(WIXN) Welcome back to the Pride Lands—The Lion King is back.
Disney unveiled its first trailer for the live-action remake of the 1994 animated classic.
The movie is directed by Jon Favreau, who brought the world the first Iron Man movie and the live-action remake of The Jungle Book. That 2016 movie grossed nearly $1 billion worldwide, and The Lion King will use the same computer technology that brought The Jungle Book to vibrant life.
The voice cast is pretty incredible, too:
- James Earl Jones
- Donald Glover
- Seth Rogen
- Chiwetel Ejiofor
- Billy Eichner
- John Oliver
- Keegan-Michael Key
- Beyonce Knowles-Carter
The Lion King opens in theaters on July 19, 2019.
