The Lion King: watch the breath-taking latest trailer for the live-action adaptation

The latest trailer has arrived for Disney‘s upcoming live-action adaptation of The Lion King.

You can get a good look at Simba (voice by Donald Glover as an adult and JD McCrary as a cub) and glimpse at some of the film’s most iconic moments. There’s also a nice little clip of Timon (Billy Eichner) and Pumbaa (Seth Rogen) singing!

Watch the trailer below:

The film stars Donald Glover, Seth Roger, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Alfre Woodard, Billy Eichner, John Kani, John Oliver, Florence Kasumba, Eric André, Keegan-Michael Key, JD McCrary, and Shahadi Wright Joseph with Beyoncé Knowles-Carter and James Earl Jones. It is directed by Jon Favreau.

Disney’s The Lion King journeys to the African savanna where a future king is born. Simba idolizes his father, King Mufasa, and takes to heart his own royal destiny. But not everyone in the kingdom celebrates the new cub’s arrival.

Scar, Mufasa’s brother—and former heir to the throne—has plans of his own. The battle for Pride Rock is ravaged with betrayal, tragedy and drama, ultimately resulting in Simba’s exile.

With help from a curious pair of newfound friends, Simba will have to figure out how to grow up and take back what is rightfully his.

The Lion King arrives in cinemas on 19th July 2019.
