The circle of life never ends and now a whole new generation is being brought into the fold.
As part of Disney’s live-action reboots of all its classics, The Lion King will be released in July.
We already received a taste of the Hamlet retelling in November, courtesy of a teaser which included the film’s iconic beginning with the animal kingdom bowing in honor of their new prince’s birth.
As if that didn’t get you emotional enough, the full trailer certainly will.
The clip affirms the assumption that the CGI version will likely be a shot-for-shot remake of the animated version, which came out in 1994.
An all-star cast will be featured in the updated edition, including Donald Glover, Beyoncé, Seth Rogan, Billy Eichner, Chiwetel Ejiofor, John Kani, and John Oliver. James Earl Jones, Who lent his voice to the original, will be reprising his role as Mufasa.
We’ll feel the love on the 19th of July.
