As someone who has always enjoyed the Walt Disney Pictures classic animations, I am sometimes surprised when we find that a live action version is being planned. Of course some of them look spectacular in terms of how they CGI the animals against the human interaction and its without question that “Christopher Robin” and the recent “Jungle Book” were all very well received. “Aladdin” is coming soon and looks to be fun (see our trailer post HERE) and now its time for “The Lion King” to showcase its Official Trailer. Check it out below.

The Premise: Simba, the son of Mufasa and the Prince of the Pride Lands, hopes to follow in his father’s footsteps. Mufasa’s brother, Scar, plots to betray Mufasa and take over the Pride Lands, forcing Simba into exile, where he will meet Timon and Pumbaa. Simba will have to face his destiny to be King.

Donald Glover as Simba
JD McCrary as young Simba
Seth Rogen as Pumbaa
Chiwetel Ejiofor as Scar

Piercing Ken Thoughts: This sure does look to be beautifully done, but as I’ve noted I don’t generally get myself to the all-ages films straight away based on the heavy workload on the other website. As a longtime collector of the Disney films, I’ll probably just wait and grab the Blu-ray when it becomes available. What about you reader though? Do you like this trailer and has it raised your own level of interest in the film. Chime in down below in the comments.
