Disney releases nostalgic teaser trailer for 'Lion King' remake

Disney has released the first teaser trailer for its long awaited live-action remake of The Lion King.

Disney has released the official teaser trailer for Jon Favreau’s computer-animated remake of “The Lion King,” and it’s nostalgic to those who relished the 90’s. 

The trailer has the main characters of the classic 1994 animated movie including Mufasa, Rafiki and Simba.

Further,  the famous ‘circle of life’ song and the classic scene where Rafiki holds baby Simba in the sky.

“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. – Disney
