Here's A Side-By-Side Comparison Of The New 'The Lion King' Trailer Vs. The 1994 Original
Now this is a remake we can't wait to see!
Much like the sunrise in Circle of Life, we all woke up this morning to the first teaser trailer for Disney's upcoming live-action remake of The Lion King.
Narrated by Mufasa (voiced by James Earl Jones, who also voiced the character in 1994), the teaser is a cinematic replica of the iconic Circle of Life opening scene.
1. We can already hear the "Aaaaaah zabenya...!" from the very 0.0001 second of the trailer
2. The animals may be CGI, but the movements and formations are almost similar to the original!
3. Here's your first glimpse of Simba
4. We also get a sneak peek into that scene that's probably gonna kill our feels all over again
5. Ooo... hello Rafiki!
6. Cartoon baby Simba is cute, but HOMAIGOD we would protect live-action baby Simba with our lives
8. Ok here's another still of baby Simba 'coz it's Friday and y'all deserve some heartwarming fuzzies
9. We can already feel how epic this scene at Pride Rock is gonna be
For reference, the one on top is from the 2019 film, while the one at the bottom is from the 1994 classic.
10. "Remember..." *rawr*
The Lion King will be released in Malaysia on 18 July 2019
