Entertainment Weekly has released several new photo stills from their upcoming live-action reimagining of The Lion King. The photos include some iconic scenes fans will recognize from the animated film as well as a behind the scenes photo of director Jon Favreau and Donald Glover, who voices Simba. Take a look at the photos below:
We are so excited for this and we have been since we saw the teaser trailer a couple of years ago at D23. We couldn’t help but tear up seeing all the beauty that Disney wanted to bring to a new medium. Sure, it’s still CGI, AR, and VR, but we just know it’s going to tell a story that touches our hearts.
The Lion King hits theaters July 19, 2019.
