Disney has released a new trailer for its remake of the 1994 animated film, The Lion King, showing off a new look at the live-action adventures of Simba and Nala.
There’s quite a bit more beyond the teaser that we saw back in November. It opens with a young Simba and Nala exploring the elephant graveyard and encountering Scar’s band of hyenas, along with Simba’s exile at the encouragement of his uncle.
Like that first teaser, it’s clear that Disney is approaching this film as a nearly shot-by-shot remake, with some of the original animated film’s iconic scenes brought to life almost identically. There’s even a brief clip of Pumbaa and Timon singing “The Lion Sleeps Tonight” right at the end.
The Lion King will hit theatre on July 19th, 2019.
