The Lion King Gets Another Trailer That Looks Plays Like an old Animated One

Disney has put out another full trailer for The Lion King, and it follows an old trailer for the original animated version, just like the first one. So that means you’ll probably get all emotional if you’re a fan of 1994’s The Lion King.

In fact, a Darth Blender already put together a side-by-side to see how closely it resembles the animated one, which you can check out below.

About The Lion King

Disney’s The Lion King opens in theaters July 19, 2019.

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.
