HAKUNA MATATA! The Trailer For “The Lion King” Is Here And My Life Is Complete

By Iman Zia | 10 Apr, 2019

THIS IS NOT A DRILL PEOPLE. The long-awaited Disney remake of ‘The Lion King’ just dropped its first official trailer, and it’s so overwhelming you won’t be able to control your emotions (I’m currently drowning in a pool of my own tears). It’s everything you’d hope it to be – dripping in nostalgia and quite the homage paid to the original film.

 

The film, starring actors like James Earl Jones, Donald Glover, Beyoncé Knowles, Seth Rogen among others gave ‘The Lion King’ fans a treat with its tantalizing trailer.

We got to see a deeper glimpse into Pride Rock, with Scar, Simba, Rafiki, Mufasa, Timone, and Pumba – all bearing striking resemblances to their 2D cartoon predecessors.

There are lots of delicious visual nods and references to the beloved cartoon original, despite the darker tone and incredibly photo-real CGI.

(I really do wish Rowan Atkinson reprised his role as Zazzu (the only slight issue I have with the film)).

The trailer gave us lovely snippets of the original movie’s songs, like ‘Hakuna Matata…’

Wait for it…
