Now the day has come and its time to head into the deepest jungles and watch how this tale unfolds as the film opens in theaters everywhere. I’ve repeated the premise and casting below the poster.

The Premise: In the African savanna, the young lion Simba idolizes his father, Mufasa, and longs to succeed him as King of the Pridelands. Before this can happen, his jealous uncle Scar initiates a coup which results in Mufasa’s death and Simba’s exile. Simba grows up in the company of Timon and Pumbaa, a meerkat and warthog pair with a carefree lifestyle. As tensions rise, he is drawn back into a battle with Scar by the friends from his past life.

Disney’s “The Lion King” Official Trailer (Opening This July)

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.

If you missed that post for some reason just click HERE to see it because we are now at the time of this series being streamed in its entirety. Take a look at the poster which I’ve followed with the premise and voice casting.

Netflix Presents: Matt Groenig’s “Disenchantment” Official Trailer

As I’ve been ramping up the Film and TV content here on “The Chronicles”, I’m just going to keep on going with this revealed trailer for the new Matt Groenig show called “Disenchantment”. This will go to the Netflix streaming service and after the clip you can check out some premise and the voice cast. Don’t worry, I’ll also toss my personal editorial views in for good measure. Let’s go.

The Plot: Set in the medieval fantasy kingdom of Dreamland, the series follows the story of Bean, a rebellious and alcoholic princess, her naïve elf companion Elfo, and her “personal demon” Luci.

The Cast/Characters:
Abbi Jacobson as Princess Tiabeanie
Eric Andre as Luci & Pendergast
Nat Faxon as Elfo
John DiMaggio as King Zøg
Tress MacNeille as Queen Oona, Prince Derek & The Fairy
Maurice LaMarche as Odval, Big Jo & The Washmaster
David Herman as The Herald, Guysbert & Jerry
Sharon Horgan as Queen Dagmar
Lucy Montgomery as Bunty & The Enchantress
Billy West as Sorcerio, The Jester, Mertz & Pops the Elf
Jeny Batten as Kissy the Elf & Tess the Giantess
Rich Fulcher as Cloyd, Turbish
Matt Berry as Prince Merkimer
Noel Fielding as Stan the Executioner

Piercing Ken Thoughts: Since I’m still watching “The Simpson”s and really enjoyed “Futurama”, I’m going to give Matt’s latest offering a chance when it becomes available for streaming. The great thing about this being on Netflix is that no programming of the DVR is required and if you have a few hours to kill then a series like this can be blasted though in a day. I mean “binged”. The trailer seems funny and quirky and plays along with the mystical realms and the whole “Game Of Thrones” angle so perhaps it will be a nice dose of comedic fun. What do you readers think about this trailer? Will you be setting a reminder on whatever means you use to alert you on August 17th when the show becomes available? Chime in down below.
