Full-Length Trailer for Disney's 'The Lion King' Directed by Jon Favreau

It's The Lion King, mate.

Whatever you think about Disney's live-action remakes of their animated classics, you can't deny that The Lion King looks gorgeous. We see Chiwetel Ejiofor scaring us all as Scar, we hear the legendary voice of James Earl Jones reprising his role as Mufasa, and we even get a brief look at Timon and Pumba'a. Check out the trailer for The Lion King in the player below! Watch the trailer above. The director is the man behind Iron Man, Elf and the 2016 Jungle Book remake, Jon Favreau.

Nearly every character Lion King fans are acquainted with makes an appearance in the trailer. When Simba goes into exile, he relies on two newfound friends-Seth Rogen (Sausage Party, Neighbors) lends his comedic chops to naïve warthog Pumbaa, and Billy Eichner (Billy on the Street, American Horror Story) joins the cast as know-it-all meerkat Timon.

Venezuelans rally to demand power, water
Washington has convened a UN Security Council for Wednesday to discuss the Venezuelan crisis . Guaido said earlier this week he feared abduction by government agents.

Directed by Jon Favreau, the film journeys to the African savanna where a future king is born. Borrowing the same plot from the original, the film is about a lion cub named Simba who runs away after his evil uncle kills his father and takes over the lion kingdom. Evoking nostalgia seems to be very much a goal of The Lion King, and we see a few iconic scenes from the animated film given new life. Scar, Mufasa's brother-and former heir to the throne-has plans of his own.

Disney's "The Lion King" roars into theaters on July 19, 2019.
