The Walt Disney Studios is celebrating Thanksgiving with a feast for the eyes! The studio just released the first teaser for director Jon Favreau’s The Lion King!

Of all the Disney animated classics that have been reimagined in live-action (or photo-real CG), The Lion King may be the most anticipated. This is sure to be one of 2019’s biggest hits.

This trailer, appropriately enough, teases some of the iconic moments from the original film. The visual effects are beyond impressive. The technology that made 2016’s The Jungle Book look so incredible has evolved.

Disney has also released the first one-sheet from the film.


Disney’s The Lion King hits theaters July 19, 2019.
