Kids, teenagers, women, old, people of every age, who have not watched and been a fan of Lion King? We definitely are and we have some good news for Disney movie fans. Disney is bringing a treat for Lion King fans in 2019. Disney is doing a Lion King remake as live action movie. Last year Jungle Book got a remake and years 2019 and 2020 will see a lot of exciting live-action remakes of popular movies including Aladdin, Lion King, Dumbo, and Mulan etc.
The Lion King movie has been one of the most popular films of all times and it looks like the remake will reinforce that. The movie teaser, in only 24 hours of its release, got more than 224.6 million global views, becoming the most viewed Disney trailer. The star-studded cast includes James Earl Jones as Mufasa, Childish Gambino as Simba, Beyonce as Nala, Billy Eichner and Seth Rogen as Timon and Pumba, and Scar being played by Chiwetel Ejiofor. The movie is being directed by Jon Favreau who has also directed movies, which have done well on the box office including Iron Man 1 and Iron Man 2.
The trailer, released on Thanksgiving, shows Rafiki presenting young Simba to the animals of Pride Land. Earl Jones’ voiceover as Mufasa is something we are looking forward to, again! We will once again be able to enjoy Zazu. Oh, and trailer of the remake is nearly a shot-to-shot remake of the original thing.
All in all, we are beyond thrilled and anxiously waiting for the movie, aren’t you?
