The first trailer for Disney’s Remake of The Lion King has roared online in time for Thanksgiving, and it’s pretty spectacular.
While many are calling it a “live action” remake, is it really live action if all the characters are CGI? Whether you call it a live action remake or simply a remake, you have to admit, the characters and look of the film is simply stunning.
The new film hits theater in July with a star-studded voice cast, and will be directed by Jungle Book and Iron Man director Jon Favreau.
This is the third Disney remake of an animated classic happening in 2019, and the fourth within a year. Next month, we can expect to see Mary Poppins Returns with Emily Blunt starring as the nanny who is practically perfect in every way. Then 2019 will see Dumbo March 29th, Aladdin on May 24th and finally The Lion King on July 19th. It’s a busy year for Disney films, which will also see two Marvel films and a Star Wars film, as well as Pixar’s Toy Story 4. Then of course there’s Frozen 2 on November 22nd, 2019.
What do you think of the Lion King trailer, and do you think it will be able to hold it’s head high and roar at the box office with so many other Disney films vying for the top spot on the rock?
