We've all been waiting for a full trailer for Disney's "live-action" remake of The Lion King, and now that the movie is 100 days away from release, The Mouse House has delivered the goods.

The new footage is full of callbacks to the beloved original, with shot-for-shot teases of many iconic scenes, including the Wildebeest stampede, the Hakuna Matata strut, and Timon and Pumbaa's rendition of The Lion Sleeps Tonight. We also get our first look at - and listen to - Chiwetel Ejiofor's menacing take on Scar.

Check out the new trailer below, and let us know what you think in the comments.


Director Jon Favreau’s all-new “The Lion King” 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.

Disney’s The Lion King roars into theaters on July 19, 2019.
