Disney has just released the first teaser trailer for the remake of The Lion King, recreating them from the original in photorealistic and crisper fashion. It also includes a peek at Mount Kilimanjaro and dozens of animal species found in the African savannah, including elephants, giraffes, zebras, and wildebeests among others.
A well-known voice cast has been assembled for the live-action remake, and the trailer makes that point by showcasing some of those names, individually, on just a black screen with James Earl Jones as Mufasa, Donald Glover as Simba, Seth Rogen as the warthog Pumbaa, Billy Eichner as the meerkat Timon, John Oliver as the hornbill Zazu, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter as Nala, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Scar, Keegan-Michael Key as the hyena Kamari, and John Kani as the mandrill Rafiki.
