Disney has released the first teaser for Disney’s live-action remake of the iconic Lion King.
Taking us by surprise with a trailer of the 1994 animation, the animation which raked in $766 million at the box office, is the highest-grossing animated film of all time.
Although the plot remains the same, some of the voice-overs in this new action film include the finest Donald Glover, Beyonce, John Oliver and Chiwetel Ejiofor.
In the trailer we see the familiar opening moments of the story, where Rafiki presents a young Simba to the animals of the Pride Lands.
‘The Lion King’ is directed by Jon Favreau, who was behind the successful live-action remake of The Jungle Book.
Donald Glover will play Simba, Beyonce will play his mum Nala and Chiwetel Ejiofor will play his uncle Scar.
