Imagine you’re a kid, waiting on a Sunday afternoon for your parent to put on Lion King post lunch. Now imagine yourself a few months into the future, waiting for the cinema to start rolling Lion King again for you. Yes, that’s right. Lion King is back, as a live action film this time!
The trailer begins with the wild land masses of Pride Lands and the voiceover of a king introducing the heir of the land. It shows the entry of Simba, Mufasa and Rafiki. They portray the exact versions of the animals in real life through the computer designed animations in the film. The trailer sets a thrill and it jogs all of us back to memories of the iconic animation by Walt Disney.
Set to release in the Summer of 2019, Lion King stars a variety of people like Donald Glover, Seth Rogen, Chiwetel Ejiofor, John Oliver, Billy Eichner and even Beyonce Knowles-Carter!
The cast looks amazing as it is but the trailer shows us just how realistic this is going to be as a film.
You might have watched the animated version and thought that nothing could be cuter than baby Simba but Lion King 2019 will prove you wrong. The graphics for this film make you feel like you’re watching the whole story unravel itself on something as realistic as Animal Planet.
It is set to be under Disney’s production and direction given by Jon Favreau.
They have brought back Hans Zimmer for the music of the film, the same as the 1994 release.
The Red Sparrow is ready to be thrilled by the movie, see you all in the theatres in Summer ‘19.
