Critically Disney’s live action remakes of their animated classics may have hit a bumpy road with Dumbo, Aladdin fans are still flocking to see the films. Next month the next remake (not so much live action more animated) The Lion King will be released hoping to bring ‘pride’ back to Disney.
Today we have a couple of TV Spots for your viewing pleasure. First Spot is our first chance to hear Nala (Beyoncé Knowles-Carter) speak, second Spot ‘True King’ is all about the circle of life. The one true king…Simba!
Before that Disney have also sent us a set of Character Posters which showcase the film’s main characters…
Disney’s The Lion King, directed by Jon Favreau, 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.
