“Everything the light touches, is our Kingdom.”Disney’s CGI-driven remake of the classic 1994 animated film – The Lion King is announced for release on July 19, 2019, directed by Jon Favreau. The first trailer for the imminent of The Lion King has returned. Although baby Simba, of course, is revealed to be the focus as he is proudly displayed to the kingdom by Rafiki while the opening bars of ‘Circle of Life’ ring out. Simba (voiced by Donald Glover), son of the king, Mufasa (James Earl Jones, reprising his role from the original), can’t wait to rule his tribe and the pride lands. But not everyone in the kingdom celebrates the new cub’s arrival. Simba will have to figure out how to grow up and take back what is rightfully his.

The Lion King will focus on how Simba will learn the true meaning of responsibility, how to have an obligation to do something and to have courageous behavior.
The Lion King Trailer Review
The Lion King tells the tale of the birth, childhood and eventual manhood of Simba, a lion cub. The cub’s birth is announced in the opening sequence of the movie, called “The Circle of Life”. A Pantomime Villains are often the most memorable characters in a Disney animated film, and Scar is one of the great ones, aided by a pack of yipping hyenas who act as his storm troopers. With a voice by Jeremy Irons, and facial features suggestive of Irons’ gift for sardonic concealment, Scar is a mannered, manipulative schemer who prospers in bringing about the death of The Lion King. The early Disney cartoons were, of course, carefully animated by hand. There has been a lot of talk recently about computerized animation, as if a computer program could somehow create a movie. Not so. Human animators are responsible for the remarkably convincing portrayals of Scar and the other major characters, who somehow combine human and animal body language. But computers did assist with several remarkable sequences, including a stampede in which a herd seems to flow past the camera.
The Lion King Trailer Tweets
Posting on Twitter, one person wrote: “That Lion King remake trailer is laughably bad in my opinion. CG looks awful. I skipped the Beauty and the Beast remake and [am] definitely boycotting any future ones. When it comes to live action, stick to Broadway.”
Another didn’t hold back, stating that “I have a feeling the lion king remake is going to be awful and ruin my childhood. That feeling got closer to reality when the second name introduced in the trailer was Seth Rogan”.
But there was some serious excitement about the trailer, too.
“The Lion King” deals with real issues. By processing life’s realities in stories, children can prepare themselves for more difficult lessons later on. The saga of Simba, which in its deeply buried origins owes something to Greek tragedy and certainly to “Hamlet,” is a learning experience as well as an entertainment.
The Lion King trailer gives our first real look at Scar, Timon, Pumbaa, and those nightmare-inducing hyenas, in a film sure to draw huge crowds across the entire (united) kingdom. The Lion King will rule in India on 19 July 2019.
