I remember when The Lion King was originally released in theaters. If I’m being honest, I’ll tell you that I went to go see it six times in theaters alone. Some of those times meant my Dad taking me to the theater when the movie had already begun. That’s how much I loved it then, and I still love it that much now. A live-action Lion King? Yes, please. This week brought the release of a teaser trailer that includes a familiar voice.
Take a look:
I’m so glad they are using James Earl Jones for Mufasa’s voice acting again. Just watching the teaser alone gives me fuzzy feelings. I can already tell how absolutely stunning it will be, and well…who doesn’t want to hear all that epic music in theaters again? I wonder if they’ll add any extra songs. I hope so!
The Lion King releases on July 19, 2019.
