Can you feel the love tonight?
If you’ve been under a rock, then you may not have noticed that new trailer for Disney’s The Lion King dropped. It landed in my inbox earlier this morning and I am all types of hype about it. If you were on the fence about a Lion King remake before, this trailer is certainly going to change your mind.

If you know anything about me, you know that my daughter and I are HUGE (and we mean bigly) Disney fans. One of the first DVDs I bought her was The Lion King, and whenever we are at Walt Disney World and Animal Kingdom, we have to see The Festival of The Lion King.
Here’s the rundown:
Disney’s “The Lion King, directed by Jon Favreau (“The Jungle Book”), 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.
Staying true to the classic story, director Jon Favreau utilizes pioneering filmmaking techniques to bring the iconic characters to the big screen in a whole new way. Featuring the voices of 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, Disney’s “The Lion King” opens in U.S. theaters on July 19, 2019.
We’ve got 100 days (as of this posting) until The Lion King hits theaters on July 19. Starring faves like Childish Gambino Donald Glover, James Earl Jones, Beyonce, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and Alfre Woodard, you know it is going to be GOOD.
I can’t wait to be in a jam-packed theater to watch this!
