The countdown begins to the release of the live action film, The Lion King!
Released in theatres on July 18th and 25 years since the release of the original and animated film. Just in time for the school holidays!
A new trailer has been released and overall, it is amazing!
You will get to see all the beloved characters of the film, including Mufusa, Rafiki, Scar and Simba, (as a baby, child -EEEKK! Prepare for an overload of cuteness- and an adult), and of course, lovable duo: Timon and Pumbaa!
It shows promise that this film will be even better than the original, as well as the most anticipated movie of the year.
The Lion King boasts an all-star cast featuring Beyoncé as Nala, Donald Glover as Simba, Billy Eichner as Timon, Seth Rogan as Pumbaa, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Scar and James Earl Jones returning to his role as Mufasa.
So what are you waiting, check out the trailer!
In the mean time…
Why not watch the original movie and relive the magic of a timeless Disney classic of all time. DVDs are available at various Wellington City Library branches.
I cannot recommend The Lion King enough! You will laugh. You will cry. You will be guaranteed to sign along to songs such as Circle of Life, Hakuna Matata and Can you feel the love tonight.
