THE LION KING opens next week, and so more and more clips are coming out teasing memorable moments from the original animated version, including the scene in which Simba and Scar battle.
There’s no doubt that we’re excited about the release of the live-action version of Disney’s The Lion King, and Disney is definitely anticipating a big draw to the theaters next weekend.
With the help of TV spots and featurettes and various other promotions, we’re pretty sure this movie is going to knock out the current number one movie, Spider-Man: Far From Home.
Disney’s upcoming film 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 all-star cast includes Donald Glover as Simba, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter as Nala, James Earl Jones as Mufasa, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Scar, Seth Rogen as Pumbaa and Billy Eichner as Timon, and utilizes pioneering filmmaking techniques to bring treasured characters to life in a whole new way.
The Lion King pounces into theaters July 19th.
