimed that Jackson was harmlessly attempting to emulate the scene from The Lion King.
