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.

Hello there my friends and those who might have just discovered “The Chronicles Of Piercing Ken” Lifestyle Blog. Today I’m going to be using my voice to share the winners of the 2017 Tony Awards which aired last night on CBS. The program honors the Broadway Stage and is probably my very favorite of the awards programs that airs. This might surprise you since I am more of a movie goer than a Broadway play attendee but with the movies that I enjoy the most never really getting their due, I have come to find The Tony’s quite fun. I’ve culled the full winners from the Internet and I figure if I am to use “The Chronicles” a lot more professionally that I should get on some mailing lists and have this stuff sent to me direct, but I digress; here are the winners of the 71st Annual Tony Awards (which were hosted by Kevin Spacey) May I have the envelope please…….
