Here's A Side-By-Side Comparison Of The New 'The Lion King' Trailer Vs. The 1994 Original

The first teaser trailer for the live-action remake of Disney's 'The Lion King' was released today.

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. 

Check out these comparisons of how the shots look like compared to the original:

1. We can already hear the "Aaaaaah zabenya...!" from the very 0.0001 second of the trailer
