New Poster for Jon Favreau’s The Lion King Released

A new teaser released for the live-action The Lion King from Jon Favreau, and while it was essentially the exact same teaser from a few months back, a new poster did release, so I guess there is something new to check out.

The poster is pretty damn great if I have to say so myself. I love the warm feel it gives off, and of course the vibrant orange tones. Anyway, the movie releases on July 19.

If you want to check out the new teaser it’s below, but it’s not new.

About The Lion King

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 all-star cast includes Donald Glover as Simba, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter as Nala, James Earl Jones as Mufasa, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Scar, Seth Rogen as Pumbaa and Billy Eichner as Timon. Utilizing pioneering filmmaking techniques to bring treasured characters to life in a whole new way, Disney’s “The Lion King” roars into theaters on July 19, 2019.
