This morning Disney dropped the first teaser trailer for the upcoming live-action remake of The Lion King – yes, live action. Featuring a star-studded cast including Seth Rogen, Billy Eichner, Beyonce, Donald Glover and John Oliver, the rendition looks to be an incredibly visually stunning version of the 1994 classic fan favourite.
The film will add to a recent series of Disney live-action remakes of classic films, following The Jungle Book and Beauty and the Beast with Aladdin and Mulan still to come. It’s set to release on July 19th, 2019, so until then you can watch the teaser trailer below via a tweet by Walt Disney Studios.
