'The Lion King' Gets Brand New Trailer

The Lion King Full Trailer Reveals Astonishing Photo-Real CGI

The countdown to The Lion King is officially on. Yet there are glimpses of James Earl Jones' reprise as Mufusa, as well as a musical first-look at the beloved Timon and Pumbaa duo.

The teaser trailer for Disney's live-action remake broke records after its release previous year.

Directed by Jon Favreau, the film journeys to the African savanna where a future king is born. The clip opens to a young Simba (Donald Glover) and his friend Nala (Beyonce) encountering his villainous uncle Scar (Chiwetel Ejiofor) and his hyena minions at the elephant graveyard.

The Lion King is one of the many live-action remakes of Disney's classic films after Beauty and the Beast, the recently released Dumbo and the upcoming Aladdin. However, as we see in the first official The Lion King trailer, that CG animation is breathtakingly attractive. Simba idolizes his father, King Mufasa, and takes to heart his own royal destiny. There is one wild card, though, and of course it's from Disney: The Lion King.

While this adaptation does boast an impressive new cast, James Earl Jones returns to voice his same role from the 1994 animated classic, King Mufasa.

This time, we see more of director Jon Favreau's ("The Jungle Book") CGI re-creations of memorable scenes from the original, including the wildebeest stampede, Simba's exile from Pride Rock and even Timon (Billy Eichner) and Puumba (Seth Rogan) singing a few bars of "The Lion Sleeps Tonight".
