The Lion King is back in the movies in July 2019 in a movie produced by Jon Favreau and performed by genuine actors in flesh and bones! Among them: the talented Beyoncé who plays Nala and should give us a remastered version of the famous duet “Can You Feel the Love Tonight” with her costar Donald Glover playing Simba. For the special effects, Rob Legato known for making us dream with Avatar and Titanic, among others.
An incredible cast then described by Jon Favreau himself as follows: “It is a director’s dream to assemble a talented team like this to bring this classic story to life”.
Deep in the African savanna, all animals celebrate the birth of their future king, Simba. Months go by. Sambal idolizes his father, king Mufasa, and takes to heart his own royal destiny. But not everyone seems to agree. Mufasa’s brother and former heir to the throne, Scar, has plans of his owns. The battle for Pride Lands is ravages with betrayal, tragedy and drama, ultimately leading in Simba’s exile. With help from two new friends, Timon and Pumbaa, the young king will have to figure out how to grow up and take back what is rightfully his.
We’re looking forward to seeing how it roars and discovering the first pictures!
