From Simba to Mufasa, each major character gets a poster and we get a clear look at how they look in this more realistic interpretation of the Disney animated classic. Fans are also reminded of the major actors appearing as these characters including Donald Glover as Simba, Seth Rogan as Pumbaa, Beyonce Knowles-Carter as Nala and James Earl Jones reprising his role as Mufasa. Not only has there been character posters released, but a new 30 second ad has been released to get fans excited for this upcoming remake. Nothing too new is seen in this ad other than what has already been seen in prior trailers with Circle of Life as the background music. However with Toy Story 4 on the horizon as Disney’s next big tent-pole film, we can assume there is one final trailer is in store for fans soon.
The Lion King is set for release July 19th 2019.
